The Position

What You’ll Do

As a misinformation policy specialist, you’ll research, draft, and implement policies covering all aspects of misinformation and related issues impacting the integrity of conversations on Twitter — from deepfakes and synthetic media, to protecting the integrity of elections and civic processes, to combating false narratives on public health topics.

You’ll work closely with colleagues in the Site Integrity and Safety Policy teams, as well as Twitter’s Product and Engineering organizations, to craft a holistic approach to misinformation-related issues across product, policy, investigations, and enforcement. You’ll also act as the primary Trust & Safety point of contact for high-level escalations involving misinformation and lead rapid response efforts by teams across the company to prevent the virality and proliferation of abuse on  Twitter around critical public events. 

Who You Are

  • You have a proven track record of owning and successfully completing cross-functional projects from planning to implementation.

  • You have exceptional interpersonal and written communication skills.

  • You work well under pressure, and can promptly engage with new and complex problems to identify and implement solutions.

  • You effectively use data to make informed decisions

  • You are comfortable working in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment, and adapting to the needs and work styles of other teams and organizations.
