Since its beta launch in 2017, Proxy has experienced a higher growth rate than any other Twilio product in their first two quarters of life. Companies like GrubHub, Fedex, and Dominos have been onboarded in less than a couple of weeks! The next few quarters will be crucial for Proxy: We need to scale it and bring it to GA - Proxy is a key component of Twilio Flex and we are expecting a sharp traffic growth. Come join us if you get excited to see your product taking off across so many users. We need to build a whole new set of features - Proxy is evolving to become the next big Twilio Engagement Cloud pillar after Twilio Flex. Come join us if you are passionate about creating solutions that open new markets.
