Company Description
Are you passionate about analyzing the impact of social technology and algorithms on users and society? Will you advocate for product features that reduce harm to marginalized communities? Are you a proactive, detail-oriented professional who enjoys collaborating with product, enforcement, and policy teams to advance privacy, trust, and online safety?
Job Description
Twitter is seeking an experienced, motivated, results-oriented, and highly adaptable policy expert to join our Ads Policy team to continue our mission of advocating for users’ safety and maintaining trust in Twitter Ads. If you are proactive, disciplined, collaborative, like to analyze data, to manage multiple tasks efficiently and hold fairness and consistency as top priorities in the face of complex competing interests, we’d like to speak to you!
Who We Are
The Ads Policy team works closely with Twitter’s Ad Operations, Legal, Product, Public Policy, Comms and Sales teams to advise, assist and train internal partners on various ads policy matters. The team collaborates closely with these partners around the full lifecycle of a policy - from initial legal and regulatory research, to implementation, to re-evaluation in response to incidents. Ads Policy is also responsible for partnering with Product teams to identify risks and collaborate cross-functionally, often navigating competing interests to mitigate such risks.
We innovate, experiment, and move at a fast pace. We’re a learning organisation with a growth mindset, and we’re always looking for ways to improve our policies and ourselves!
