Facebook Austin has more than 60 employees right now and it is actively hiring, you can check some of the various openings in their Austin jobs page.

  1. This is awesome! I already applied for a job in their career page, I hope I am one of the 140 people they are planning on hiring within the next year or so.

  2. Facebook opens an office in “Silicon Hills” and it is a sales office … this was very disappointing news the first time I heard it. Why no tech jobs I wonder.

    1. Yes it is a little disappointing that the office in Austin is only for sales and support. However, it is a start and this definitely puts Austin in the map.
