London, United Kingdom
As the importance and impact of the Meta family of companies continues to grow, so does the cybersecurity risk to the company and the likelihood that our platforms will be used to cause harm. The Meta Security Policy team is dedicated to understanding these risks and crafting policies that govern acceptable use of our platform so that we can identify and take action against those who would use our platform for malicious purposes. We are looking for a Product Policy Manager to work closely with our Director of Security Policy and our Community Defense Pillar Lead to accomplish this mission. Our team coordinates efforts across the company to identify security threats and risks to users across our family of apps and services, working with cross functional partners to mitigate and protect the community from malicious actors seeking to exploit our platforms and conducting targeted attacks on communities and individuals. As new products are developed and as the world changes around us, we help partners across the Meta family of apps and services plan for attacks by sophisticated, persistent adversaries through policy and product design that keeps people safe. Meta is rapidly expanding our core product focus into virtual reality, global internet connectivity, commerce and beyond. This role will help the company manage the risks to our users and communities that may arise in the connected Metaverse of products. This role will work closely with partners from Meta’s product teams, our content policy organization, trust and safety, privacy, integrity, human and civil rights, and beyond to anticipate adversarial behavior and craft mitigations that make the future of computing safe for individuals and society. This position will be located in our London office, and involve global travel to support our international teams.
