All team members play a vital part in bringing our mission to life. At Twitch, we believe everyone has a role to play in creating an inclusive environment where everyone can thrive and grow.

In order to measure our effectiveness in recruiting a wide range of talent to Twitch, we invite all applicants to self-identify their gender, race and ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability and military veteran status.  It’s our policy to provide equal employment opportunities to all applicants based solely on their qualifications. Your voluntary self-disclosures will be anonymized in reporting, and will not be used in any aspect of employment related decisions, nor shared with hiring managers.
