Teams in Facebook london

Jul 19 10 Comments

What are some of the interesting and important tech team in Facebook London?
I know about workplace, but personally I don't find it a very interesting team to work for.
What kind of work does Oculus, AR/VR teams do? Do they hire generalist backend engineers?
What's it like to work for the infra teams?

    There are some solid infra teams. One example is scribe.

      Can you describe a bit more about the other infra teams?

      Looks like it got open sourced and then forked internally. It's a distributed streaming message bus. Everything that's sent off every host in the fleet uses scribe as it's backend.

      That's pretty cool. Unfortunately the github project was archived.
      Do you know of other infra teams in London?

      Yeah, that's what I mean forked internally. The internal version does different things to the GitHub one. London has bits of many of the core infra teams so that they're distributed across time zones. So think deployment, disaster readiness, some storage backend stuff, etc. What are you looking for?

    Wouldn’t they use Facebook for Work?

      Workplace is a reskinned Facebook with more focus on work-focused flows vs personal-focused flows.
