Who We Are:
Twitter is one of the largest and most popular platforms in the world. Our code operates at massive scale and speed, serving billions of requests per day, connecting hundreds of millions of active Twitter users.
Our team is building a product that uses machine learning to generate recommendations that help businesses run successful marketing campaigns on Twitter. We like to think of it as a clever sidekick that can crunch your data and come up with optimisation ideas so advertisers don’t have to!
We are a full stack team. We run our own data pipeline, machine learning models and front-end.
Our Engineering Environment:
Our team and technology came to Twitter through an acquisition (Aiden.ai in November 2019) and we have a strong “startup mentality”: we try to move fast and be agile. We work directly and very closely with our Product and Sales counterparts.
Our product stack is mainly Typescript on Node, Python and Scala.

* Communicate early and often, building a culture of trust and collaboration between engineers and teams across multiple offices and time zones.

* Be ready to roll up your sleeves and work through technical challenges with your team.
