Facebook Product Marketing Manager, Location Platform in New York, New York


Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. 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.


Whether searching for things for sale near you on Marketplace, asking for daycare recommendations in a local parenting group, sharing your estimated time of arrival when running late on Messenger or WhatsApp, or location tagging your story on Instagram – Facebook products are better when they understand where you are.

Location Platform is part of the Facebook Reality Labs organization, tasked with defining and building new products and technologies for emerging hardware and wearable devices for AR/VR, as well as Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and WhatsApp. We are looking for an experienced product marketer to come and help shape this platform and help people connect with people, places, and things in the real world.

The Product Marketing function serves as the bridge between the product team and the market — serving as the point of view of the market early in product development, and later leading the launch and adoption marketing of a new product. The person in this role will help define and launch location-powered solutions, such as helping businesses get found in searches for businesses nearby and informing new consumer products that help people stay more connected with family and friends.

This role will initiate and lead activities involved in identifying industry, market and consumer needs and opportunities, ensuring clear and differentiated positioning for all products and technology solutions, and develop compelling go-to-market strategies aimed at driving successful user adoption and growth objectives. This role requires working collaboratively with cross-functional teams including Product Management, Market Insights, User Research, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, PR, Finance, and Operations to shape product concept, definition, roadmap, and go-to-market plan aimed at delivering meaningful interactions for clearly defined and receptive audiences.

To be successful, the candidate will bring a combination of strategic vision, communication skills, collaborative mindset and hardware and/or software product launch experience, having worked in highly cross-functional, dynamic environments built to move fast, ruthlessly prioritize, and pivot quickly as needed to incubate future technologies.
