Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities — we're just getting started.

Facebook's security teams are focused on protecting the information that people entrust with us and the systems that help the company deliver on its mission. The organization collaborates with teams across the company, from engineering to security to legal and policy, to build software that provides these protections. The org's challenges span the gamut of security and privacy. We help keep your friends and family's data safe. 

Our Insider Threat Detection & Incident Response team is focused on our mission of discovering and mitigating internal threats to Facebook data and systems. The team identifies malicious use of otherwise legitimate access to data from people inside the company and responds before damage is done. We investigate across a broad spectrum of threats and abuse including abuse of user data, intellectual property, and leaks of sensitive information. We collaborate with software engineering teams to build advanced detection capabilities and understand how abuse happens so that we can stay ahead of those who are interested in misusing their access. 

The Insider Threat Detection & Incident Response team is looking for a leader to help drive our mission by providing technical leadership and supporting the members of the team who make the mission a reality.
