Facebook Privacy & Public Policy Manager, Partnerships in Washington, District Of Columbia


Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.


Facebook is looking for an experienced professional to work on our Privacy & Public Policy team. The team's mission is to develop privacy-protective and innovative approaches to data that help bring the world closer together and improve people's lives. In this role, you'll help the company promote privacy in the context of our partnerships with third-party app developers; academics and other researchers; ad measurement partners; and others. This work may include working with the operations team responsible for enforcing our Platform Policy — which governs the ways in which third-party developers may use information that Facebook users send them. It may also include engagement with the app developer and academic communities on best practices for ensuring that data can be used for economic and social good while also protecting privacy.

You'll also work closely with leads in related functions at Facebook, including product managers, engineers, designers, researchers, attorneys, and communications and marketing teams, to build privacy into the products and services that we're developing and shape Facebook's privacy vision in these areas. And you'll serve as a subject matter expert for Facebook's global policy team on Facebook's products and work with our teams to evaluate and respond to legislative and regulatory developments around privacy.

The ideal candidate for this role is a self-starter, a good team player, and creative problem solver that is able to switch easily between detailed work and high-level strategic thinking. This candidate will be deeply familiar with key technology policy issues — such as privacy and data portability — and have a meaningful understanding of Internet technologies. And the candidate will be passionate about the services Facebook provides and the people that we serve.

The role is located at our headquarters in Menlo Park, California or in Washington, DC.
