About the job
Did you use Google Maps recently to find a store location, order take-out from your favorite restaurant or check when the supermarket is open? If so, you are one of the millions of people benefiting from the Google Maps UGC (User Generated Content) team’s work.
Given how the world is constantly changing, UGC on Google Maps has grown significantly over the years. While the vast majority of contributors are good and well-intentioned, some try to take advantage of the platform. As a consequence, the risk of fraud and other forms of abuse such as misinformation has also increased.
At Google, we put our users first. The trust users have in any platform is directly proportional to the information quality provided to them. Incorrect data, or harmful content such as fraud erodes user trust. The Fraud Protection team of UGC focuses on developing robust and holistic mitigations for various forms of abusive content and contribution behaviors. We build ML models, tools and infrastructure that are geared towards identifying and publishing only good UGC while keeping abuse and low-quality content out, understanding our contributors, enabling us to identify those who we can trust and empower them to enrich the Maps experience, and providing abuse protection as a platform for first-party developers enabling them to build new experiences.
