I have been working at Twitch full-time
Twitch is a business, and the qualified intelligent people I work with every day remind me of that. Yes, they have a cool office in San Francisco and fun events but everyone's here to get stuff done. If you're just here to play games, look elsewhere would be my advice.
OK so the good stuff, pay is pretty good for non-tech people. I hear some tech friends complaining but it's probably hard to compare anyone against Google or Apple where they're printing money.
A lot of the company is organized vertically so we get things done more quickly, at the cost of sometimes duplicated effort.
Upper management is very transparent and willing to field 2 dozen questions in real time in front of the company every week.
Getting data is too hard. BI tools are insufficient and haven't improved in years. Otherwise Twitch is good.
Advice to Management
Invest in better BI tech / people so the rest of us can do our jobs more easily.

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Twitch (Seattle, WA (US)) in June 2020.
First contacted by the recruiter for a 20 min phone screen.
Then a video screen with a manager. Talked about myself, my experience, and why Twitch.
At last it was the virtual onsite - tiring but had very good conversations.
Overall the interviewers are super chill and recruiters are very helpful along the way.
