If you're in partnerships, customer support, marketing, or any other function you'll have a harder time getting things done.
2. Engineering quality varies massively by team. Some managers are running a tight ship and others just let their engineers do whatever they want. Seattle is corporate, Irvine is the army, and San Francisco is wild west.
If you're thinking of joining, great, if you like the team you'll be working with Twitch won't let you down.
Enough said, read the section before.
I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Twitch (Melbourne) in September 2015.
After response from Twitch, the HR people were very open and understanding, and Skype interviews went well. Long delays with follow up interviews with people from other departments. Entire process before they informed me they were going with someone else took five months.
While a lengthy process, apart from the delays everything from Twitch was very professional and very friendly and open.
