Seeing a few of these of interest on their website now. I'm not actively looking and like my current situation... but that's also when I'm most marketable and have least to lose. These are the only jobs I've seen that have piqued my interest in quite a while.
Most curious how the broader org is set up. I can intuit what the difference between the Data Science tracks (Analytics, Machine Learning, Foundation, and Inference) from the titles, but the JDs are all pretty similar. Curious how the different tracks work with one another (if at all) and with their business partners. Are Analytics-track Data Scientist are just over-titled dashboard monkeys or do they get to some interesting investigative and strategic work? TC baselines would be great as well.
Other topics of interest are:
* General culture and morale? I know this is highly team/manager specific, but wondering if you broadly respect people you've worked with.
* Paternity? I'm seeing 10 weeks for non-birth parents, not sure if this is up to date. Kids are on the medium-term (1-2 years) horizon, and 20 weeks paternity at Twitter would be tough to give up.
* PTO policy? Wife and I make healthy use of unlimited PTO (4-5 weeks) as DINKs (double-income-no-kids), but I'm sure babies will toss a grenade on that. In that case, I might prefer to just accrue and get paid out on it.
Current TC ~$190k, Senior Data Analyst with 5 YOE.
Edit and Follow up: I applied over the weekend and got a no thanks email midweek. Surprised they didn't at least send me a take home, but like I said, I like my current situation so not terribly torn up about it.
They are clearly hiring like crazy right now. Following this thread in case someone from Airbnb has more insight.
Also - that’s a pretty good tc for a data analyst. Is that standard for Twitter and what about just trying to get a ds job there?
