Who We Are

The Video Data Infrastructure builds stream and aggregation infrastructure that makes it easy to measure and understand the performance of video at Twitter’s scale. We collect tens of billions of daily video events from hundreds of millions of Twitter users. In order to do this, we work on cutting edge streaming compute technologies. The correct collection, aggregation, and serving of video analytics data are critical to being able to meet the strategic needs of Twitter both now and in the future. Our video data empowers data scientists to gain insights into how our users are consuming video related content and answer important questions in support of data-driven business decisions, it drives externally visible video view video analysis in Twitter products, and it allows product teams to build and measure what they want quickly and easily. We focus heavily on our customers to make sure we’re building the best products to multiply the impact of others at Twitter. We’re a team of highly-skilled, collaborative, enthusiastic and passionate engineers working in this leading-edge space.

What You’ll Do

You’ll help identify and build products that allow developers at Twitter to easily aggregate, measure, and analyze the performance of their products at scale, and end users of Twitter to understand how their media is performing on the platform. We’ll both challenge and support you to do the best work of your career. You’ll have the opportunity to have a truly global impact, working on products that shape and influence the world.

Who You Are

We’re looking for a software engineer who excels at building robust and scalable products in a collaborative and customer focused environment.
