Twitter is what’s happening and what people are talking about right now. For us, life's not about a job; it’s about purpose. We believe real change starts with a conversation. Here, your voice matters. Come as you are, and together, we'll do what's right (not what's easy) to serve the public conversation.

You and your team will partner closely with leaders across the company to plan, resource, and drive execution of top company priorities with a focus on speed, consistency, and predictability. This role is deeply cross-functional, and building positive relationships across Product, Engineering, Design, Research, Data Science, Legal, Policy, and other functions will be essential to the success of this leader.

As the central TPM function, we are tasked with delivering large, ambiguous initiatives that directly advance our mission. We build realistic execution plans, identify and mitigate risks, coordinate across engineering teams and supporting functions, communicate with clarity, and ultimately deliver predictable results.
