Who We Are:
The mission of the Search Infrastructure team is to provide best in class information retrieval (search) primitives for quickly and efficiently building new relevance-based products.
Towards this we build, scale and maintain the tweet search indexes. These indexes currently power a number of Twitter’s core products like the Home Timeline, Search Result Pages, Ranked Conversations, Data Products and many more.
We are currently in the process of building OmniSearch, a generic search-as-a-service system that will accelerate product development by enabling product engineers to quickly and easily build new search indexes for different types of entities that are not just Tweets.
Our infrastructure sits at the intersection of high scale distributed systems and machine learning infrastructure - as our infrastructure handles both indexing & serving search results as well as ingesting features and running machine-learning models that help rank the search results.
We are a tight-knit and supportive group that loves doing great work together, and we are looking for exceptional additions to our flock!
What You’ll Do:
You will lead the Search Infrastructure team, driving its technical strategy and roadmap – crafting success metrics in close collaboration with your peers across the company.
Day-to-day you will work on high-impact and challenging products, services, APIs, and libraries that are critical to Twitter’s product strategy.
You will bring a strong perspective that inspires change and motivates engineers to develop simple solutions to complex problems. Together with your team, you will collaborate with many engineering teams to develop best-in-class solutions that power various products through our infrastructure offering.
You will maintain a portfolio of work balancing long and short term objectives, defend the team’s roadmap, and build strong relationships throughout the consumer product organization.
Since the team is distributed you will meet regularly with Search Infrastructure engineers both in San Francisco and Boulder, as well as coach and mentor your team and support their professional growth and development.
