R&D is growing at an amazing rate, so we need you to help us reimagine the education and training pathways that will enable all engineers to deliver features and address customer issues with quality and velocity.  We want our engineers to run fast with confidence. The Education and Training team is responsible for creating, curating and delivering the content to this end. Your job will be to create and populate the learning platform that will power engineering education and training programs across all of our offices around the globe.  You will transform newly hired engineers into production-ready Twilio builders, armed with the skills, knowledge, and experience required to ship with quality and velocity from the start.
