The Instagram Well-being organization is working on ensuring that Instagram is
a positive force in people s life, 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. A core part of
delivering on that, is making sure that people are safe from harm when they use
Instagram, feel supported by Instagram when they need it, and are enabled to
support each other and their communities. This includes ensuring that people
are not exposed to harmful content or accounts, their interactions on the
platform are safe, their accounts and data are secure and that civic expression
on Instagram is authentic and safe from foreign interference. 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. 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. We re looking for Data Scienti

and their data and enables seamless development of safe and secure products.
