Company Description

Twitter users generate many terabytes of data every day; Twitter engineers run hundreds of experiments; Twitter Data Engineers build data pipelines and data processes that calculate metrics and scale increasingly sophisticated models of users and content.

The Data Science team at Twitter is at the intersection of all this data and strives to make it actionable to all business units around Twitter. Data Engineers work alongside Data Scientists analyze this data via observational analyses, trend analyses, modeling, and new measurement strategies. We also implement metrics to track the impact of new product experiments and more generally find ways to make very large scale data approachable to guide our decisions.
