    We're committing to a more diverse Twitter | Twitter Blogs

    We want the makeup of our company to reflect the vast range of people who use Twitter. Doing so will help us build a product to better serve people around the world. While we've already been working towards internal diversity goals at different levels of the company, I'm very pleased to report that we are now setting company-wide diversity goals - and we're sharing them publicly.

Twitter – Why Work For Us?

Twitter helps you create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.



Our company culture directly aligns with its purpose as a platform — a place for discovery, self-expression and human connection. At Twitter, we have created an environment where people are actually encouraged to bring their authentic selves and their passions to work.

Once here, our employees have a myriad of opportunities to grow new skills and deepen those they already possess. Above all, we have created a place where employees come together as empowered individuals for the strength of the collective.

As a product, Twitter brings you closer to others. As an employer, Twitter does the same. We often hear employees say, “I joined Twitter, and I joined a family.”

“When I started, I had very little real-world experience—I’d never coded professionally before—so, I was really excited and really nervous... On my third day at work, I got to see the President of Russia... A few weeks later, Kanye West (@ kanyewest) ’dropped by’ for lunch.”

My Awesome Summer Internship at Twitter by Siddarth Chandrasekaran

“Twitter doesn't just hire great engineers, it hires great people. It goes without saying you'll work with amazing engineers; the real joy is working with people who are hilarious, fantastically interesting, and generous with their time and teaching.

    Pros

    You work with a platform that is connecting people everyday to the world, letting voices be heard, sparking revolutions and democratising the world at large. If that doesn't motivate you - chances are very few things will :) The culture is empowering - You are the master of what you want to create here and the company stands behind you for support. Leadership is very transparent and approachable. I've worked in two big global companies before and the level of transparency here is my favourite thing.

    Cons

    We're still figuring some things out so things are constantly evolving. If that's not something someone is comfortable with then I can see how that might be a problem for them.

    Product Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    I was referred by an employee at Twitter for a product design position. I had a brief phone screening where I learned more about the role and they asked for information on my background. Afterwards, we setup a call for the interview. An emergency came up on my end, and while I was able to chat briefly for a couple of minutes with the interviewer, I asked them if we could reschedule. Since that point, the people at Twitter have completely dodged and ignored all of my emails and I can't get any information out of them. They are completely unresponsive. This has really disappointed me, and I won't be applying for Twitter again. Their HR team is completely scattered, and the applicants are the ones suffering.
