Twilio isn’t just about doing—it wants to build things. In fact, the company itself is a platform for developers and engineers to build their own applications. Twilio’s flexible technology lets companies construct personalized business solutions that enhance customer-service interaction and profitability. The company’s products are committed to improving business connectivity and communication for clients who are looking to expand their businesses to major markets.
“Twilio is very well-known as a very simple API to learn and to use. You don’t have to be an expert engineer to use the platform—everyone can learn the basics to build a Twilio application,” emphasizes Gowri Grewal, a Twilio employee who works with the sales and engineering teams to help produce a product that is top notch.
She also emphasizes the important skills employees at Twilio must have to stay active members of the company: “Sales teams juggle multiple customer engagements that are all unique. Time management and the ability to context switch is really critical.”
In return, Twilio offers equal treatment of all employees (including interns!), plenty of opportunity for learning and growth, and the chance to wind down from time to time; Twilio employees have created their own clubs, including a women’s group, a running club, and even a motorcycle group. Recently, the company even celebrated Oktoberfest!
