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.”
Why Work at Twitter?
Working at Twitter offers you a chance to think about fascinating, intricate and important challenges everyday. At Twitter, your work will be immediately felt by many millions of people around the globe.
The open exchange of information can have a positive impact on the world. We run our company with that principle in mind everyday; each employee has a voice and a chance to innovate. We have raucous weekly all-hands meetings where tough questions are asked and answered because we maintain a culture of openness and trust from the inside out.
Job satisfaction comes down to being able to do what you love while collaborating with talented people on a shared mission. Sound intriguing? Let’s talk.
Benefits & Perks
Our employees tell us that the most important benefit we offer is the work itself—the chance to solve interesting problems while having a positive impact on the world. We also offer a long list of benefits, including:

Every year, students and new grads have an impact on our company. Our Engineering team is aggressively hiring undergrad, masters and PhD students for full-time positions and summer internships.
“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.”
“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.

I have been working at Twitter full-time
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.
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.
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter (Boston, MA).
Recruiter was very friendly and available until they gave me the code challenge. I sent that in, and no word for a week. Then a form email saying I don't match any jobs at Twitter. What a kick in the gut. I thought I did well with the code challenge, though it didn't do everything they asked it was fully test covered and resilient. And easily finishable, if I took another couple hours at it. So I was pretty shocked after all that effort that not only do they reject me, but do so with no communication except the ambiguous and all encompassing form email. Really hurt my confidence.
