About Twitch

Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions. We bring the joy of co-op to everything, from casual gaming to esports to anime marathons, music, and art streams. Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate and grow their personal interests and passions. We’re always live at Twitch. Keep an eye on all things Twitch on LinkedIn, Twitter and on our Blog.

About the Position 

Twitch Developer Experience is changing the way we watch and play video games. Our developers use our products every day to build the future of live, multiplayer entertainment. E.g., Twitch Extensions allow viewers to lean-in and be a part of the show -- providing information about the game (what character is on screen?); voting for the next segment (what game should I play next?); or, helping viewers interact the game itself (please drop me loot!). 

We’re looking for an engineering manager to help us build the services that grow the frontier of playing and watching games, blurring the lines between. You’ll work across the entire company and with your team to create features that delight our customers. Reporting to a Senior Engineering Manager, you’ll act in both supportive and leadership roles. 

You’ll partner with product as they connect our customer’s needs to features. You’ll then design and scale systems, and people to exceed them. Developer Experience is a unique organization within Twitch that serves businesses and consumers, and considering scalability of solutions and processes is essential to success.

Together with third-party developers, you’ll bring never been before seen interactions to life that reach millions of users a day.
