The Twilio Magic

There’s a unique spirit to Twilio, manifested in who we are and how we work together.

These are the principles we use to build an impactful, high-growth business while staying true to ourselves:

How We Act

  • Be an owner - Owners know their business, embracing the good news and the bad. Owners sweat the details and “pick up the trash.” Owners think long term, and spend money wisely.
  • Empower others - We believe that unleashing human potential — both inside and outside our company — is the key to our success. Be humble and realize it’s not just about us. Invest in each other.
  • No shenanigans - Always act in an honest, direct, and transparent way.


How We Make Decisions

  • Wear the customer’s shoes - Spend the time to deeply understand customers, and solve problems from their perspective. Earn trust through every interaction.
  • Write it down - Our business is complex, so take the time to express yourself in prose — for your sake, and for the folks with whom you’re collaborating.
  • Ruthlessly prioritize - Prioritization helps break down complex problems, and provides clarity in the face of uncertainty. Decisions are progress, so make decisions with available information and keep learning.

How We Win

  • Be bold - We’re driven by a hunger to build a meaningful and impactful company. Embrace crazy ideas and remember, every big idea starts small.
  • Be inclusive - To achieve our goals, we need a diverse set of voices in the room. Build diverse teams, and seek out unique points of view.
  • Draw the owl - There’s no instruction book, it’s ours to write. Figure it out, ship it, and iterate. Invent the future, but don’t wing it.
  • Don’t settle - Expect the best from yourself and others, because there’s no feeling greater than being proud of our work. Hire the best people for every role.

The work of our lives
The underlying technology of Twilio stretches across apps, across businesses, and across continents to change the way the world communicates. Rising to this challenge and honoring this responsibility is the work of our lives.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Twilio

At Twilio, we strive to foster a culture rooted in diversity, equity, and inclusion, or DEI for short. To do this effectively, we are leveraging antiracism as a framework to activate leadership, teams, and individuals behind this critical work.

Our Commitment
Antiracism is “the practice of actively opposing racism and promoting racial equity.”

In 2020, Twilio committed to becoming an antiracist organization, leveraging our product, people, and resources to create a more just and equitable world. While “antiracist” may seem like a US-centric term, being antiracist is an action and a behavior that translates globally, because unfortunately, racism is universal. It is about how we intentionally and consistently show up to challenge injustices in our communities, systems, and policies while holding ourselves accountable. This looks different across departments and countries, but it’s about being conscious, consistent, frequent, intentional, and proactive about change.

Our Approach
It’s easy to focus our work solely on representation and hiring efforts. Instead, we need to take a more holistic approach by prioritizing equity and inclusion alongside our intention to build diverse teams.

Our approach includes an application of what we call the 4Cs. We want to be committed, curious, uncomfortable, and courageous in all aspects of DEI. We’ve modeled our approach to reflect these behaviors.
