The Who, What, Where and Why

Who?

We are looking for a talented and experienced technical leader who is excited at the opportunity to lead the JavaScript SDK team in delivering real-time audio/video capabilities for next generation internet and on-demand video applications.

You are the right fit for this role if you have successfully led teams in shipping client-side libraries that delight customers with great APIs while navigating the technical complexities of software architecture. You have worked with distributed teams on designing, implementing, and supporting these libraries. You’ve worked with product managers to balance long-term objectives with urgent short-term customer needs. You bring your deep experience with API and protocol design, as well as complex distributed systems and agile development practices to the table. You are passionate about operational excellence and know how to build an engineering organization that delivers it through continuous integration and rigorous testing.

What?

A successful day means you have worked with your team to:
  • Review code and merge PRs while challenging your teammates to maintain and elevate the high standards and best practices of your team
  • Advocate passionately for your customers
  • Elaborate on designs for customer-facing features with product managers and other tech leads to ensure a consistent product not only for your team’s JavaScript SDK, but Twilio’s mobile SDKs as well.
  • Anticipate future work items that your team will execute on to deliver customer success.
Before the end of the day, you make sure to connect with all your team, both onsite and remote, to ensure they are delivering on engineering and operational excellence.

Why?

The Programmable Video team enables builders to create unique video communication experiences connecting millions of participants across the globe. The JavaScript SDK Team moves swiftly with confidence in proving out upcoming APIs and responding to feature requests directly from customers on GitHub. Our code quickly finds its way to the vast array of browsers, platforms, and devices we support. The Programmable Video team develops and operates the worldwide infrastructure for video processing, media, recordings and compositions and is a high growth product in the Twilio catalog.

Where?

This position will be located in our beautiful headquarters at 375 Beale St in San Francisco, CA. You should expect the normal perks: catered meals, snacks, game room, ergonomic desks, etc. What you will also get to experience is a company that believes in small teams for maximum impact; that strives to balance work and home life, we know this is a marathon not a sprint; that builds an inclusive culture where we want all of our people to be comfortable and thrive. We seek out people who live by our values, who are challenged by problems, empower others to thrive, people who can draw the owl and not be beholden to one playbook.
