    I worked at Twitch full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Video stack is truly cutting edge. There are not many jobs which allow you to push the boundaries of technology, this is one of them. I learned more at Twitch than I ever imagined and I'd happily work there again if I had to make my decision over again.

    Cons

    There really aren't many. Amazon integration is pretty thin and Twitch runs on its own. There was some dissatisfaction as I was leaving but it seemed to affect other teams more than my own.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your best people and they'll take care of everyone else.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Twitch (Melbourne) in September 2015.

    Interview

    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.
