The Position

Who We Are

The teams in Twitter’s Trust & Safety department are on the front lines of safety, expression, 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.

  • Become well-versed in our child safety policies and be able to represent the team with partner departments including Legal, Public Policy, Twitter Service, and Communications in the Americas, and create opportunities for your team members to do the same. 

You will report directly to the Global Head of Site Policy and closely collaborate with Site Policy leadership globally. This is a full-time position.
