Interviewing for a security assurance analyst position with Twilio and some of the stuff I’ve been reading makes me nervous. Any Twilio people here that can speak to overall company culture and work/life balance?

The pace is fast and the bar is high. That said, there is a big emphasis on balance. Everyone respects your life outside of work and we have small things like no-meeting Fridays.

If you’re having trouble or second thoughts - reach out to the recruiter you’re working with when I went through the process they helped me out and set me up with other people (outside of the process) to talk to.

Just an example: I left mid day during a huge project to go to my kid’s parent teacher conference. No questions asked and was told to have a good weekend.

You will be busy, but when you need focus time or time away to take care of life - you’ll have the support.

Been at twilio for less than a year but it's the best place I've ever worked. Culture is great though there are issues due to massive employee growth over the last few years but overall it's great. Security is of utmost importance in this space so I'd imagine there may be some pressure but I'd imagine less than at a smaller company. Everyone I've met here has been super helpful all while being remote.

At the end of the day I think you should trust the feeling you’re getting from the interview process. I’m connected with a few people on LinkedIn who work there and seem to really enjoy it. I’m sure experience varies from person to person but it’s definitely possible to have a positive experience.

I think Twilio is one of those company cultures in which a person is either going to thrive or be miserable. I would ask questions and try to get a sense of it during the interviews.

It's a growing company so there will be pressure. But I am sure there will be support when needed. Did you end up taking the offer?

Any tips on how to negotiate a better job title? I’ve received an offer and after learning more about the rigor of the role/what I’m bringing to the table, the original title seems quite reductive. Plus, I don’t think others at the company have that title (Junior product marketer) for it to be an issue.

It’s entry level but I have 5 yrs of exp. Also, my last role was more senior (Associate Manager) so it looks like a step backwards for my career. Any tips appreciated!

Hi Fishes,

I don't think I would want a career in this as I feel it would require coding at some point which I don't want to.

On the other hand, I'm looking to switch my domain into Product Management.. currently don't have any offer or experience related to PM role.

I'm confused if should I go with the offer in hand or wait till I get a PM role.
