Facebook is one of the most widely used websites in the world, which means it takes an army of designers, engineers, managers, and more to make sure everything is running smoothly.
And over the past several years, Facebook has grown into more than just a social networking platform. It’s dipped its toes into virtual reality, mobile commerce, and more, which is why it’s always looking for fresh talent.
Using data from Glassdoor, we compiled a list of the highest salaries you can earn while working at Facebook, ranked from lowest to highest.
(Note: Some positions listed on Glassdoor were excluded because there weren’t enough shared salaries. Each average salary included in this roundup has about 10 reviews. Each salary reflects the base pay without bonuses. This is an update of a post originally written by Matt Lynley and Karyne Levy).
The way Facebook looks and how easy it is to use are a crucial part of the experience for users. Apparently, the interview process for this role can be very thorough -- one candidate writing on Glassdoor said he or she had to take an eight-hour test before receiving a job offer.
Facebook's development cycle is fast, and it needs software engineers that can keep up. The company says on its careers page that it's common to have code live on Facebook just days after it's written. At other companies, this could usually take months.
Product managers make everything come together at Facebook. They package a product built from multiple teams and make sure it gets shipped on time.
Given the breakneck speed at which Facebook delivers most of its products, these guys are absolutely critical.
Engineering managers are tasked with building and managing a team of engineers for a specific product -- like data analytics of the Facebook platform. They're expected to have a little more problem-solving juice than your typical software engineer.
