You Belong at Twilio
The Twilio platform enables companies to integrate communications directly into their applications via simple cloud APIs and with on-demand global reach. Twilio is therefore challenged with abstracting away a world of complexity so that our customers can go global without concern for managing a global communications network, carrier integrations and relationships throughout the world.
As a member of the messaging team at Twilio, you will enhance and scale the Messaging platform that touches millions of people every day. To take it to scale, you will be developing a complex distributed platform in Scala and Java and will be concerned with availability, throughput, latency, and data integrity. There will be a significant data component so you will be working with distributed SQL and NoSQL databases and caches. At the core are cloud technologies that enable deployment and management of computing resources globally. In addition, you will:
- Experience in at least one web stack and framework, preferably in Scala or Java.
- Exposure to SQL and key-value database systems.
- Have been an active participant in agile processes, continuous integration and test automation.
- Ideally, you have experience in a highly-available, uptime-critical production environment.
- 7+ years of software engineering experience.
- Education. Bachelor's degree in a computer science related field is a minimum requirement.
A great day would look like designing and developing elegant and highly scalable solutions to problems of managing multi terabytes of data, fronted with a highly available and responsive Rest API guaranteeing 99.999% SLA.
- Collaborate with Product Managers, Architects and Engineering leaders to define, architect and build new customer-facing features.
- Own, operate, and maintain your team’s services in a distributed production environment. Employ Agile methodologies to continuously deliver value to customers.
- Drive quality by writing unit, functional, load and performance tests.
- Release, monitor, and maintain features in a responsible, reliable way as part of our integrated DevOps practices.
- Excel as an engineer and be a productive member of the team where leadership is a behavioral trait, not a title.
If you are not experienced in communications, no worries, you will learn. We are seeking engineers who have solved complex problems at scale and have the aptitude to navigate uncharted waters.
