Head of T&S Engineering
San Francisco


Anthropic is developing AI assistants that are helpful, harmless, and honest. As usage of our AI services grows, we need to ensure they are not misused. The T&S team is at the forefront of protecting our users from ethical, technical, and social risks from generative AI as well as ensuring that our users abide by Anthropic’s Acceptable Use Policies. The T&S team at Anthropic builds protections for new AI features enabled by the research teams and protects new products and surfaces developed by our product teams.

We're looking for an experienced leader to lead the T&S Engineering team. As the head of T&S engineering you will be responsible for: building detection systems to detect adversarial users, violative sessions, abusing prompts as well as violating completions generated from the model; building the software and data infrastructure to aid in detecting, reviewing, actioning, and recording T&S actions; building systems that scale with Anthropic’s growth, make design decisions that enable safe deployment of Anthropic’s model on, first-party API and cloud platforms like AWS and GCP; collaborating deeply with research, product, and external partners to ensure robust and timely T&S coverage; partnering closely with Anthropic’s product policy, detection and enforcement teams building and growing a world-class T&S engineering team participating in ensuring that Anthropic’s Responsible Scaling Policies are met at each safety level

About Anthropic
Anthropic is an AI safety and research company that’s working to build reliable, interpretable, and steerable AI systems. We want AI to be safe and beneficial for our customers and for society as a whole. Our interdisciplinary team has experience across ML, physics, policy, business and product.


    • Lead the engineering teams to ensure high precision and recall detection across content, accounts, and behavioral abuse.
    • Develop systems to help identify new attack patternsDevelop ubiquitous T&S coverage across all deployments -, 1P API, and cloud platforms like AWS and GCP
    • Lead building of highly adaptable T&S systems so that new kinds of attacks can be detected and actioned quickly 
    • Develop a T&S engineering system for reviewing, actioning, and recording all entities flagged and/or actioned by T&S 
    • Work closely with research teams (e.g., alignment, interpretability, frontier and societal impact red-teaming) to build industry leading T&S detection 
    • Collaborate with product engineering teams (API, applications, platforms, security, and inference teams) to enable T&S protections for all surfaces and products
    • Design T&S specific processes for engineering to respond to escalations
    • Collaborate with Data Science to develop, track, and act on metrics.
    • Build, coach, and mentor the T&S engineering team members to be able to help Anthropic achieve the mission of building the safest AI

You may be a good fit if you:

    • Have 6+ years in an engineering management role, leading teams building integrity, trust and safety, or anti-fraud/abuse systems
    • Have experience in designing and building T&S systems like flagging, reviewing, actioning, and recording systems for T&S
    • Have deep experience in detection techniques for content, scaled attack, bot detection, account fraud, misinformation, and/or harmful user-generated content
    • Have the ability to balance speed and precision when responding to attacks and evaluating risk
    • Have excellent communication skills to explain threats and tradeoffs to stakeholders
    • Have people management skills in coaching, recruiting, and developing engineers
    • Have experience designing operational processes around on-call, post-mortems, etc.

Strong candidates may also:

    • Have a background in building systems at scale with a focus on reliability and performance
    • Have experience with AI/ML and understanding how models can be manipulated
    • Have knowledge of common internet communities, and adversaries like spammers, fraud rings, and their evolving techniques
    • Have experience in designing and building systems across multiple cloud platforms
    • Use technical depth to assess and improve system designs
    • Have project management skills to balance priority tradeoffs

Annual Salary (USD)

    • The salary range for this position is $400-485K.
Location-based hybrid policy: Currently, we expect all staff to be in one of our offices at least 25% of the time.

Deadline to apply: None. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

US visa sponsorship: We do sponsor visas! However, we aren't able to successfully sponsor visas for every role and every candidate; operations roles are especially difficult to support. But if we make you an offer, we will make every effort to get you into the United States, and we retain an immigration lawyer to help with this.

We encourage you to apply even if you do not believe you meet every single qualification. Not all strong candidates will meet every single qualification as listed.  Research shows that people who identify as being from underrepresented groups are more prone to experiencing imposter syndrome and doubting the strength of their candidacy, so we urge you not to exclude yourself prematurely and to submit an application if you're interested in this work. We think AI systems like the ones we're building have enormous social and ethical implications. We think this makes representation even more important, and we strive to include a range of diverse perspectives on our team.

US Benefits -  The following benefits are for our US-based employees:
- Optional equity donation matching at a 3:1 ratio, up to 50% of your equity grant.
- Comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance for you and all your dependents.
- 401(k) plan with 4% matching.
- 21 weeks of paid parental leave.

How we're different
We believe that the highest-impact AI research will be big science. At Anthropic we work as a single cohesive team on just a few large-scale research efforts. And we value impact — advancing our long-term goals of steerable, trustworthy AI — rather than work on smaller and more specific puzzles. We view AI research as an empirical science, which has as much in common with physics and biology as with traditional efforts in computer science. We're an extremely collaborative group, and we host frequent research discussions to ensure that we are pursuing the highest-impact work at any given time. As such, we greatly value communication skills. We do not have boundaries between engineering and research, and we expect all of our technical staff to contribute to both as needed.

The easiest way to understand our research directions is to read our recent research. This research continues many of the directions our team worked on prior to Anthropic, including: GPT-3, Circuit-Based Interpretability, Multimodal Neurons, Scaling Laws, AI & Compute, Concrete Problems in AI Safety, and Learning from Human Preferences.

Come work with us!
Anthropic is a public benefit corporation based in San Francisco. We offer competitive compensation and benefits, optional equity donation matching, generous vacation and parental leave, flexible working hours, and a lovely office space in which to collaborate with colleagues.
