Senior Software Engineer, Serverless

Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Why and Where

Twilio is looking for versatile Software Engineers with a product-oriented mindset to join us. You’re excited about the possibilities of Serverless computing, and by the idea of making it easier for developers to build and deploy their ideas on Twilio. Our current products include everything from the large-scale distributed backend that makes up Twilio Runtime to the complex drag-and-drop visual interface of Twilio Studio.  

Who?

You have:

  • In-depth knowledge of at least one programming language, and some experience with object-oriented programming
  • Experience working with and operating SQL databases, and NoSQL a plus
  • Experience with distributed systems and service-oriented architectures
  • You like to dive in and work up and down the technology stack
  • Owned and operated services end-to-end, from debugging and testing to release management and monitoring
  • The ability to communicate well- in person, on paper, or in code. You can explain technical concepts to product managers, other engineers, and support
  • Empathy for your customers and teammates
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or similar experience

What?

As a Senior Software Engineer, you will:

  • Work with other engineering teams and with members of the product organisation to distill internal and customer needs into requirements and tech specs 
  • Build new features
  • Architect new systems and design APIs with a focus on scalability, testability, and maintainability
  • Help resolve technical issues and blockers for internal and external customers
  • Drive high engineering standards on the team through code review, automated testing, and mentoring. We care what our code looks like, and you should too
  • Collaborate with colleagues on a small, energetic team

Why?

The Twilio platform enables companies to integrate communications directly into their applications via simple cloud APIs and with on-demand global reach. But the infrastructure and operations required to deploy and scale software applications can be a hurdle. Our serverless products, including Twilio Studio, Twilio Functions, and more, empower our customers to quickly bring their ideas to prototype to production to global scale, all on top of Twilio's elastic cloud infrastructure.

Twilio is a company that is empowering the world’s developers with modern communication in order to build better applications.  The Engineering team plays an integral role in building out the products that allow our developer community to meet their communication needs. 

Twilio is truly unique; we are a company committed to your growth, your learning, your development, and your entire employee experience.  We only win when our employees succeed and we're dedicated to helping you develop your strengths. We invest in weeks dedicated to tackling hard problems and creating your own ideas. We have a cultural foundation built on diversity, inclusion, and innovation and we want you and your ideas to thrive at Twilio.

Where?

This position will be located in our beautiful office at 1801 California St. in Denver, CO. You will enjoy our incredible perks: catered meals, snacks, game room, ergonomic desks, access to our building fitness center, monthly All Hands and more. 

You will also be part of a company that believes in small teams for maximum impact; that strives to balance work and home life; that understands that this is a marathon, not a sprint; that continuously and purposefully builds an inclusive culture where everyone is able to do and be the best version of themselves. We seek people who naturally demonstrate our values, who are challenged by problems, empower others to thrive, and can draw the owl and not be beholden to one playbook.
