My name is Ben Cole and I am a Front End Engineer on the Core UI design systems team. Our team creates the building blocks which designers and engineers use to make user interfaces for Twitch products. While doing this foundational work, we try to balance things like accessibility considerations, brand guidelines, and the creativity of the Twitch community.
A big part of Twitch is community and self expression. We wanted to bring that into our products, and let our creators pick colors to customize UI elements which represent their channel and identity. Giving users the freedom to pick colors creates a challenge: how do we make sure that the chosen colors are clearly visible?
Wellness is about so much more than insurance. That’s why we combine the best of both worlds: Amazon’s competitive suite of health, retirement, and leave programs, plus Twitch-specific perks to keep your mind and body well.
Doing great work begins with taking care of ourselves. From wellness programs, to paid parental leave, to a healthy work-life balance, we’ll support you through whatever life throws your way.
Twitch is a remote-friendly workplace. And with global no-meeting days and company holidays, as well as modified work arrangements, we’ll help you work in the way that’s best for you.
Meaningful experiences empower us to do our best work. With a range of opportunities from coaching and mentorship to live workshops and e-learnings, Twitch is a place where you can grow yourself and your career.
