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.”

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 (less than a year)Pros
Giant aspirations for changing the world combined with a high likelihood of achieving them. Executing on a vast number of initiatives simultaneously, and succeeding. The employee benefits are excellent, the compensation competitive, and the opportunities for movement within the organization is incredibly high; very little friction to following your passion somewhere else within the org.Cons
The organization has grown quickly and there are pockets of people who are reluctant to change and progress with the company. There is quite a distribution of work ethic across the org, and an unfortunate sense of entitlement in a portion of people. These are the same issues that I've experienced at every company; they're just universal truths of companies that grow.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Resist calcification by processes and formalism; maintain the minimum set of rules and policies we can get by with. Stay true to the company's core values and ignore the whims of the press. Stay in touch with your reports and their reports; the people doing the work will provide the best view of what's happening.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied online – interviewed at Twitter.Interview Details
This was by far one of the best interview experiences that I've ever had. The recruiter was kind, helpful, and always available to answer my questions. After my phone screen, I had a phone interview with one of the hiring managers, and then two round of in-person interviews. The process was seamless, and even fun. The team itself was also top-notch. At the end of the day I was told that my feedback was all positive, but the hiring manager chose to hire someone else based on preference. I truly appreciate that they were willing to provide feedback. I would consider interviewing for another opportunity at twitter simply based on their recruiting process.Interview Questions
