Who We Are

We care about the health, safety and wellness of the internet – you have the chance to make a real difference in the ability for the diversity of humanity to engage each other in a more compelling, supportive, and optimistic way. We’re looking for bold thinkers that look at the person to person interactions on the internet and know they have the empathy, insight and bias to action that will bring our vision of a better internet for the world to life.

Working with complex systems and deep-learning data architectures, you will have the ability to define and drive cutting edge features and products that amplify positive interactions, while interfacing with a diverse set of customers – and their end-users. Your work will celebrate what is good about the ease and ubiquity of internet socialization and community, while protecting participants in online communities from threats ranging from the relatively benign, to the most serious threats the internet exposes us to. And you’ll do it across 100 billions of interactions a month on many of the most famous communities on earth.
