Are you passionate about delivering value, operational improvements, and analytical insights to drive innovation? Do you enjoy improving systems, creating efficiencies, and designing solutions that let people focus on interesting work? Have you completed complex, multi-disciplinary projects in these or similar areas: business process redesign, program management, metrics-based strategy, or data quality? If so, you should join us!
Who We Are
The teams in Twitter’s Trust & Safety (T&S) department are on the front lines of safety, speech, and policy issues that affect the Internet. We work to ensure user trust, protect user rights, and mitigate legal risk through policy definition, Terms of Service enforcement, and safety advocacy. We innovate, experiment, and move at a fast pace. We’re a learning organization with a growth mindset, and we’re always looking for ways to improve our policies and ourselves.
What You'll Do
As a Program Manager for T&S Systems and Tools, you are responsible for strengthening T&S’ relationships with the engineering teams that build and maintain the tools and systems we use in our daily work. You’ll plan ahead, design and scope solutions, ensure adequate testing, and help deploy improvements to our tools. You’ll ensure that the needs of our international teams are well-represented.
- Develop and update the roadmap for T&S’ tools by helping policy teams prioritize needs and pin down requirements.
- Flesh out system and tooling needs that are as yet unmet and write the business case to justify investing in new solutions.
- Anticipate management and transparency reporting data needs and work with policy managers and stakeholders to include these in requirements specifications.
- Exploit opportunities to boost team efficiencies, standardize workflows, and improve the structure and quality of data.
- Update the tooling roadmap to reflect business and environmental changes, whether these be internal (e.g., new or improved Twitter features and products) or external (e.g., new regulatory requirements).
- Ensure that our systems comply with the company’s security and access policies, such as the use of access restrictions and audit trails.
- Shepherd the user acceptance testing of systems and tools prior to deployment.
- Track and resolve open system issues in a timely manner.
- Manage expectations and communicate the priorities, status, and progress of projects to stakeholders.
