Twilio (NYSE: TWLO) expects to add more than 50 people to its Atlanta office over the next few years, hiring for roles across the organization including sales, human resources, and engineering. The expanding presence on the East Coast reflects Twilio’s rapid growth nationally and its commitment to engage with some of the most innovative developer communities and businesses in the country.
“Incredible momentum in Twilio’s customer base is fueling our need to expand the company’s presence in new regions,” said George Hu, chief operating officer at Twilio. “Atlanta brings us closer to a thriving business community and gives Twilio access to highly skilled talent — making it an ideal location for Twilio’s next office. We look forward to building the team in Atlanta.”

The company has more than 1,000 employees globally and 16 locations internationally including offices in San Francisco, Mountain View, New York, Atlanta, Bogota, London, Dublin, Madrid, Tallinn, Melbourne, Munich, Berlin, Malmo, Hong Kong, and Singapore, Sydney.
