Description

Twitter’s Brand Strategy team is responsible for innovating how we generate, represent, and deliver new solutions and user experiences to bring to Twitter's most valuable advertisers.

The team is made up of designers, creative technologists, data scientists, and producers. We’re responsible for studying how people interact on Twitter, the overall digital landscape, and in their day-to-day lives to design experiences that get them talking.

Our broader Brand Strategy team’s collective mission is to create human-centric ideas worth talking about – a goal the Innovation segment of the team shares and embraces. It’s ambitious to create work so good people proactively want to talk about it, but it’s inherent to our DNA.
