Company Description

Twitter serves the public conversation by encouraging people all over the world to connect, learn, debate, and solve problems together. We believe conversation can change the world, and that’s why Tweeps (that’s what we call Twitter employees) come to work every day.

Job Description

Defending the health and integrity of the public conversation is Twitter’s top priority.

As a data science manager you build cohesive, high-functioning teams that thrive in a culture of trust, respect, and inclusion. You balance autonomy with guidance by giving your team the tools, context, confidence, and motivation to make decisions effectively and independently. You have the technical capacity to partner with tech leads and are comfortable diving into the fray to help drive resolutions in the case of bad incidents. 

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.
