At Twitter, we consider it our responsibility to foster a healthy global conversation, inclusive and open to everyone in the world who wants to join.
Who We Are:
The mission of the Search Infrastructure team is to provide best in class information retrieval (search) primitives for quickly and efficiently building new relevance-based products.
Towards this we build, scale and maintain the tweet search indexes. These indexes currently power a number of Twitter’s core products like the Home Timeline, Search Result Pages, Ranked Conversations, Data Products and many more.
We are currently in the process of building a generic search-as-a-service system that will accelerate product development by enabling product engineers to quickly and easily build new search indexes for different types of entities that not just Tweets.
Our infrastructure sits at the intersection of high scale distributed systems and machine learning infrastructure - as our infrastructure handles both indexing & serving search results as well as ingesting features and running machine-learning models that help rank the search results.
We are a tight-knit and supportive group that loves doing great work together, and we are looking for exceptional additions to our flock!
