About the Program


ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The mission of Twitter’s rotational Associate Product Manager program is to develop the next generation of product leaders. Through training, mentorship, and rotating assignments within various product teams at Twitter, APMs gain a unique view into how we design products and bring them to market.

#RESPONSIBILITY

APMs work at the intersection of engineering, design, marketing, and sales. As an APM, you will perform market and competitor analyses, recommend priorities for your team’s roadmap, articulate your product vision to stakeholders, and ship your ideas to millions of users.

#COMMUNITY

APMs form a tight-knit community within Twitter, with fun social events as well as opportunities to see and learn from each other’s work. They are also warmly welcomed into the Twitter’s Product Management community, attending monthly events together.

   Terri  @tcburning      Before Twitter, I studied computer science at NYU and led the largest student technology organization in NYC. Through my courses, I became fascinated with the process of bringing new products to life. Now I work on Twitter's Onboarding team, helping to ship features for Twitter's consumer-facing product. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to work at a company that's building a product I use every day.

   Dennis  @zhaomein       I studied computer science at UC Berkeley and helped teach the undergraduate data structures course. This led me to build products to address teaching at scale. Now, as an APM at Twitter, I work primarily on brand advertising - so far, I've worked on improving video view rates and ad campaign creation tools! I'm really excited to be working on this team at Twitter.

   Jesar  @jesarshah       I studied business and computer science at UC Berkeley. My classes challenged me technically and creatively. I knew that I wanted to work in a space that would do the same and the APM program was the perfect fit. My favorite part about being an APM is the amount of mentorship and guidance we get. There's support for you along every step of your journey.

   Wally  @wgnyc      I studied political science at Duke University, and previously worked in consulting.  I love working at Twitter because the company feels small, but has such a large impact on the world we live in. There's always an opportunity to take on more responsibility and grow professionally. Not to mention, you're building products that make you excited to come to work each day.

FAQs


FAQs


FAQ


What is the structure of the APM program and how long is it?

APMs go through two, one year rotations on various product teams across Twitter. In total, the program is 2 years.


How many APMs are there?

Each class will have 4-6 APMs.


What are some examples of what the rotations could be?

Your rotation might involve improving the new user experience, defining innovative advertising formats, working on our publisher platform tools, or helping creators engage with their audiences on Twitter. The possibilities are endless!


What kind of candidates are you looking for?

We are looking for BA/BS candidates (preferably class of 2018) who have a desire to develop a career in product management with a strong focus on developing social consumer, advertising, and developer products at scale. Preference is given to those who have demonstrated experience working with and have knowledge of consumer behaviors, a strong quantitative background to support data-informed decision making, and an ability to plan and drive execution to grow a product from concept to success. We are interested in candidates with strong interpersonal skills, technical acumen, the ability to work well in a cross-functional team environment, and exceptional communication and presentation skills. Passion for media and social platforms is preferred.


What kind of learning/mentorship opportunities are available to APMs?

When APMs first start, they go through an intro to product management bootcamp together. Following that, there are monthly learning sessions with executives and senior PMs to continue to develop the necessary skills to succeed as product managers. APMs have two mentors: a PM mentor and an executive mentor with whom they meet regularly. In addition, APMs participate in PM Skillshare (our weekly PM knowledge-sharing session) as well as in courses at Twitter University (our internal education platform).  


What happens after the program/how do you get placed on a permanent team?

After completing both rotations, APMs will find a permanent home as a product manager either on one of the teams they rotated through or on another team of interest.
