Who We Are
We are a team within Twitter’s Revenue Platforms organization, responsible for all of the ads revenue processing ($2B+). We call ourselves RP-1 after the rocket fuel and love the analogy because we calculate and bring in revenue - fuel that powers our rocket ship - Twitter!
We’re on a mission to build the foundation of a strong platform to enable a multi-fold growth of Twitter’s revenue. We will accelerate the pace of execution for the entire Revenue organization, and our plans include structural overhauls and redesigns of existing systems as well as building new services from scratch.
Twitter’s revenue depends on RP-1 because we:
- Compute how much advertisers owe Twitter and how much Twitter owes its partners and publishers. The computation is handled by the scalable and reliable online and offline pipelines that efficiently process an average of over 250,000 transactions per minute with a micro-dollar precision.
- Enable payments functionality for advertisers, and in not-so-distant future, for other Twitter revenue streams.
- Equip advertisers with various types of funding sources to fuel their campaigns (a funding source provides a campaign with money it needs to run).

- You have strong opinions but are willing to change your mind
