Revue makes it easy for writers and publishers to send editorial newsletters — and get paid. We are a recently acquired team within Twitter that is looking for engineers to help us execute on improving Revue and integrating with other Twitter services.
With a robust community of writers and readers, Revue by Twitter is uniquely positioned to help organizations and writers grow their readership faster and at a much larger scale than anywhere else. Many established writers and publishers have built their brand on Twitter, amassing an audience that’s hungry for the next article or perspective they Tweet. Our goal is to make it easy for them to connect with their subscribers, while also helping readers better discover writers and their content. We’re imagining a lot of ways to do this, from allowing people to sign up for newsletters from their favorite follows on Twitter, to new settings for writers to host conversations with their subscribers. It will all work seamlessly within Twitter.
And for those looking to generate revenue, we’re creating a durable incentive model through paid newsletters. Bringing Revue to Twitter will supercharge this offering, helping writers grow their paid subscribers while also incentivizing them to produce engaging and relevant content that drives conversations on Twitter. You can expect audience-based monetization to be an area that we’ll continue to develop new ways to support, whether it’s helping broaden revenue streams or serving as a cornerstone of someone’s business.
What started out as a monolithic RoR prototype evolved and is still evolving into a loosely coupled architecture sending out hundreds of millions of emails.
Our battle continues for lower response times, scalability and killer features and we need you to help us with that. We love high level thinking and visionaries but we like them even more when it's combined with pragmatism and a hands on approach. So we're looking for a back-end developer who thinks about scalability and performance but also loves to make features come to live together with the front-end team.
You'll have a lot of freedom to research, design and implement tools, solutions and features.
This is what our stack looks like:
Ruby on Rails
Amazon AWS (we use api gateway, lambda, sqs, kinesis, elasticsearch)
What you'll do:
Together with the team design and implement new features in Ruby on Rails or any other language if that makes more sense
Optimize the service for speed and reliability
Keep our codebase up to date using the latest best practices and tools
Actively work with our front-end developers to tie the front-end and back-end together
