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

    Yes, the perks are great, but whats even better is having the opportunity to learn and grow with an organization that is literally going where no company has gone before. Yes, this job is hard, but you are pushed to learn and grow in ways you never thought you could - which is the best perk of all.

    Cons

    Company is in its growing stage - moving out of that start up culture is difficult at first but I am sure it will pay off in the end.
