As a product policy analyst, you will support our product offerings with a public policy perspective, serving as a bridge between our product team and the policy community. You will work cross functionally to monitor and comply with global regulations; create written materials outlining our responsible product approach (e.g.,policy briefs, white papers and government filings); and support product deployment. The role is highly cross functional and requires an ability to take initiative, work with diverse internal and external stakeholders, and execute in a fast paced environment on our highest priorities.

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.

    • Support policy partnerships and collaborations with governments, nonprofits, and/or academics to advance the use of product/Claude for socially beneficial uses 
    • Engage with key policy stakeholders (e.g., via briefings, consultations, demos, roundtables, or by supporting senior-level engagements) to demonstrate Anthropic’s responsible product development, share latest product research, and build/maintain trust

You might be a good fit if you:

    • Have 5+ years public policy experience in tech, government, or both
    • Are adept at working with diverse cross functional teams (including but not limited to trust and safety, legal, product, research, comms, and marketing)
    • Are experienced in designing and advocating for concrete policy and regulatory proposals for consumer and/or enterprise tech productsExperience briefing policymakers and government officials
    • Are an exceptional written and verbal communication communicator
    • Are an eager learner who enjoys thinking through policy and product implications of technical developments and industry trends
    • Have the ability work independently and adeptly in fast moving dynamic environments
    • Have demonstrated interest and experience in a complicated technical subject (ideally, AI, but other examples could be quantum computing, advanced cryptography, fusion power, etc)

Strong candidates may also:

    • Have direct experience working in product policy (e.g. trust and safety, public policy, or related role/team)
    • Have experience in AI/ML (generative AI a bonus)
    • Have expertise in copyright, privacy, competition or other related tech policy area
    • Have experience developing and executing partnership(s) with civil society, academia, and/or government

Annual Salary (USD)

    • The expected salary range for this position is $230,000 - $260,000.
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.

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.
