We believe the people who build Twitter should be representative of those that use the platform, this includes people from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented within tech such as women, black, Latinx, Native American, etc, just to name a few. We'd like to highly encourage these, and all the folks from similar backgrounds, to apply for this apprenticeship.

Who We Are
The client engineering team at Twitter encompass all engineering efforts to build the best iOS, Android, and web experiences for millions of people coming to Twitter every single day. We believe in the following set of principles to ensure we're giving everyone the best experience:
* Be respectful of the differences between usage patterns across the globe. Access to bandwidth, memory, and storage vary across different geographies.
* Be curious about why things are the way they are. We inform ourselves with data to understand how and if things are working well to ensure we're moving in the right direction.
* Be open to conversation. We think we're better together and can make better decisions when involving others to have a conversation about something rather than deciding in isolation.
