About The Job

Trust & Safety team members are tasked with identifying and taking on the biggest problems that challenge the safety and integrity of our products. They use technical know-how, excellent problem-solving skills, user insights, and proactive communication to protect users and our partners from abuse across Google products like Search, Maps, Gmail, and Google Ads. On this team, you're a big-picture thinker and strategic team-player with a passion for doing what’s right. You work globally and cross-functionally with Google engineers and product managers to identify and fight abuse and fraud cases at Google speed - with urgency. And you take pride in knowing that every day you are working hard to promote trust in Google and ensuring the highest levels of user safety.

The Legal Removals team aims to inspire user trust by balancing freedom of expression, access to information, brand impact, and user experience, to transform Google’s principles into fair guidelines for using our products.

As a Policy Specialist, you will be the key to ensuring the success of your team by analyzing and creating policies, coordinating communications across the team, and thinking about the broader implications of the actions we take. You will join a team responsible for managing APAC issues on content removal requests, and influencing cross-functional stakeholders to prioritize users’ and Legal Removals’ needs. This may include developing/launching policies and processes to scale requirements from upcoming legislation regarding content moderation issues (like violent extremism, copyright, defamation, or data protection). You’ll also manage legal removal requests (including government requests) from receipt to resolution, which entails reviewing and processing online content based on internal policy.

At Google we work hard to earn our users’ trust every day. Trust & Safety is Google’s team of abuse fighting and user trust experts working daily to make the internet a safer place. We partner with teams across Google to deliver bold solutions in abuse areas such as malware, spam and account hijacking. A diverse team of Analysts, Policy Specialists, Engineers, and Program Managers, we work to reduce risk and fight abuse across all of Google’s products, protecting our users, advertisers, and publishers across the globe in over 40 languages.


  • Develop, launch, and enforce scalable policies and processes for managing legal content removal requests from Korea and APAC more generally, and drive innovation regarding best practices for implementing such policies.
  • Analyze policy and legal challenges facing technology platforms and make recommendations on how Google should address them.
  • Serve as a strategic advisor and liaison to cross-functional stakeholders, including Legal, Public Policy, Trust and Safety, and Engineering, and drive and coordinate the development and maintenance of Legal Removals tools and processes.
  • Engage and communicate with users, governments, and other internal/external stakeholders on policy issues, and resolve high-profile policy escalations to ensure policy analysis and recommendations consider all teams’ perspectives.
  • Review sensitive content as needed (e.g. hate speech, violent extremism, etc.) and work occasional off-hours coverage rotations.
