Solutions Engineers at Facebook spend roughly half their time working with product engineering teams and writing production code. The other half of their time is spent working directly with partners to develop and execute their Facebook technology strategy.
We find that this setup is great for engineers that want to spend more time on the business side of things or have more people interaction while still being hands on with code.
This allows large advertisers to work directly with people at Facebook that have a knowledge of the ads codebase, and Solutions Engineers can implement great suggestions made by partners.
More about the role is available at https://www.facebook.com/careers/life/solutions-engineering-... .
Facebook | Solutions Engineering Manager | Menlo Park, NYC, Berlin | Onsite
We also have some great opportunities for engineering managers that would like to support a team in Menlo Park, NYC, or Berlin. You would support a distributed team, so some travel would be required.
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
You can find the job listings at https://www.facebook.com/careers/teams/engineering/ , under “Solutions Engineering”.

Jane Street is a quantitative trading firm with a focus on technology, a scientific approach, and a deep understanding of the markets. We are a global liquidity provider and market maker, operating around the clock and around the globe, employing over 500 people in our offices in New York, London and Hong Kong.
It’s no secret that we’re big believers in functional programming; OCaml, a statically typed functional language, is our primary development platform. Jane Street’s technology group is small by design, which means we need to maximize the productivity of each person we hire. We believe functional programming (and specifically, OCaml) helps us do that. But it’s not about productivity alone: programming in a rich and expressive language like OCaml is just more fun. We’re also happy to spend time and money on making it easier for the people here to get things done. This ranges from big projects, like the work we do on development tools (e.g. Iron, our in-house code review and release management system, and Merlin, a tool for providing IDE-like features for OCaml), to little touches, like getting people whatever crazy keyboard will help them get their work done most comfortably.
Want to see some of our code? Visit Open Source @ Jane Street (https://janestreet.github.io/), where you'll find several OCaml libraries that we've released into the wild. These form the basis for all of our software, and we hope they make life better for some non-Jane-Street OCaml developers as well.
If you're not yet convinced, feel free to poke around our benefits page (https://www.janestreet.com/culture/benefits/). If you ARE convinced and want some insight into our interview process, check out https://blogs.janestreet.com/interviewing-at-jane-street/. Or just drop us a resume at https://www.janestreet.com/join-jane-street/apply/.
We’re looking for people with:
- Top-notch programming skills (no OCaml or FP experience necessary!)
- Strong interpersonal skills. Most work at Jane Street is highly collaborative,
and we are looking for people who can work effectively in small, close-knit
- Deep experience with — and love for — technology. There’s no specific
checklist; we use software to approach a variety of problems, so we’re
interested in everything from low latency networking to systems
administration to programming language design.
