FB -- tips on getting product data scientist role for NYC instead of MLP office?
I'm interviewing with FB for a product data scientist role but I'm only interested in relocating to NYC. Although they advertise the position for the NYC position, it seems like this is mostly just a marketing ploy to attract applicants. Most (all?) of the positions are in Menlo Park, but the recruiter mentioned that *some* product data science positions are open in NYC... She was very vague about it, saying that they're rare, she needed to talk to her manager, that I should just get deeper into the process first, etc. etc.
Anyone have more context around this? I would love to interview for the position if I can work in the NYC office, but I don't want to just waste my time to find out at the end that MLP is the only option. If NYC is a real option, anyone know how to best navigate / negotiate this? More context on differences between NYC and SF offices in terms of teams, focus, etc. would be welcome too.
