About Us

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 Role

The Knowledge Graph team operates essential infrastructure which supports search, browse, and following functionality on Twitch.tv. Many of our systems are tier-1 and if they are down Twitch is also down. The code we write is designed to support incredible TPS while remaining highly available. Some of our systems are called more than 100,000 times every second of every day to provide information like which streams are live, and to provide category, game, and stream metadata. The graph team is also always building new infrastructure to support new search and browse experiences.

Twitch is uniquely positioned to dictate the future of multiplayer entertainment. If this future excites you, come join us!
