Job Description

Zoom is in search of a leader for its Prevention & Recovery Team (PnR) which is a critical part of Zoom’s Trust and Safety (T&S) team. T&S handles fraud, complaints of abuse on the platform (such as meeting disruptions), responds to law enforcement requests from around the globe, carries out part of Zoom’s export control program, and is building Zoom’s arsenal of tools to combat abuse both before and after it happens.

PnR is the operational linchpin of the T&S team. We respond to and investigate user reports of abuse, we help develop new proactive tools to prevent abuse from happening on Zoom, and we work cross-functionally to create products that are safe-by-design.
