Jobs @ Twenty

Data Scientist
  • San Francisco
  • Data
  • Full-Time

Twenty® was formed out of a need for today’s always-connected generation to spend more time with friends in real life, instead of through a screen. 30% of Millennials say they're lonely. 22% say they don't have a single friend. Our mission is to increase human connection by making it easier to make plans and meet up. Instead of measuring the time our users spend in-app, our most important KPI is how often Twenty friends get together.

Twenty users can see which friends are around, what they are doing, discover nearby events, and coordinate plans to meet up. Privacy is at the core of the Twenty experience and users are able to choose when and with whom they share.

Our strategic partners, Live Nation, Endeavor (formerly WME/IMG), Roc Nation, TAO Group and DJ Khaled, believe Twenty’s technology is fundamentally changing the way their fans discover and experience events. Arianna Huffington and Rande Gerber recently joined the Company’s Board of Directors. With over 2 million users & 30 team members, Twenty has offices in San Francisco, New York, and Utah.
