Vimeo OTT helps video creators grow thriving video businesses, from small content creators to major media partners. Creators distribute and sell amazing videos through our customer-branded websites and apps on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, Roku, Samsung Tizen, and Xbox. Our core technology is a React and Rails web app that powers tools for thousands of creators and APIs serving millions of viewers.

Our engineering team is a small-but-mighty group of craftspeople who love to collaborate, encourage curiosity, and uphold technical excellence. We continuously deliver small, impactful improvements, always striving to make world-class software that empowers people to build their business with video. We believe diversity of perspective and experience are key to building great tech.

  • Write well-tested and performant code for our web platform using Ruby, JavaScript, and other languages when they are the right tool for the job.
  • Make significant contributions to big projects that affect the core architecture of the Vimeo OTT platform and expand our ability to deliver rich experiences to our users.
  • Grow your technical expertise to become an effective collaborator with other teams on complex integrations and innovative technical solutions.
  • Improve performance, monitoring, alerting, and security for our services. Participate in our on-call rotation.
  • Develop, refine, and uphold best practices and standards, and become a trusted engineering leader.

  • You’re an expert in modern web development concepts and best practices.
  • You prioritize shipping user value and focus on making an impact for users.
  • You always strive to write high-quality code and automated tests, and you care about the details.
