“Engineering managers must have the ability to build teams and bring diverse groups of people together to work on ideas that move us towards realizing our company mission.” ~ Surupa B, engineering manager
Facebook engineering managers build high-performing teams where engineers feel like their work is having the biggest impact of their careers. Each manager sets direction, supports people in their career growth, and ensures that their teams have inspiring visions for the future. The engineering teams at Facebook work on a spectrum of efforts, including data infrastructure, which helps power Facebook, and product engineering, which ships Facebook's myriad of products to its community of 2 billion people.

Close Collaboration

Engineering managers describe their teams as “families” who lean on each other to ideate and collaborate. Engineering managers lead small teams that collaborate closely with cross functions across the company. Establishing goals together is an important part of the process, and engineering managers work cyclically with their teams to ensure that they're all working towards the same goal together.
