At Twitter, our mission is to instantly connect users to the information most meaningful to them. Realizing this mission involves work in areas such as recommendation systems, information retrieval systems, large graph analysis, machine learning, spam, etc. We are looking for machine learning experts to work on exciting algorithmic as well as deep infrastructure issues, all at a really big scale.

Although you will work on cutting-edge problems, this position is not a research position.

You will be equally comfortable doing incremental quality work and also building brand new systems to enable future quality improvements.

  • Conduct design and code reviews.
  • Interface with analytics, product management, and operations teams.
  • Work with large unstructured and structured data sets (multi-terabyte+, 100MM+ daily transaction volumes).

Requirements

  • Knowledge of a scripting language, e.g. Ruby or Python
