When Elon Musk took control of Twitter, the social media platform had more than 7,400 employees on its payroll. However, in the following weeks, Musk would continue to consolidate the workforce, Almost half of all Twitter employees have been fired, thousands of contractual content coordinators, and thousands of other employees forced to resign. In all, as of 8:30 AM on Monday (Indian Standard Time), Twitter has just over 2,700 employees on the payroll.
Elon Musk, in an all-out meeting with the rest of the Twitter staff, announced this He has completed terminations and is now actively looking for employment People. Musk and his team of recruiters have already begun hiring engineers and salespeople for the advertising sales force. Some sales staff who have chosen to stay after Musk’s Twitter ultimatum 2.0 They were reportedly demobilized soon after.
The number of engineers coming out of Twitter is so huge, that Musk has one simple criterion for his hiring team that he follows — hire anyone who actually knows how to write software, regardless of their qualifications and work experience.
Musk also asked existing Twitter employees for referrals, and that under his ownership and management, Twitter would be “more engineering-driven.” Design and product management will still be very important and report to me, but those who write great code will make up the majority of the team and “have the most influence”.
The Twitter careers page did not list any job postings at the time of writing this article. There were more than 100 job openings before Musk took office.
Musk may have to quickly hire engineers to keep Twitter’s systems working properly. A Washington Post report quoted a former employee as saying that other layoffs and departures “have occurred Many critical systems are left down to two engineers, one engineer, or even zero. The Verge report said the departments that were broken up include Twitter’s “traffic and front-end teams that route engineering requests to the correct back-end services.”
