Twitter executives have remained dismissive around questions regarding its IPO, offering few hints. The job position may serve as the best evidence to date of the company's intention to file to go public.

CEO Dick Costolo has said that company management is not focusing on an IPO. Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who sits on the board and is CEO of Square, has told Bloomberg in recent months that the company is "not even thinking" of an IPO.

Twitter's IPO is expected to be the biggest consumer Internet IPO since Facebook's in May 2012. Twitter IPO watchers have long-rumored it to happen by early 2014.

The company's valuation has swelled to a reported $10 billion.
