About Twitch

Launched in 2011, Twitch is a global community that comes together each day to create multiplayer entertainment: unique, live, unpredictable experiences created by the interactions of millions. We bring the joy of co-op to everything, from casual gaming to world-class esports to anime marathons, music, and art streams. Twitch also hosts TwitchCon, where we bring everyone together to celebrate, learn, and grow their personal interests and passions. We're always live at Twitch. Stay up to date on all things Twitch on Linkedin, Twitter and on our Blog.

About the Position

As a Senior Frontend Engineer on the Creator Collaboration team, you will be responsible for building and improving on features that help our broadcasters grow their audience by collaborating with other broadcasters. This year we shipped Squad Streams, a 4-person view for broadcasters playing together. Last year we made a number of improvements to Raiding and Events. We have big ideas for features that will allow broadcasters to work together in innovative ways, and we're looking for an engineer passionate about building user-facing experiences that are a joy to use.
