Who We Are
We are the Compute Platform team, responsible for providing Twitter Engineering with an approachable, productive, and reliable compute platform. Our infrastructure powers most of the services behind Twitter.com, Twitter’s revenue-generating businesses, and a variety of internal infrastructure. Twitter’s 1,000+ engineers use our compute platform to launch and operate their services on a fleet of over 100,000 physical and virtual machines.
The Compute Platform team’s primary focus is on the systems and tooling that sit between the Kubernetes API and Twitter Engineers. Our systems drive deploys, workload scheduling, bin packing, and auto scaling across clusters that are in our data centers and the public cloud.
