Software Engineer (SWE I, Sr, Staff roles) - Creative Infrastructure Team

The Position

The Creatives Infrastructure team powers all ad formats at Twitter.

You will contribute to foundational backend areas (e.g. Unified Cards Platform, Generic New Ad Supply platform, …) that allow product teams to build new creatives quickly, while ensuring the reliability and quality of all of our ad formats. This critical work will help Twitter accelerate product development and unlock new product use cases that will contribute to scaling to the next $10B of revenue in the coming years.
