Product Manager - Developer Platform Privacy & Data Protection
San Francisco, CA
Twitter is seeking a product manager to lead the creation of new and innovative solutions that will continue to keep people and their data safe as we build the future of the Twitter developer platform.
The Twitter API has been used by millions of developers to build integrations with Twitter, from "hello world" apps in classroom settings to the most-used consumer and business products in the world. If you're interested in this opportunity, there's a good chance you've used it before too.
We believe the Twitter API plays an essential role in Twitter's future, and it's therefore critical that we remain at the cutting edge of protecting our users' privacy and data in every aspect of how we build our products. Your job will be to obsess about this challenge, stay up to date with the latest technology and trends, and build the solutions that make the Twitter API a best-in-class example of security, privacy & data protection.
Who We Are
You'll join an established team of product managers and a wider cross-functional team that is responsible for Twitter's developer platform, including our public Twitter API and our enterprise data licensing business. The team includes engineering, design, user research, developer relations, developer marketing, sales & partnerships, as well as key partners in policy, legal and comms. You'll work with senior leaders across Twitter to shape our strategy & products for external developers.
What You'll Do
You'll develop a deep understanding of the needs and challenges facing the diverse set of developers who build on the Twitter API today. You'll work with experts across the company to understand the set of ethical & regulatory considerations that define Twitter's commitments in this area. Working from that understanding, you'll lead teams to build the solutions that make the Twitter API a best-in-class example of security, privacy & data protection.
Your goal will be to keep our users and their data safe as we grow the number of developers who find success building on our platform..
