Day In The Life: Being A Twilio Software Engineer

Twilio is hiring for a Software Engineer. We’re looking for a DOer who can help build critical services for the Twilio API, work directly with customers, and across teams to scale and constantly improve our API.  Apply here.

As a senior in college, Kevin Burke harnessed the power of Twilio SMS to inform his fellow classmates of pressing matters — like if the university snack bar was serving taquitos or onion rings that night.

Kevin’s snack bar app was the first thing he built with Twilio, and the app landed him a job at Twilio right out of school as a software engineer. Now two years later, Kevin focuses on scaling the Twilio API, building developer tools and maintaining Twilio’s backend infrastructure.

For this Day In The Life series, we talked with Kevin about his work, his fellow Twilions, and what he looks forward to building.
