Yes, you can search for remote roles in almost all of Twitter’s locations on their careers site. Parag Agrawal’s tweet this week only reinforces Twitter’s commitment to letting employees choose whether or not remote work is best for them.
Not exactly. You will see all roles tethered to a location. For example, most remote jobs advertised in the US are either limited to "remote US" or a particular timezone. Depending on your manager and team, you might have some flexibility to travel and work from different locations from time to time.
Yes, they even commit to mentioning it on their careers page.
We take an #AsyncFirst approach. That means more flexibility over how and when you work, and meeting only when it matters.
Asynchronous communications is growing within Twitter’s culture and specific teams. It is difficult though for an organization as large as Twitter to universally adopt async communication, especially having built a culture on offices and meetings.
Twitter has a great careers page. The section on Tweep Life gives you a good understanding of their commitment to people and culture. Flexibility, trust, diversity and inclusion are all of high importance at the company. Taking their Glassdoor reviews as a gauge, employee satisfaction is reasonably high at Twitter.
Twitter has offices in 38 cities around the world. You can choose to apply to work from one of these locations, or from home, or a combination of both (residency requirements permitting).
Yes - The average estimated annual salary, including base and bonus, at Twitter is $133,045, or $63 per hour, while the estimated median salary is $144,255, or $69 per hour.
At Twitter, RSUs are subject to a 4-year vesting schedule: 25% vests in the 1st year (8.33% every 4 months), then 25% in each of the 2nd, 3rd and 4th years (6.25% every 3 months).
Every year employees get a new grant that vests over 4 years to bring them up to their target compensation. The number of vests in the first year may be variable. In some cases employees may have just 1 vesting date in the first year while others may have 3 vesting dates (6 month cliff, then quarterly after).
Absolutely. They have a publicly accountable 2025 vision:
Twitter's purpose is to serve the public conversation. Violence, harassment and other similar types of behavior discourage people from expressing themselves, and ultimately diminish the value of global public conversation. Our rules are to ensure all people can participate in the public conversation freely and safely.
As of December 2020, there were over 5,500 employees at Twitter.
