Who We Are

 Health ML team is responsible for building scalable detection and remediation systems that help identify and mitigate abuse and misinformation on the platform. Our team's mission is to keep our users safe from negative experiences in a highly adversarial environment.

  • Build cohesive, high-functioning teams that thrive in a culture of trust, respect, and inclusion.
  • Balance autonomy with guidance by giving your teams the tools, context, confidence, and motivation to make decisions effectively and independently.
  • Have the technical capacity to partner with tech leads and be comfortable diving into the fray to help drive resolution in the case of bad incidents.
  • 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 other engineering teams and multi-functional partners. Maintain a balance between building sustainable, high-impact projects and shipping things quickly.
  • Own your team’s deliverables and ensure we continue to ship scalable, highly-available products that delight our users and customers.
  • Initiate collaboration across Engineering, Product, Design, Research, User Services, Trust & Safety, Legal, and Comms to develop high quality end-to-end user experiences and inspire your team to independently do the same.
  • Work closely with the Twitter recruiting team to hire high-potential candidates from diverse backgrounds.
