About the Role:
We are looking for a senior technical leader to support the next phase of team and product growth. You will be a key technical contributor at Twilio.
You will make significant architectural decisions and also work with teams on high performance/high availability distributed systems. We code in Python Twisted, PHP, Java, Ruby, and C and are looking for someone who can code and mentor a team of developers in one or more of these languages.
We are an engineering-driven company. We were founded by developers, our customers are developers, and we are passionate about building robust reliable software.
We care about automation of everything from our clusters and testing; to the employee on-boarding process. We can bring up a Twilio cluster that supports our complete voice and SMS stack running on hundreds of servers with the push of one button.
Lead the architecture for the project, review code for your team and scope projects and milestones. This represents the majority of your time.
Code critical components on your project
Write maintainable code with extensive test coverage in a professional software engineering environment with source control, a dev/stage/prod release cycle and continuous integration and deployment processes.
Drive your team towards successful deliveries of scalable, maintainable and secure code.
You have demonstrated the ability to lead engineers.
You have made significant architectural decisions and coded high performance/high availability distributed systems.
You treat engineering process as another product of the company and subject to similar development, testing and deployment methodologies as technology products.
You've used tools like Pivotal, Tracker, Trac, Jira, FogBugz, or plain old Post-it notes.
You can motivate and lead a team.
You are a prolific coder who can take a project and run with it.
Open source. You do it. You dig it.
You don’t just learn how things work, you learn why.
You read up on and experiment with new technologies because it’s in your nature, not because it’s a job requirement. You follow the Redis, Mongrel2 and the NoSQL drama with curiosity, interest, disdain, etc.
