Machine Learning Engineer – Health ML – San Francisco, CA

Machine Learning Engineer – Health ML

The Health ML engineering team is responsible for building scalable detection systems that keep spam, manipulation, and abuse at bay. We use ML and relevance techniques to make Twitter safer and to limit the spread of misinformation on the platform. Our team works across the product to detect abusive and spammy users and content, increase action on bad actors, drive changes in user behavior, and detect and remediate accounts that are violating the terms of service on Twitter.

We develop, maintain, and contribute to several machine learning models and systems, including

  • Models that detect unwanted interactions
  • Models to prioritize human review of accounts violating Twitter’s policies to more quickly take action and limit their damage
  • Detection of bots that misuse the platform or spread misinformation
  • Detection of repeat abusive offenders who create new accounts after being suspended
  • Real-time rule engines and clustering systems to identify and action on clusters of bad actors at scale

You will participate in the engineering life-cycle at Twitter, including designing distributed systems, writing production code and data pipelines, conducting code reviews and working alongside our infrastructure and reliability teams. You’ll apply data science, machine learning, and/or graph analysis techniques to a variety of modeling and relevance problems involving users, their social graph, their tweets, and their behavior.
