In a recent article found in the Austin American Statesman:
Katherine Shappley, the leader of the company’s Austin operations at Facebook Austin, says she sees “immense opportunity” for Facebook to continue to grow in Central Texas. She said the company’s Austin team is busier than ever, a trend that will only continue as looks to keep growing and investing here.
Six months before the pandemic hit, Facebook had more than 1,200 employees here and Austin has grown to be Facebook’s fourth-largest hub, with more than 2,000 employees in more than 100 of its teams.
The Facebook Austin office has become something of a microcosm of the company overall, working on everything from technology geared to small businesses to emergency management tools.
