Twitter: Front End Engineer - Media Client Infrastructure
141 Portland St, 6th Floor
Cambridge, MA 02139

Who We Are

Media Client Infrastructure is a team of mobile, web, and video engineers that owns the client-side technology infrastructure that powers Twitter’s media experiences. We’re a small, engineering-driven team that values autonomy and flexibility, and are always looking for ways to improve how we work. Video is a very important part of Twitter’s business, so we value rigor and correctness over speed, and carefully measure the impact of any significant change we make. Our core product is the Twitter Video Player library, which is used by internal product engineering teams to build on media-rich experiences for hundreds of millions of users. 

What You’ll Do

  • Work with a team of engineers to help improve the quality, performance, and reliability of our front-end web media infrastructure.
  • Regularly contribute to team roadmap, process, and technology decisions.
  • Partner with product teams to build new infrastructure functionality to help bring their ideas to life.  
  • Be an excellent teammate. We strive to create an environment where everyone feels like they can succeed, and expect you to help maintain that. 

Who You Are

  • You have 3+ years of experience with modern JavaScript: the Twitter Video Player is a React/Redux that is built with the standard tooling (Webpack, Babel, ES6, Linting, JS Typing, Prettier, etc). Your experience and opinions in this area are important to us.
  • You appreciate what it takes to build critical software infrastructure.
  • You've got empathy and self-awareness: The foundational trust of all strong teams relies on understanding yourself and others.
  • Working knowledge of video playback technology, especially in a browser environment, is nice to have. But it’s more important that you are willing to learn it once you join (most of us did the same). 

We are committed to an inclusive and diverse Twitter. Twitter is an equal opportunity employer. We do not discriminate based on race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, veteran status, genetic information, marital status or any legally protected status.
