Technical Architect Data Center - Product Development & Integration

Meta is seeking an architectural professional experienced in the design and construction of critical facilities who can document/draft building concepts, coordinate with multi-disciplines, develop component design and analyze various data for use in aligning project scopes, specification guidelines, and conceptual explorations. The ideal candidate will understand the integrated nature of LEED and NetZero concepts into the basis of design. This person will join Meta’s data center engineering Product Development and Integration team. This position is full-time. Our data centers are the foundation upon which our software operates. Building and operating reliable and efficient data centers is essential to support the growth of Meta. The data center engineering team collaborates with multiple key stakeholders to ensure engineering and design of our data centers incorporate considerations from micro-levels (servers and IT equipment design requirements) to macro-levels (building envelope, site planning, MEP systems) to ensure maximum efficiency and reliability of our compute infrastructure.

A thorough understanding of the overall life cycle of design is required – from site planning to detailed concepts. The position calls for flexibility and agility in exploring and documenting novel concepts. This role requires someone who is detailed oriented, collaborative, and self-motivated with initiative to dig into and resolve potential conflict in design concepts.
