Twitter helps you create and share ideas and information instantly, without barriers.
Our company culture directly aligns with its purpose as a platform — a place for discovery, self-expression and human connection. At Twitter, we have created an environment where people are actually encouraged to bring their authentic selves and their passions to work.
Once here, our employees have a myriad of opportunities to grow new skills and deepen those they already possess. Above all, we have created a place where employees come together as empowered individuals for the strength of the collective.
As a product, Twitter brings you closer to others. As an employer, Twitter does the same. We often hear employees say, “I joined Twitter, and I joined a family.”

Every year, students and new grads have an impact on our company. Our Engineering team is aggressively hiring undergrad, masters and PhD students for full-time positions and summer internships.
“When I started, I had very little real-world experience—I’d never coded professionally before—so, I was really excited and really nervous... On my third day at work, I got to see the President of Russia... A few weeks later, Kanye West (@ kanyewest) ’dropped by’ for lunch.”
“Twitter doesn't just hire great engineers, it hires great people. It goes without saying you'll work with amazing engineers; the real joy is working with people who are hilarious, fantastically interesting, and generous with their time and teaching.

I have been working at Twitter full-time (less than an year)Pros
Great co-workers. A global organization that feels local in regional markets. Management that inspires you to do your best while providing autonomy. Senior management is extremely transparent. An overall great corporate culture that also provides great benefits to its staff.Cons
Growing pains that come along with any rapidly growing business. The company is getting very large, which can make it hard for new employees to navigate. That said, Im sure the organization will come out of this phase of its development better than most and continue to be an amazing place to work.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Twitter in September 2014.Interview Details
Applied online and was contacted within a couple of weeks by a recruiter. A technical phone interview was scheduled, but the interviewer never called. Send an email to the recruiter and interview coordinator. Turns out there was a glitch with their system, so the the phone interview did not appear on interviewer's schedule. Rescheduled for another phone interviewer. The interview used HankerRank code pair which can compile your code.
Asked to code a function that would add two binary numbers given the two numbers as strings. The output should be given as a binary number in a string. Fairly straight forward and simple problem. However, had some minor syntax errors when I went to compile the code (was coding in C++).
The recruiter never got back to me after my interview. I had to send a follow-up email.Interview Questions
