Sr Software Engineer- Core Services


Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Where and Why


Twilio is looking for a Senior Software Engineer who is excited about solving some of the hardest problems at Twilio: enabling our customers to grow and expand globally by giving developers simple APIs to access the world’s communication channels.

You like to think at scale and design, develop and operate production microservices that meet goals of low latency, high availability, resiliency and quality in a cloud environment. You bring experience with complex distributed systems, working in a Java production system, and are comfortable with Python. Even better, you have expertise in complex data modeling, have experience of data pipeline (maybe Kafka? Kinesis? Spark?), and you are comfortable with managing large database clusters (e.g. mysql, postgres), and next generation distributed data stores.

Bachelors degree or equivalent experience required.  


A great day for you would be working alongside a small and collaborative team, white-boarding ideas, building APIs used by all Twilio customers, as well as constantly improving services that power Twilio’s top products and also generate significant revenue. We are working on enabling millions of developers to use Twilio across the world and help companies expand their business globally. At the same time, you will be helping more junior developers by mentoring them, providing guidance, and positively influencing their careers.


The Phone Numbers team enables our customers to scale their business in as many countries as possible. From Uber’s anonymous driver communications, to AirBnB’s host identity verification or eHarmony's connecting matches over the phone, businesses make their communications more relevant and compelling using Twilio.

For the developer who just signed up to try out a new idea and got their first Twilio numbers to gigantic companies who run their products in over 100 countries and use tens of thousands of phone numbers; our team simplifies getting reliable Phone Numbers in an ever growing list of countries is the highest factor of growth for the whole company.

Twilio is empowering the world’s developers with modern communication in order to build better applications.

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. Come join us.  


This position will be located in our beautiful office at 375 Beale Street in San Francisco. You will enjoy our incredible perks: catered meals, snacks, game room, ergonomic desks, massages, education / health credits, Wednesday Night dinners, bi-weekly All Hands and more. 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, 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, people who can draw the owl and not be beholden to one playbook.
