Senior Software Engineer: Health Core Infrastructure
Are you an engineer who’s passionate about defending online users against abuse, spam, and manipulation?
Health is Twitter’s top priority and we need your help.
We build and maintain the large-scale, low latency distributed systems that power Twitter’s real-time feature computation, rule engine, and data exploration tools that keep spam, abuse, and adversarial accounts off of Twitter.
If you want to work on a team that does some of the most interesting technical work at Twitter, protects people from real harm, and has executive-level visibility, then this is the team for you.
Who We Are
We’re a team of systems engineers that builds and maintains the core infrastructure helping to protect the health of the public conversation. We’re motivated by interesting technical challenges — our real-time feature computation and rules engine runs thousands of rules on half a million events per second — as well as internal and external customer impact. We work closely with our customers in Trust and Safety, User Services and Data Science to provide a platform for technical and nontechnical customers to deploy new features and rules at scale in seconds.
Our work sits at the intersection of a number of interesting disciplines. We do large-scale real-time event processing that needs to catch some of the smartest adversaries. Our flexible platform serves numerous important internal customers. And we build and maintain a grammar, compiler, and tooling for a Turing-complete rules and feature computation language.
We deploy continuously, write unit tests, and do code review.
