If you’ve always wanted to work at Facebook, now might be your chance.

Coming on the heels of Mark Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan’s announcement that they will be giving away 99 percent of their Facebook shares to charity, the social networking service told BostInno it would be hiring a wave of new staffers at its newly expanded Cambridge offices.

Though Facebook would not say how many employees currently work at the Cambridge office, located in the One Broadway building in Kendall Square, the head of engineers at the local branch office said the company planned to ramp up hiring in the near future, with a goal of roughly 50 employees by year’s end. This growth would continue into 2016, BostInno reports.

The Kendall Square office, which focuses on infrastructure engineering like networking, storage, and security, has undergone several rounds of construction over the past couple years to better accommodate the growing staff.
