Twitter is looking for someone to help it shape what the future of work looks like.
According to a LinkedIn post, the company is seeking candidates to lead and grow its new "Future of Work Innovation" team. The modern tech workplace is in flux; big tech companies are grappling with how to retain employees in a tight talent market and when to bring workers back to the office during an unpredictable pandemic, if at all. Twitter's job announcement notes that the candidate will monitor workplace trends to ensure any employee can succeed at the company, keeping in mind "benefits, DEI, technology, the experience in our offices or working from home and more."
The candidate would join Twitter's existing "Work Transformation" leadership team within the human resources department, which already includes Real Estate & Workplace and Sustainability. The role will be public-facing as well, involving press interviews and workshops.
A number of big tech companies have positions specifically focused on the future of work. According to LinkedIn, Google's director of Future of Work & Workforce Planning started in 2019 and Meta's director of Future of Work Movement started in 2021.
