The Twitter Mission
Twitter allows users to post text updates via SMS, instant messaging, email, Twitter’s website and third party applications. Users have their own profile page that displays their latest updates. In addition, users can become “friends” with one another, or simply be a “follower.” Other than reading another person’s profile page, a user can also receive others’ updates through text messages, RSS or third party applications.
Twitter itself is a free service, though users may have to pay text messaging charges to the phone carriers.
Work with interesting people!
You'll be joining a unique group of people who prior to joining Twitter spent time creating and building other popular products and services from companies such as Google, Blogger, Xanga, Odeo, CNET, Danger, UserScripts.org, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Vodafone and lots more—if you're curious about any of these projects, or have your own to share, please come and visit us.
Life at Twitter
Why work at Twitter?
We have our own cozy little building right in South Park—a tiny little green space in San Francisco's SOMA neighborhood. On sunny days, the park is full of folks from nearby startups laying on the grass, eating burritos, and maybe enjoying a nice soy latte—iced! There's also a playground in the park.
Competitive salary, full benefits
Although Twitter is a small startup with less than 20 employees, we offer competitive salaries and full benefits. We even have an HR department (her name is Krissy), if you have questions about your 401k, flex spending, health, dental, vacation, stock options and all that stuff. We put a water filter on the faucet and the kitchen is kept well stocked with a variety of snacks from a nearby Whole Foods. Also, everyone gets a free iPhone.
