Location pin icon
Business Integrity's mission is to ensure trustworthy connections between people and businesses. In Business Integrity, we target some of the most critical issues facing our company, from election interference and user privacy, to coordinated networks of bad actors impacting the billions of people who use our products. Our team protects users and businesses by proactively identifying potential threats to our platforms, investigating bad actors operating across our business surfaces, and leveraging investigative findings and adversarial understanding to scale protections and mitigate vulnerabilities in our products. In an average week, our investigators may create new systems to leverage off-platform data to identify large networks of bad actors, investigate how a new particularly advanced group of actors are exploiting our systems, or lead red cell analyses and risk assessments for new products or features. The ideal candidate will be an innovative self-starter, who is motivated by our mission, is results-driven, and will be able to extract, assimilate, and correlate a wide variety of data in order to surface and disrupt sophisticated actors.
