I’ll be interning at Facebook this summer

šŸŽ‰ Whoopee! I’m super happy to share that I’ll be interning this summer as a Software Engineer at Facebook London.

After a long process of interviewing with dozens of companies including Microsoft, Google, Bloomberg, Yelp, Amazon, and a dozen others, I have accepted Facebook’s offer to join their Infrastructure team in London as a Sofware Engineering Intern.

The journey to get here was difficult, full of ups and downs, and esp. failures, but it was definitely worth it.

What’s so special?

The special thing about this internship is the kind of role I’ll be in and the things I will be working on. Let me explain.

To be more specific, I’ll be interning as a Production Engineer. Production Engineers are a hybrid between software engineers and system engineers. This is what’s so special about this internship and why I chose it.

I’ll get to work on stuff that is super cool and appealing to me. This internship is all about Linux, networking (TCP/IP), internet service architectures (such as load balancing), and back-end APIs.

Just to give an insight into the things I’ll be working on:

  • Own back-end services like Hadoop data warehouses, front-end services like Chat and Newsfeed, infrastructure components like our Memcached infrastructure, and everything in between
  • Write and review code, develop documentation, and debug the hardest problems, live, on some of the largest and most complex systems in the world

Am I Excited?

This is me, haha.

Definitely! I’m coming, FACEBOOK. šŸ» Here’s to an exciting journey ahead full of learning, growth, fun, and Linux, haha.

Update: My internship for this summer was canceled and deferred to next summer due to the pandemic. No, I’m not upset. šŸ˜€ I’ll use this time to work on other interesting stuff, and definitely excited to join Facebook in June 2021.
