Hey everyone, what is the expected base salary and TC for DS,A role at FB? I’m confused because the description looks more like a data analyst role so I’m not sure if me looking at data scientist salaries on Glassdoor is accurate.

    Data scientist title in Facebook is equivalent to data analyst title in other companies I’ve heard. Their real data scientists are called ML engineer or Research engineer or something or rather.

      Generally not true but might be true for some teams. Data science is part of many teams. Generally data science in product has wide latitude and a fair bit of ownership - which leads to a wide spectrum of technical expertise and ownership choices. Data Scientists in core data science have more technical background.

      Is the interview process equivalent to a data analyst as well then? Or is it the old bait and switch where it’s legit interview and you are anticipating real DS then you show up and write 800 sql queries in the first month

      I’m not quite sure if you read the post. I know FB pays well but would they really pay a “data analyst” the same base salary as an SWE?
