Who We Are:

We are the Health team at Twitter and our goal and priorities are to make Twitter safer for our customers and ensure the information shared is of the highest quality. This includes crafting innovative solutions around misinformation, civic integrity, toxicity, abuse, spam, and more. It also means helping people understand our rules and when we enforce them and why and improving the experience for when people report unhealthy content, and when they are suspended on the platform.

We are looking for a staff level designer to help build out the vision for what a healthy Twitter will look like. This includes concepting new controls / tools to help people safeguard themselves and have more control over their Twitter Experience - especially when it gets toxic or abusive or polarizing.

It includes developing new concepts for how we approach misleading information on the platform.  We are looking for a deep thinker who love to solve complex problems to drive creative solutions in this space and craft holistic experiences that begin to make the Twitterverse healthier. Our design team works closely with our product, engineering, research, and policy teams in shaping the strategy and execution of this top priority.

 

Background:

Twitter can be fun, noisy, informative and a place for rich dialogue. Twitter can also feel and be unhealthy. It’s too often that people are afraid to participate in conversations because they fear abuse and unhealthy interactions. Additionally, it is difficult for people to determine which accounts are trustworthy and what content is good. These challenges are the basis for why Health has been the top initiative for Twitter. When we add in the current national and global conversation, with the COVID pandemic, civil unrest spawning from George Floyd and the BLM protests, and the discourse around the upcoming US Elections, we know that making the Twitterverse healthier is not only a top initiative, but it is imperative.

  • Design, prototype, and develop elegant solutions focused on improving the health of the platform.

  • Conceive innovative concepts, prototype and iterate to push the boundaries of user interface design and the health space.
