Twilio is energizing the $1.3 trillion telecom market. Come help us change communications forever.
About the job:
You're driven to iterate. Twilio ships code every six hours. You read that as a challenge.
You love building pages that deliver the best user experience on any modern browser. You love front end frameworks, but use them sparingly.
Author fast-rendering reusable components using HTML/CSS.
Design and build a page to help communicate various parts of our brand and messaging.
Play well with others. Collaborate across the company and interact with our customers (software engineers) to define, design and ship new stuff.
Juggle multiple projects and stay on top of tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment. Your turnaround time will be days to weeks for projects, and you will keep projects moving quickly through the pipeline.
Drive the front-of-the-funnel engagement through user activation, as well as ensuring that all things we ship are compatible and usable cross-platform.
Provide leadership to the front end development team and drive/grow processes and best-practices for a growing creative-dev team.
Be the technical eyes & ears of the brand team to inform on best new technology & implementation ideas.
Experience working in a high-velocity environment where new pages are being cut on a weekly basis.
6+ years of experience in chopping website/marketing collateral.
Experience working on a production pipeline from concept to engineering handoff; you love shipping beautiful products.
Tuned attention to details. You sweat the little things.
You are obsessed (borderline compulsive actually) about making user interfaces look right and work right. You dig the science of user experience and have opinions.
You love to make an impact and thrive in small, collaborative, energetic teams.
You communicate well out loud, on paper and in code.
Nice to have:
Experience working in short, agile, iterative development cycles.
CS background is preferred, but it's more important that you are passionate about design and usability.
Competitive benefits, including medical, dental, vision, 401k and life insurance.
An Amazon Kindle, $30/month to spend on books and a Twilio track jacket after demoing your first Twilio app in front of the company!
Pre-tax commuter benefits.
Catered lunches and a weekly team dinner featuring invited technology and entrepreneurial speakers.
Excellent gear (we ❤ Apple computers and big monitors — two if you need 'em).
A strong belief in life/work balance.
