“As an engineering manager for WhatsApp’s Android team, I support engineers who work on the app’s consumer features, like chat and groups. Knowing we make it possible for people to communicate when they don’t have access to an expensive smartphone or solid network connection is incredibly motivating. Whether it’s helping families connect in different countries or reach their loved ones during a crisis, we’re solving problems for people all over the world. Outside of the impactful work my team is doing, I’m passionate about empowering fellow women in the industry. This is a very important matter to me as I've seen first hand what an unwelcoming and unfriendly environment can look like for women looking to pursue a career in tech. Coming to WhatsApp I was empowered to grow and further my career. In less than a year I began the transition to a management role. I credit conversations with my managers for helping me achieve my goal, and hope that other women in the space can do the same. Facebook is a place where you can have a lot of freedom to explore anything you’re interested in, and I encourage my colleagues to own their successes, say, ‘yes, I can,’ and go for it.” — Raluca-Elena P., Engineering Manager, WhatsApp

“Before I joined WhatsApp, I spent two years working in the Peace Corps in Paraguay as a Community Economic Development volunteer. Part of my job included teaching IT skills and business skills to local residents. Over the course of those two years, I saw first-hand how WhatsApp went from being an app nobody had heard of to being the main platform for communication in Paraguay. People used it for everything — from connecting with their families, to interacting with local businesses.⁣ ⁣ So naturally, when I came back to the US and ran into an old colleague who was working at WhatsApp, I expressed my interest in joining the team. Three and a half years later, I’m now a software engineering manager on WhatsApp’s Android team, and I continue to be amazed by the impact and value of what we are doing. I’m one of six , and before I started our family WhatsApp group, we had a hard time staying in touch with each other. Now I get to see photos of my nieces and nephews every few days and share special moments with my siblings. We’re all spread out across the country, but WhatsApp is shrinking those distances. Every day, I feel energized by the opportunity to build a product that not only impacts me personally, but also helps over one billion people around the world stay connected.” — Jon S., Software Engineering Manager, WhatsApp


“I’m not a typical engineer. I didn’t go to an Ivy League school, and I didn’t have a path laid out for me as a kid. I didn’t even know what computer engineering was until I went to college. Instead, I started off as a psychology major. I was pretty good at math and science, so I decided to look into programming and signed up for a few introductory classes. While I loved the work, I didn’t feel like I was learning fast enough, so I started watching YouTube videos about programming, and I realized the best way for me to get the coding experience I needed was to build something. I built my first Android app, a productivity app called Taskly in 2013. Today, I’m a software engineer at WhatsApp. I joined because I'm passionate about my team’s focus on connecting people who don’t have the luxury of high-speed internet and technology. I’ve been here for about a year and half now, and I'm excited for the next challenge. I'm moving to London on a one-year assignment with WhatsApp to help build an entirely new product from the ground up. For me, the most important thing is that I'm constantly learning. I'm excited for the opportunity to grow both culturally and professionally in a new location—and Facebook has made the transition super easy. I want people to know you don’t have to come from a certain background or look a certain way to be at Facebook—you just have to be curious and you have to be prepared to work hard.” —Wayne Jackson, Software Engineer, WhatsApp

Meet Alisa K., Product Designer at WhatsApp. She designed Salty, a fun genderless sticker pack to help people express their true feelings when words fall short. She was inspired by her friends' reactions, as well as her own emotions. Read her story here: “I always knew I was supposed to be in the creative industry, but growing up in Ukraine it was a very niche career, and most designers were self-taught. Thankfully, the owner of a small design agency in my hometown gave me a chance, and jumpstarted my career in design. I've worked at WhatsApp for almost a decade, focusing on keeping the experience simple, reliable and secure for over 1.5 billion users around the world. A fun product I recently worked on was my first sticker pack, called Salty. I build products because I can be creative, do what I love, and produce something meaningful at the same time. At WhatsApp, we never sacrifice quality for quantity, and we design and build things in the most intuitive and reliable way possible. We have a great responsibility to provide an essential service to one-fifth of the world population. I'm hoping my story can inspire other women to start doing something they've always wanted to do with their life.” — Alisa K., Product Designer, WhatsApp IWD2019
