I have 2yoe as a data scientist at a tech MNC. I applied to Facebook for data scientist infrastructure role, but they've moved me to analytics team. I want to know which team (infrastructure vs analytics) does more ML work?
Any insights on kind of work would be helpful.

      Data scientist infrastructure is in the engineering department, that is where ML happens.

      Data scientist analytics is in the product department. ML does not happen there.

      If you have more of a business background and really enjoy SQL and answering important product questions, then data scientist analytics will be a great fit.

    Data Scientist, Analytics at FB doesn't do ML, not even close.
