Twitter shows some directions for growth

TechCrunch pointed out a Twitter jobs page. The specific job TechCrunch mentioned* isn’t up there any more, but at the moment I write this, 18 others are (copied below). That’s considerable growth, given that the same page says Twitter has fewer than 30 current employees. Note the emphasis on search and the mention of Japan.

*Care and feeding of celebrity tweeters. Celebrity tweeting is actually a subject I’ve written and even been interviewed about several times.

As of this writing, the full list is:

Job Title Sort Location Sort Department Sort
Operations Engineer Technical Operations
Operations Engineer – Search Technical Operations
Product Manager Product
Product Manager – Platform (Consumer Internet) Product
Product Manager – Search Product
UI Designer/Developer Product

Software Engineer – Business Intelligence Engineering
