Meta builds technologies that help people connect, find communities, and grow businesses. When Facebook launched in 2004, it changed the way people connect. Apps like Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp further empowered billions around the world. Now, Meta is moving beyond 2D screens toward immersive experiences like augmented and virtual reality to help build the next evolution in social technology.

We want to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. To do that, we ask that you help create a safe and respectful online space.

Meta has adapted to a new era of flexible work and gives employees autonomy to manage their work / life balance. In many roles, employees can choose between working remotely, working at a Meta office, or a combination of both. 

Meta have also recently embraced a 'Work From Anywhere' option, although it's still limited with employees able to work from another location where they have work authorisation for up to 20 days. 

What we love about Meta:

💡 Meta allow employees to relocate to other regions seamlessly 

💡Many roles have become remote first, with the option to visit an office if it suits the employee 

Articles about Meta:

💡Meta embraces 'work from anywhere' ahead of return to office

💡Meta turns to remote work as it expands across Europe 

Flexible Working Approach

For most people who are full-time employees of Meta, scenarios such as these will be long-term possibilities. On June 9, 2021, the company shared with employees details about what’s next for our remote-work policies, employee flexibility, office reopenings, and more. These updates reflect our collaborative, long-term approach to building our plans for the future of work at Meta, focusing not just on offering flexibility but also on helping every employee and team be successful.

Here’s what these updates could mean for you if you choose to join us here at Meta and help build the technologies and programs that make it possible for people around the world to build community.

The future of work at Meta

Expanding remote work: As of June 15, 2021, Meta is opening up remote work to all levels across the company. Anyone whose role can be done remotely can request remote work.

Flexibility: Meta’s offices will be more flexible for those expected to return—guidance for employees is to spend at least half their time in the office.

Office re-openings: The company is on track to open most of its US offices at 50% capacity by early September, and likely reopening fully in October. The company has several offices already open in our Europe, Middle East, and Africa region and our Asia-Pacific region, and we hope to open more in those regions at 50% capacity towards the end of 2021—we’ll continue to track our Latin America region. If you’re working with a Meta recruiter, they will keep you up to date on the format and schedule of your interviews. 

2021 Global travel days: Through the rest of 2021, for personal travel, Meta employees can use a total of 20 business days to work from another location where they have work authorization.

Working remotely from another country: For people interested in relocating across borders, Meta is expanding remote work across international borders gradually. As of June 15, for all roles and orgs with an aligned location strategy, Meta will support remote work opportunities in the Americas moving from the US to Canada, and in our Europe, Middle East, and Africa region (EMEA) moving from anywhere to the UK. In January 2022, employees will have the opportunity to permanently move between seven more countries in EMEA where Meta has the highest employee demand and is able to operate. 

Expanding flexibility is a big step, and we will learn and make adjustments as needed to best support the health of the community, teams and individuals working here.

Flexi-Time: This is a working schedule that allows employees to choose when they start and end their workday, usually to accomodate an individuals needs and other commitments outside of work.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Full-time: A full-time employee works between 35 and 40 hours per week, usually on a permanent contract.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
Shared Parental Leave: This allows parents to share a portion of leave and pay with their partners to care for children from birth, usually until their first birthday.
