See yourself at Twilio

Join the team as Twilio’s next Software Engineer in the Customer Developer Experience Platform.

Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we have presence throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We're on a journey to becoming a global company that actively opposes racism and all forms of oppression and bias. At Twilio, we support diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business.

About the job

This position is needed to build and scale systems in Twilio’s Conversations and Authy division.

As a Software Engineer in this group, you’ll be responsible for partnering with product managers, architects, and other engineers to develop new services and scale existing ones to support Twilio’s Customer Developer Experience Platform. The day-to-day will revolve around designing and implementing new Java services, interacting cross-team to develop exciting new features, and enhancing existing services to meet the demands of our customers.

Responsibilities

In this role, you’ll:

  • Build APIs, storage systems, cache layers and workflows to support complex business logic.
  • Write top class code and cover it with unit, integration, cluster and end-to-end tests to achieve high levels of code coverage and detect defects early.
  • Participate in agile development with rapid, iterative, frequently deployed applications.
  • Collaborate with other engineers, product managers, designers, and architects both inside and outside of the immediate team.
  • Learn Twilio’s distributed system and microservice architecture through Senior Engineers, Tech Leads, and Architects.

Qualifications

Not all applicants will have skills that match a job description exactly. Twilio values diverse experiences in other industries, and we encourage everyone who meets the required qualifications to apply. While having “desired” qualifications make for a strong candidate, we encourage applicants with alternative experiences to also apply. If your career is just starting or hasn't followed a traditional path, don't let that stop you from considering Twilio. We are always looking for people who will bring something new to the table!

Required:

  • 0-2 years of experience with building, maintaining and scaling backend services in Java.
  • Strong understanding of data structures and algorithms and Java fundamentals.
  • Strong fundamental knowledge of software development best practices for RESTful service implementation.
  • Oral and written communication skills: be prepared to frequently propose and discuss ideas and implementation with your teammates, as well as involving other stakeholders in Twilio.
  • Curious mindset - we’re not looking for someone with all the answers, but rather someone who is prepared to grow with us.
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Engineering or a related field, or equivalent training, fellowship, or work experience.

Desired:

  • Prior knowledge and experience with Dropwizard or Spring Boot applications.
  • Experience with AWS services - DynamoDB, SQS, and more.
  • Observability tooling (Prometheus, Datadog, Rollbar…).

Location

This role will be based in our Tallinn, Estonia office or remotely in Estonia.

What We Offer

There are many benefits to working at Twilio, including, in addition to competitive pay, things like generous time-off, ample parental and wellness leave, healthcare, a retirement savings program, and much more. Offerings vary by location.
