Facebook has been successfully running their Return to Work Programme in more than 10 cities across the US and is now expanding into Europe. Their 16-week immersive program designed for those who have left the workforce for 2 years or longer and are looking to re-enter the workforce. At the end of the term, those who have demonstrated their abilities to succeed and have an impact at Facebook will be considered for a permanent position.
Roles available (updated 16 Nov 2020)
Production Engineer, Dublin/London – Production Engineers at Facebook are hybrid software/systems engineers who ensure that Facebook’s services run smoothly and have the capacity for future growth. They are embedded in every one of Facebook’s product and infrastructure teams, and are core participants in every significant engineering effort underway in the company. The team is comprised of varying levels of experience and backgrounds, from new grads to industry veterans. Relevant industry experience is important (Site Reliability Engineer (SRE), Systems Engineer, Software Engineer, DevOps Engineer, Network Engineer, Systems Administrator, Linux Administrator, Database Administrator or similar role), but ultimately less so than your demonstrated abilities and attitude. They sail into uncharted waters every day at Facebook in Production Engineering, and they are always learning.

Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. So far, they’ve connected more than 3 billion people—which means they still have more than 4 billion to go. The scale and complexity of their work are unprecedented, and the work they do makes a real difference in the lives of people around the world.
To bring the world closer together, diversity is a must-have for Facebook, not an option. Hiring people with different backgrounds and experiences helps them build better products, make better decisions and better serve their clients. Facebook is committed to building a workforce that’s as diverse as the communities they serve, and strive to provide the best possible care and resources to help all of their employees thrive—at work, in their personal life and across every life stage. You can find out more about their commitment to diversity here.
