Fast-paced, dynamic, and proactive, YouTube's Trust & Safety team is dedicated to making YouTube a safe place for users, viewers, and content creators around the world to belong, create, and express themselves. Whether understanding and solving their online content concerns, navigating within global legal frameworks, or writing and enforcing worldwide policy, the Trust & Safety team is on the frontlines of enhancing the YouTube experience, building internet safety, and protecting free speech in our ever-evolving digital world.

As a Policy Enforcement Manager, you will be responsible for working with global teams to prevent violative content from appearing on the site with a focus on Graphic Violence.

At YouTube, we believe that everyone deserves to have a voice, and that the world is a better place when we listen, share, and build community through our stories. We work together to give everyone the power to share their story, explore what they love, and connect with one another in the process. Working at the intersection of cutting-edge technology and boundless creativity, we move at the speed of culture with a shared goal to show people the world. We explore new ideas, solve real problems, and have fun - and we do it all together.

• Analyze, identify, prioritize, and deliver operational improvement opportunities (i.e. full cycle workflows from identification of bad content, review by vendor teams, removal, and appeals).

• Partner with Policy, Engineering, Vendor Operations, and Analytics teams to define improvement plans for scaled enforcement and implement in a timely manner.
• Report on graphic content operations, follow up on anomalies by in-depth analysis into metrics, and formulate specific hypotheses on operational health, testing such theories, and providing data-driven recommendations for leadership.

• Bachelor's degree or equivalent practical experience.
• 4 years of experience working in operations such as scaled or sales operations, vendor management, and process or organizational streamlining.
• Ability to work non-standard working hours, including on-call rotation work hours.
