Twitter announced on Tuesday (25 Jan) that it plans to hire more engineers for its Singapore office by at least two fold from the current strength, bringing the numbers to more than a 100 by 2023.
This investment by Twitter is in partnership with Digital Industry Singapore (DISG) to strengthen their capabilities in engineering globally as well as improve the overall user experience in terms of availability and reliability.
Manpower required in these roles
The company will be looking to hire manpower of different roles in a few departments and these includes:
- Data science
- Machine learning
- Product management.
To work with global engineering teams
Twitter also mentioned that they will be working with other engineering teams from across the globe and will focus more on certain core advancements which will increase the speed and reliability of the platform by developing new product experiences for their users.
Their first office in Singapore, which is also their regional office, is located at Market Street, inside CapitaGreen building and it was first set up in February 2020.
Inside the building also lies Twitter’s engineering hub based in Singapore.
Wants to attract new talent
Twitter said that they are also looking to attract new talents to join them as well as retain the talents that they already have which are world class.
This is after the success of the current centre’s establishment where teams of high quality were built and their technical capabilities in areas such as machine learning were made stronger.
DISG also added that because of Twitter’s decision to expand its engineering centre in Singapore, more Singaporeans will be given the opportunity to work and be a part of exciting new technologies which are meant for markets of a global scale and will have colleagues all around the world.
