Sourcing is a core strategic driver of Facebook’s success in order to drive scale. The Technical Sourcer works closely with our Recruiters and hiring managers to develop strategies to find candidates for our GPS Organization (Global Product and SWE). The Technical Sourcer could work on the following teams for SWE: Machine Learning, Mobile, Leadership, General Software Engineering, Diversity or the following teams for Product: Product Design, Product Marketing, Data Science, Data Engineering, Content Strategy, Product Management, UX/UI, User Research, Diversity, M&A, Technical Product Management, Leadership, and Growth & Analytics . We conceive practical and creative ways to surface talent, and we invest a lot of time activating passive candidates through a highly engaged approach. We’re passionate about delivering an awesome candidate experience, and that starts with the first conversation a candidate has with us, which is more often than not with a member of our Sourcing team. We’re seeking a dynamic Sourcer who brings a level of motivation, curiosity and scrappiness to our team. As a member of our team, you will be responsible for building and cultivating talent pipelines for our hiring needs and will be instrumental in our ability to scale our business, working towards our mission to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. More broadly, the chosen candidate will work with a diverse and highly interdisciplinary team of researchers and engineers and will have access to cutting edge technology, resources, and testing facilities. Facebook Recruiting is devoted to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer.
