Software Engineer, Front End & Full Stack - Discovery (Boston)

Boston, MA

Help us continually improve our understanding of the vast number of tweets flowing through our platform so that we can delight our users with best-in-class product experiences.

Who We Are

Twitter wants to delight its users with meaningful and relevant content. We believe that content understanding is necessary for this and that content understanding all starts with understanding the world that we are all a part of.

We are an agile team that is passionate about enabling awesome experiences for Twitter users with the results of our work. We build low latency data ingestion pipelines to bring realtime data into Twitter, big data pipelines to gain insights into vast amounts of data, low latency services to classify content and bring our data to Twitter product services, and vast suites of rich tooling to bring all of this together with human insight. We have many difficult challenges ahead and need your help to drive visible product impact with our data!

What You’ll Do

You will join a team of engineers who love what they do and work with them to deliver astonishing amounts of products with higher quality than anyone could do individually. You will build high throughput systems, highly efficient user focused UIs, and work with vast amounts of data. You will be faced with many challenges that need creative problem solving and novel applications of state-of-the-art technologies. Someone in this role is expected to mentor others at times, but also to be mentored by others in order to grow. Most importantly, you’ll be expected to keep our internal and external customers in mind and build meaningful products focused on them.

Who You Are

We are looking for someone with a strong technical background who loves solving new and challenging problems. The ideal candidate would have a demonstrated history of owning their work and building all parts of a solution in order to delight their customers.

If this sounds like it might be you, you probably also:

  • Are able to effectively communicate technical ideas to others

  • Can work across the entire web stack from browser to backend

  • Love thinking about systems scalability

  • Enjoy showing off the latest UI you’ve built out

Requirements

  • A strong technical background with experience using modern web technology like ES6, React, Redux, HTML5, LESS/SASS

  • Experience building backend services with some server-side technology such as Java, Scala, or Node.js.
