We build the next generation of data systems that help connect the world

Data is at the heart of Facebook. To allow people to connect with each other we need to store, process, and serve exabytes of data in a safe and secure manner. We innovate in areas such as data storage and indexing, query processing, data modeling, transaction processing, distributed systems, as well as novel approaches to privacy and security in data management.
