Twilio is looking for a passionate Software Engineer who lives the Twilio Magic and has a personal drive for building great products and features with a focus on quality, innovation and teamwork. They also have:
- A minimum 2+ years of hands-on experience developing and scaling complex distributed systems based on popular JVM languages. Expertise in at least one web stack and framework.
- Extensive experience scaling production backend systems. Can design and develop horizontally-scalable, resilient and performing-under-load systems. Hands on experience with cloud technologies such as Amazon Web Services, OpenStack or Azure.
- Mastery of Agile processes, continuous integration and test automation.
- Ability to operate from conception through continuous operation of 24x7 services.
- Ideally, experience in a production DevOps environment, SIP, VoIP, Kafka and Docker.
As a Software Engineer, you will live the Twilio Magic values:
- WRITE IT DOWN: Value the importance of keeping your team’s documentation up-to-date, having focused meetings with clear agenda/notes as well as sharing architectural designs and feedback across our teams through our own blueprint process.
- DRAW THE OWL: Explore and create your own solutions to problems and connect with like-minded and easy-going colleagues to self-organize, innovate and build Voice products together.
- BE AN OWNER & BE BOLD: You build it, you own it! We believe that there’s no better way of knowing and caring for your products/services than owning them from start to finish. We expect you to be bold and think outside the box while doing so, put your creativity to the test!
- EMPOWER OTHERS: Teamwork and companionship does not begin and end inside your team, it runs throughout our offices and vast network of Twilions, where everyone is always ready to help and see others succeed. Buddy programs, regular tech-talks, product demos and team-building events are just some examples, but this spirit is truly at the core of our daily-interactions.
- NO SHENANIGANS: We’re committed to a work-culture where diverse and honest opinions are shared openly and frequently. A culture where there’s no “we/they” and problems or issues are brought up and tackled as a team.
A great day for you would be working alongside a small but collaborative team, building APIs on top of one of Twilio’s largest platforms, both in user base and in revenue. In doing so, you’re pushing production code impacting millions of developers, helping companies solve their problems. At the same time, you will be helping more junior developers by mentoring them, providing guidance, and positively influencing their careers.
