About this job
Despite being humble and modest about your skills, you are an awesomely talented designer that knows the web inside and out. You’re the creative, go-to, idea-person when your friends and colleagues want something fun and unique to tackle. You’re passionate about Twitter; you eat tweets for breakfast and dish them back out just the same. You have ideas spilling out of your head for design tweaks, improvements, and additions to the Twitter user experience seen and used by millions of people. Your ideas are the right kind of balance between crazy and brilliant that they just might work.
 
If this describes you to a T (as in Twitter), we’re looking for you. We want someone who loves both the conceptual side and the implementation side of design projects. You will work with Design, Product, and Engineering teams to create awesome interfaces that facilitate what users want to do, and delight them along the way. You will think of, concept, and implement original ideas that bring simplicity and ease of use to complex design issues of a real time communications and information network. In short, this job may be the largest design challenge of your life so far, but also the most rewarding.
