As Twitch continues to grow, leadership strives to maintain a startup mentality and culture. Management is hands-on in advice, support, and availability—but hands-off when it comes to work style. Managers find that employees who are free to work out issues in their own way and develop valuable skills become big assets for the future.
Founded in 2011, Twitch set out to create a community and social video platform for gamers, developers, and publishers, and it quickly became the most popular outlet of its kind. Today, 1.7 million Twitch broadcasters stream videos to 100 million-plus viewers every month, representing a compelling new social network connecting friends and fans to unique content.
