Facebook is looking for an analytical thinker with experience in policy, law, business operations, or government to join our Content Policy team. The team’s mission is to create and communicate rules for how our products may be used by people on Facebook and its family of applications.
As a Content Policy team member, you will work closely with a number of other teams at Facebook and Instagram, including our Community Operations, Product, Legal, Communications, and Public Policy teams. You will play a key role in developing, applying, and communicating our Community Standards both internally and externally. You will also manage high-profile content escalations.
