Write code in a variety of languages and contexts to improve data collection and analysis.
Build testing, auditing, and monitoring systems that scale both with an ever-increasing amount of data and with a quickly growing engineering team.
Work with engineers throughout Twitter to understand and improve our core data collection pipelines.
Coding skills to let you dive into any piece of code and get up to speed on how it works.
Technical and diplomatic savvy to get needed changes incorporated into existing code.
