Facebook's mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. Through our family of apps and services, we're building a different kind of company that connects billions of people around the world, gives them ways to share what matters most to them, and helps bring people closer together. Whether we're creating new products or helping a small business expand its reach, people at Facebook are builders at heart. Our global teams are constantly iterating, solving problems, and working together to empower people around the world to build community and connect in meaningful ways. Together, we can help people build stronger communities - we're just getting started.

The Instagram Well-being organization is working on ensuring that Instagram is a positive force in people’s lives. This is the most important job we have over the next few years at Instagram. We want to make sure that people feel safe and supported when connecting with the people and things they love, and that people feel the freedom to express themselves on the platform. To do this, we build large-scale complex systems, state-of-the-art Machine Learning, and operate an infrastructure to enable detection, classification, and remediation of content, behaviors, and bad actors that contribute to bad experiences for our community. To complement our existing efforts that ensure a safe, supported and trusted environment for our users, we are building a full-time product team focused on Equity & Inclusion with the mission of creating the most equitable experience for our global communities on Instagram. While we’ve had multiple efforts in this area across both Instagram and Facebook, we’re forming this new dedicated team within Instagram in order to help centralize and accelerate our progress in this critical space. The recent racial justice movement is a moment of real significance for our company and we want to ensure we prevent any bias in our systems, products and policies as it runs counter to providing a platform for everyone to express themselves.

At the heart of the Instagram Well-being organization is the data science team whose empirical studies and rigorous analyses shape the direction of Well-being product development, striving to protect Instagram users and their data and enables seamless development of safe and supportive products. The Data Science Manager, Instagram Well-Being (Equity & Inclusion), will lead the data science team focused on projects that help make Instagram an equitable product for everyone. This leader will help develop the measurement strategy, drive execution and collaboration across Instagram and Facebook teams to develop better features, frameworks, tools and systems to support equity in our product. Additionally, they’ll drive collaboration and programs across Instagram Data Science teams to leverage those methodologies. The leader will do this by creating a number of tools and services and deciding the right metrics to track, measurement/testing to establish, predictions to build, and data automation to drive to help us know whether or not we are meeting our mission to be a positive force in the world.

We are looking for hands-on problem solvers with a strong ability to lead through influence and build organizations. You will work in close partnership with a top-notch group of researchers and data scientists across Facebook, Inc. to translate user research and guidance from technical experts into data-driven product strategies.
