What you’ll be doing:
You’re an experienced mobile engineer looking to make Twitter for Android & iOS one of the best mobile experiences out there. You're someone who excels at user-centric product development and has a passion for making beautiful, smooth, delightful mobile experiences.

Twitter is experiencing unprecedented growth with its Engineering, Product, and Design (EPD) organizations as it enters its teenage tech years. We have a great platform, passionate users, and a very bright future. Launched in July 2006, Twitter now has 320M active users. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, we have a global presence of over 3,900 employees across 33 offices, with over half of these employees representing EPD.
