Otta's take on Twilio

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Traditionally, it has been difficult for businesses to establish communications systems in-house. Twilio was founded from frustration with this expensive and cumbersome process, providing easy-to-use APIs to let businesses send and receive telephone and text communications.

From these beginnings, the company has expanded through acquisitions and product development to provide a suite of services around market data and customer engagement. It is now a market leader in this space, and has developed a customer base of more than 150,000 businesses including enterprise brands such as Deliveroo, Duolingo and Toyota.

With that said, aggressive expansion and lack of maturity in some of its products has impacted the company's efficiency, and like many of its peers it has been forced to restructure heavily to remain competitive. Coming out of this restructuring, the company will focus on profitability, streamlining decision making and R&D to put itself in good stead for future success.

Company values

  • We are Builders: We love hard problems and believe in the indomitable power of people's ability to create a better world through ingenuity and resourcefulness. We reject the “can’t be done” and believe bold ideas and fearless iteration can resolve the most challenging problems for our customers and the world they operate in
  • We are Owners: We take accountability and see things through. We take the long view, sweat the details, and think about how our work makes Twilio better every day. We recognize that we and others do our best work when we feel both empowered and accountable for outcomes
  • We are Curious: We see ourselves as works in progress. We know that we don’t have all the answers, humbly seek the truth, and strive to get better every day. As individuals, as a company, and in our products, we seek continual progress over perfection and acknowledge shortcomings as a matter of fact. Progress comes not from avoiding mistakes or hard truths, but in learning from them
  • We are Positrons: A positron is a positively charged electron. We are genuinely excited to serve and help others. We believe that positive energy is contagious and caring is critical. We seek to be bright spots for the people around us in every interaction, and we stand up and work for what we believe is good and right for our customers, our company, our communities, and the world at large

Diversity & Inclusion at Twilio

  • Building diverse teams: We thrive when we welcome a diversity of identities, experiences, and perspectives to the team. We know that building diverse teams requires us to dismantle barriers and address the opportunity gap, and we are driving programs to do just that.
  • Creating equitable experiences: Building more diverse teams is only part of the equation. It is equally important that we promote equity within our workplace as well
  • Cultivating inclusive environments: Every team member plays a role in fostering an environment that is psychologically safe and inclusive. This is a significant responsibility for our managers and leaders, who hold influence and power. Therefore, we are driving educational and engagement opportunities to activate inclusive leadership behaviors throughout the organization
