Job Description

At Facebook, we have established a new team exploring different ways to leverage blockchain technology to improve the lives of people around the world. It's a small, fast-growing, and talented group of people and our experienced leadership team comprised of some of the best professionals in their respective fields. The blockchain team is a startup within Facebook and we're exploring lots of areas of interest across all facets of blockchain technology. Our ultimate goal is to help billions of people with access to things they don't have now - that could be things like healthcare, equitable financial services, or new ways to save or share information.

This individual will work on proactively understanding the global threat landscape as it manifests on our products and help guide responses to these threats.

The ideal candidate will have an investigative background, with experience in quantitative and technical fields, and data-driven decision making. Highly qualified candidates will possess a professional understanding of security risk and geopolitical issues, and will have worked at a multinational company. It is important that candidates be results-oriented self starters.
