I enjoyed the Facebook party last night at their new Seattle digs. It was fun chatting with all the engineers and especially their VP of engineering, Mike Schroepfer. It’s interesting how open the big tech companies are about their systems. There are certainly plenty of things that are off limits, but in general the Facebook crew was very cool about discussing their infrastructure and technologies.
Would it be a cool place to work? Definitely. They’ve got a great product and enthusiastic employees. Perks include: three catered meals per day, laundry service, and a fantastic view of Elliott Bay.
