Company Updates

  • “Before moving to Ireland, I worked for a company in India as a Systems Engineer. While working as a subcontractor with Facebook on a project, I got the opportunity to join the team at Facebook Clonee as a Controls Engineer. I loved my career, so the offer was very exciting. But I felt nervous about leaving my family and friends to move to a new country. I also wondered if I’d fit in with my new colleagues. Almost immediately, I realized these worries were unfounded. In my role, the focus is on providing a safe and sustainable environment to store the systems data across Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp, so people can stay connected. The biggest surprise has been the collaborative and open culture at Facebook. My new coworkers gave me a voice, and I feel comfortable asking teammates, including my manager, anything. They have been supportive and give me a sense of belonging. If you are given the opportunity to take a job in another country, don’t give it a second thought. Go for it! With teammates like mine, anyone can make it work.” —Shivanki J., Data Center Controls Engineer
