Twitter To Expand Singapore Office, Hire More Staff

SINGAPORE – Even though working from home has become more prevalent during the COVID-19 pandemic, Twitter’s Asia Pacific headquarters will undergo an office expansion to support to its growing workforce and to provide staff with better flexibility and choice in where and how they work, reported The New Straits Times on Tuesday afternoon (25 January, SGT).

The office expansion comes as the social media giant announced that it intends to double its engineers at its engineering hub in Singapore to over 100 by the end of 2023. At present, it has 50 engineers, data scientists, product managers, and researchers at its Asia Pacific engineering centre, which was established 2 years ago.

Notably, Twitter’s engineering hub is situated at the firm’s Asia Pacific HQ in the CapitaGreen building along Shenton Way.

The new engineers will be based in Singapore, but they will work on global initiatives. They will have roles in machine learning, data science, engineering, and product management. Among other projects, the local team will work on developing new product experiences, as well as increasing the speed and reliability of the social media platform.

While the Engineering Centre’s Director Silvanus Lee did not reveal a rough salary range for the new hires, he said the benefits and compensation will be competitive across all roles to lure world-class talent.

“There is always a shortage for high-calibre technical talent in engineering and data science. The pandemic has also created a greater demand for such skill sets as more businesses digitalise,” he noted.

“However, we have very high conviction in the strength of talent and the tech ecosystem here. Singapore is well-positioned as a technology hub and there are tremendous opportunities that will continue to attract the best technology talent. This bodes very well for the tech ecosystem as a whole,” added Silvanus.
