Data Science Manager, Community Integrity - Objectionable Content

We are looking for a Data Science Manager who is passionate about helping us fight the bad guys and protect the FB and IG communities. The Community Integrity team focuses on detecting and mitigating high-intensity experiences ranging from terrorism and child exploitation to hate speech and pornography. We also strive to build legitimacy with the broader community by acting with fairness and transparency. This involves building artificial intelligence to detect violations at scale, as well as tools to maximize the accuracy and efficiency of our reps who review suspected violations so we can achieve optimal outcomes.

Community Integrity Focus: Community Integrity's mission is to minimize bad experiences for the over 2.5 billion+ people on FB and IG. Specifically, we are in charge of enforcing Community Standards: a set of policies intended to keep the community safe from violations such as spam, financial scams, hate speech, and bullying. Our job is to quickly detect and remove violating content and abusive accounts, as well as identify ways to minimize future attacks. We are focused on two key metrics: prevalence of bad experiences and false positives.

Real world impact on over 2.5 billion+ people - or at least the hundreds of who encounter bad experiences.
This role is key to keeping the platform healthy and engaged - if we don't do this successfully, FB and IG will be riddled with objectionable content and people will disengage or stop coming entirely.
Growth organization culture - the team is known for making data-driven decisions with extreme focus. It's a great place to have an impact.
Inflection point - this is a good time to join the team. We have M-team attention. We have cross-functional org alignment and high-level alignment objectives and goals, but are still exploring major strategic shifts and new technology paradigms.
Global - tackle problems across the globe.
Intellectually challenging - areas such as hate speech are nuanced, require careful consideration of fairness and over-reach.
Passionate team - attracts people who care.
