“We seek to advance the state of the art in machine learning and AI for maximum impact. Our efforts form the glue between science and research and Facebook experiences.”

Joaquin Quiñonero Candela

“The research problems we work on are hard, and we want as many of the best minds thinking about them as possible. That’s why we collaborate closely with faculty and grad students, and publish in top journals and conferences.”

Moira Burke

“At Facebook, the bleeding edge technology you learned or invented in academia meets one of the biggest production networks in the world. The massive infrastructure improvements I deliver directly impact the lives of billions of people.”

James Zeng

“You can’t define who works at Facebook. I work with people of very different backgrounds, from all over the world, and they each have different styles of working and thinking that brings a lot of diversity to the way we think about problems.”

Marina Zannoli

“My team tackles research-level problems in our production network—at Facebook scale and speed. Connecting all the machines and applications within our network connects Facebook to billions of people around the world.”
