Because you belong at Twilio
The Who, What, Where and Why
You are a PHP developer. You understand the basics of the HTTP request and response cycle. You've written enough PHP code to have opinions on different PHP web frameworks like Laravel, Yii, Drupal and Symfony. You love to teach others. You understand that teaching sometimes requires much patience, but are driven by the immense satisfaction of seeing the light bulb go off in your students' heads. You are endlessly curious about and excited by technology. You know that there are usually smarter folks in the room and you're eager to learn from them.
We encourage candidates who have served or participated in underrepresented developer communities to apply, as this aligns closely to our values and priorities.
You will help us inspire and equip developers fuel the future of communications. You'll be an active and authentic participant in the PHP community wherever they gather online and offline. For many of those developers, you will be "the face" of Twilio -- the person they ping when they need help. They will feel like VIPs because they know you. And when someone who works at Twilio needs to talk to that language community, they'll come to you. You'll attend, speak at and sponsor in-person events. You'll create content that breaks down the complex into the understandable. You'll tell stories with code, equipping developers with knowledge of tools and techniques, including but not limited to Twilio, that makes them better at their craft. You'll help create experiences which inspire developers to build amazing things. You can rely on the rich 10 year history of this team to help you develop any of these skills that you want to master.
Twilio's mission is to fuel the future of communications. The Developer Network is the team at Twilio whose mission is to catalyze the network of developers who will build the future of communications. The DevNet is comprised of three teams that work closely with one another. Developer Evangelists inspire and equip developers by going to the language-centric and geographic communities where developers gather. Developer Educators challenge and empower developers by crafting world-class docs and training. Community Developers encourage and amplify developers by cultivating a core community of Twilio developers. Together, these three teams introduce developers to Twilio, help them get their projects shipped and build strong end enduring friendships with them. Twilio is 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 have clear and concrete goals around inclusion and diversity that we believe make us one of the best places in the world to work, and we do not think we can be a successful business without a diverse set of people in our ranks.
While working remote, you will still enjoy our incredible perks: free Kindle when you build your Twilio app, monthly Kindle book reimbursement, monthly gym reimbursement, unlimited PTO, 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.
