Job description

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.

Facebook is partnering with ISPs (Internet Service Providers) and MNOs (Mobile Network Operators) in developing countries (currently India and countries in Africa) to deploy this solution. Hyper-local retailers are driving the on-the-ground sales efforts.
