I’ll be joining Facebook this summer

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

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 Engineer.

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 he 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 a Production Engineer. Production Engineers are a hybrid between software engineers and system engineers.

I’ll get to work on stuff that is super cool and appealing to me. It’s 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 offer 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.
