Network Delivery Engineering at Facebook is primarily focused on enabling the Network Infrastructure team to build our extensive global network including our Data Centers, Backbone, Fiber Infrastructure, and Edge Networks. We do this by building software platforms and frameworks, automated pipelines, easy-to-use tools and UIs, and focusing on overall reliability of the ecosystem.As a part of the Network Delivery Integration team, you will be solving business problems by leveraging our technology and data analytics. One way this is achieved is through connecting various systems together into an end-to-end pipeline to enable efficient, predictable, transparent, and reliable network delivery and operation. Another way this is achieved is by identifying and adapting existing systems to networking use-cases in areas such as modeling, design, configuration, and monitoring. Many of these systems are owned by the Network Delivery Systems team that we partner very closely with.The work on this team has a consulting nature to it; we are connecting people and teams together to ultimately make the lives of the people involved in delivering our network easier.
