Overview

Twitter’s real-time ecosystem operates at massive scale. We are looking for engineers who can harness this data through beautiful, simple tools and services. We serve a diverse and growing set of customers who rely on you and your team to help them be more efficient and effective in their jobs.

  • Implement software in a reliable and sustainable manner.
  • Code primarily in Scala, Javascript, and TypeScript, built on open source libraries such as Finagle and React.
  • Support and maintain your software systems to ensure a high quality customer experience.
  • Collaborate with, learn from, and mentor teammates.

Who you are:

  • Demonstrated ability to write modular and well-tested code.
  • Track record of crafting and implementing complex software services.
  • 5+ years of industry experience at a large-scale internet service.
  • You have expertise developing on the JVM (e.g. Java, Scala), and understand asynchronous I/O, concurrency, and the Java memory model.
  • Comfortable working in a small and dynamic development team, context switching (when appropriate) between projects and languages.
  • Datacenter, Network and System knowledge: you know the layers below the applications.
  • You are not afraid of a challenge at scale.
  • Solid understanding of systems and application design, including the operational trade-offs of various designs.
