Life at Facebook

 

No matter what part of Facebook you join, you’ll be building something big and new. You won’t simply be finding answers; you’ll be framing questions that no one has ever asked before – and identifying unprecedented opportunities.

No one can really describe the life at Facebook better than an employee so let’s hear it from Kristina Holst (B.Sc., computer science, Columbia) former employee at Google.

“I joined Facebook so that I could make a difference. As big as Facebook is in terms of users, it’s still small in terms of engineers. There’s so much to do here. The culture was founded on small teams working together, and people spend their time building awesome things instead of spinning their wheels.

When I started at Facebook in October 2007, it was about two weeks before the launch of our brand new ads system. As the newest member of the Ads team, it felt like trying to jump onto a moving train. I started to learn about all the different pieces, and I noticed that for every person I talked to, there was a whole new set of rules to learn about building their part of the codebase.

At the time, there were no more than 30 people in the company working on backend code, but it seemed that almost everybody had their own way of doing things. Some people used Make. Some people used SCons. Some people used Automake. Nobody knew how to build other people’s code. What a nightmare!

With the Ads team looking like they had the launch under control, I started shopping around the idea of creating a common build system. Some people I talked to were skeptical and said it would never work at Facebook. Others saw the potential. We spent the next few weeks designing, prototyping, and collecting feedback, and a few weeks after that we had a fully functional set of build tools custom made for Facebook (with native Thrift integration!).

Rolling out the tools was so much easier here than it would have been almost anywhere else. There’s not a lot of baggage hanging around from old systems that everyone’s been using for 10 years. We can figure out what’s the best way to do things going forward, and then go make that happen. What we accomplished is basically taken for granted now, and that’s a good thing.

By February I was back to working on the Ads team, where I wrote a new server to improve our ads quality on the site. The server takes advantage of all the statistics we have about an ad’s past performance to better predict who will like the ad best in the future. This may sound boring to some, but I love the fact that I’ve worked on something that clearly benefits both Facebook and our users at the same time.

Now I’m moving on to the next challenge — working on core infrastructure for Facebook’s next generation backend. This one will take more than just a couple of months, but I’m excited to think about all the new engineers that will be building on top of my code in the future, and what they’ll be able to do with it.”
