Help us get more voices into the conversation. We offer diversity programming for historically underrepresented students in tech, including: hands-on technical workshops to practice in real time, meetings with senior leadership and Business Resource Groups (BRGs) so you can find the places you belong, and professional development seminars designed to help you decide where to make your impact because #YouBelongInTech.
Your resume is your ticket to landing an interview at Twitter. It's worthwhile to give it a second look and make sure it shows what you're capable of.
Technical Interview 101
Don't worry about fancy algorithms or data structures. Focus on your approach to problem solving instead. It's more about how you draw your conclusions.
Non-tech Interview 101
Let go of your fears and doubts. Tell us what you know and what you can bring to the table.
Come prepared to write code. This might be on a whiteboard, chalkboard, on paper, a laptop, or via a code pair system.
By verbalizing your thoughts, the interviewer can understand your approach to the problem and jump in to guide you when necessary.
Tell us why
We want to know why you want to intern at Twitter. Having a thorough & specific response will demonstrate your interest & passion.
Come with questions
Being prepared with questions indicates your interest & enthusiasm. It’s a way to see if you can add value to our culture & your desired role.
When should I apply?
Now! Our application is open starting August 1, 2019, for our 2020 opportunities. The application closes on March 30, 2020.
Do I meet the requirements?
You should be: At least 18 years old, and enrolled in a two to four year academic institution working on an undergrad, grad, or PhD degree. Interns should also be able to complete the full 12-week internship program.
Where can I intern?
All over the place. We have internship opportunities across the globe in all our offices. We usually hire the most students to intern at our San Francisco, Boston, New York, Boulder, Seattle, London, and Singapore offices.
Do you hire international students?
Yes. Our Immigration Team works with students to get work authorization for both full-time roles and internships.
When does Twitter have internships?
Spring, summer, and fall. Twitter also supports students in co-op programs.
Are there internships for undergrad first-year students?
No, but we do have #EarlyBird, a weeklong experience at our San Francisco office. Learn more about #EarlyBird at t.co/IBelong.
How about undergrad second-year students?
Second-year students can apply to Twitter Academy, which is a 12-week summer internship in San Francisco. To learn more, please visit t.co/IBelong.
#EarlyBird and Twitter Academy are specifically designed for underrepresented groups (black, Hispanic/Latinx and/or Native American) in tech. Students of all backgrounds are welcome to apply.
What is the hiring process for full-time roles and internship opportunities?
Once your application is complete, our teams will review it. If a team is interested, we’ll reach out to begin the interview process. It goes like this:
First round, via phone or video conference
Second (and final) round: in person or via video conference
When will I hear back from TwitterU?
We are continuously sharing your resume with our hiring managers throughout the recruiting season for all our open full-time roles and internship opportunities. If a team is interested in your profile, TwitterU will reach out.
Why did I receive a HackerRank coding challenge?
You selected Software Engineering and/or Infrastructure Engineering from the career interests on the University Recruiting application. While it is not mandatory, HackerRank allows you to demonstrate your technical aptitude, and it is in your best interest to complete a coding challenge for roles at Twitter. Coding challenges do not guarantee a next round of interviews.
I’ve already interned at Twitter. Can I apply again?
Absolutely — the application process is the same.
I applied and didn’t get it — what now?
Try again! You can submit once per season. If you reapply next year for 2020 opportunities, your resume should show new experiences (like a new internship or extracurricular project).
Do I get paid?
Yes. We pay competitive salaries for both full-time roles and internship opportunities. Full-time candidates can receive relocation support, and interns receive a housing stipend.
What if I’m not enrolled in school right now?
If you aren't enrolled in school when you apply, you aren't eligible for our intern or recent graduate opportunities. Instead, visit t.co/careers to search and apply for opportunities to #JoinTheFlock
Where do I find you on campus?
The Twitter University team travels to campuses and conferences all around the world. Check t.co/connect for more info.
