How Much Twitter Pays Engineers, Product Managers, All Roles

  • Pay for most roles at Twitter is competitive with big tech companies like Facebook.
  • Business Insider sifted through 2021 data for thousands of jobs to determine how much Twitter is paying.
  • On Twitter, workers earn six figures, although some roles offer much higher pay.

Many key Twitter employees are paid as much as those at big tech companies, like Facebook and Google, and occasionally a little more.

A typical software engineer at Twitter can earn a salary of $255,000 and a senior director of engineering can earn upwards of $270,000, about the same as what Facebook pays and even more than Google, depending on level. experience, based on one year’s salary. The data. Insider pulled information from over 1,000 work visa applications Twitter filed with the US government in 2021.

These figures are only the base salary. Like most rival tech companies, Twitter’s total compensation programs include generous initial awards of restricted stock units, usually equal to salary, which are “refreshed” during annual performance reviews. While Twitter’s stock had been down for several months, leading some workers to consider moving elsewhere given the effect on their pay, the ongoing saga of Elon Musk attempting a hostile takeover of Twitter has had a positive impact on the company: its stock is on the rise. Twitter employees may not be very happy with Musk, but the fact that their actions are worth more is a positive.

So how much exactly do other Twitter employees earn?

It depends on the job, of course, and as remote working has become more common, to some extent on where the worker is based. Twitter, the first tech company to allow permanent remote work, now has full-time employees in 23 states, including Utah, Indiana, Georgia, Pennsylvania and North Dakota. The salary change appears to be less drastic between states with higher costs of living, such as California, than at Facebook. A Twitter software engineer in Georgia earns $171,000 in salary, according to visa data, which is average for the role. A senior software engineer in California only earns $10,000 more. Another engineer in Florida earns the top of the ladder at $218,000.

Visa information has limitations. It only covers jobs for which Twitter is hiring in other countries. No stock awards are included in the data, nor is experience and its influence on compensation. Still, it gives a solid insight into the company’s pay scale.
