In late 2004, her brother Mark Zuckerberg asked Randi Zuckerberg to join him at his startup Facebook, which he said was understaffed with people willing to travel and who could explain his vision. Randi Zuckerberg took a position which required relocation and a cut in pay but with stock options. Randi has stated that she initially thought this was a temporary position which might last six months. Once there in Silicon Valley and part of the innovation driven community, however, she became fascinated with the possibilities and remained ten years.

On the evening of November 2, 2010, Zuckerberg worked at a "town hall" assembled by ABC News as part of its television coverage of the U.S. national midterm elections. The seven-hour event was webcast in its entirety, on both Facebook and the ABC website.
In August 2011, Zuckerberg resigned from Facebook and announced her new social media firm, named "Zuckerberg Media". Since starting Zuckerberg Media, Randi has produced shows and digital content for BeachMint, the Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, the United Nations, Condé Nast and Bravo.
