Company Description
Twitter is what’s happening and what people are talking about right now. For us, life's not about a job, it's about purpose. We believe real change starts with conversation. Here, your voice matters. Come as you are and together we'll do what's right (not what's easy) to serve the public conversation.
Job Description

The Conversations Data Science team designs metrics, performs analyses, and runs experiments to better understand the public conversation happening on Twitter.

As a data science manager, you build cohesive, high-functioning teams that thrive in a culture of trust, respect, and inclusion.

You have the technical capacity to partner with tech leads and are comfortable diving into the fray to help drive resolutions to challenges that your team encounters.
You take responsibility for the group’s short-term and long-term strategy, define the team's roadmap, success metrics, and priorities in close collaboration with multi-functional partners and inspire your team to independently do the same.
