Software Engineer- Traffic
Who We Are:
The Traffic team builds software to connect Twitter services to each other and to the world! We provide routing, authentication, service discovery, rate limiting, and more. New efforts are underway that will radically improve latencies, fault isolation, and security.
What You’ll Do:
As a software developer on our team, you will work with highly talented engineers on one of the world's highest throughput platforms. You will participate in all of our initiatives, having ample opportunities to both learn and teach. You will be expected to lead some efforts, while following on others. You will assist in launching our new service discovery platform, improve latency by moving compute and storage closer to our customers, upgrade our authentication, and build out points of presence. The services you create and operate will play a key role in user satisfaction and growth. Millions of existing customers will immediately benefit from this work, and many more new customers will follow.
The work we do is important to the community at large. Where appropriate, you will help us engage that community by open-sourcing portions of your work. Inside Twitter, your work will empower dozens of engineering teams, and hundreds of co-workers. Externally, you will empower people to connect and communicate.
