Twitter receives a crushing amount of partnership opportunities on a regular basis—it’s a good problem to have yet until now there has been nobody on staff dedicated solely to business development. Things are changing. We hired Kevin Thau as our Director of Mobile Business Development late last month. Although his title includes the word “mobile” Kevin is digging in on several fronts since he’s our first official business development guru.
For now, Kevin is assessing all opportunities, picking up ongoing threads, and also actively working on our mobile business strategy. If you send email to our partner address or to kevin (at) twitter.com then you will be corresponding with the intrepid Mr. Thau. Kevin joins us from Buzzwire and was at Openwave introducing the world to the mobile web at the very beginning. At Openwave, Kevin worked with carriers, device manufacturers, and content providers to develop an ecosystem integral to today’s global wireless data business.
PS—We still have job openings for a business product manager and a director of strategic partnerships as well as systems and software engineers, operations engineers, a designer, and a founder associate. Check out our jobs page for more information.
