Twitch is a giant in the livestreaming industry.

While its competitors YouTube Gaming Live and Facebook Gaming continue to grow, Twitch remains the dominant player in live content. Viewers watched almost two billion hours of content on the platform in October, nearly quadruple that of Facebook Gaming, according to, a streaming analytics platform.

The Amazon-owned company is now staffing up in the US for roles including senior design technologist, director of partnership, and head of premium music content, according to its jobs board.
