High-quality tools for hosting, sharing, and streaming videos


As a Microservices / Web Services Engineer, you’ll work closely with other members of the Core Infrastructure team to lay the groundwork for a microservices infrastructure at Vimeo. You'll help to decide core architecture, components, you’ll help carve off pieces of the Vimeo application into smaller services. We serve approximately 56 PB of video a month, 912 hours uploaded per day. You’ll help to ensure the Vimeo plumbing allows our developers to move quickly while maintaining stability, availability, and usability of the current system.

  • In your first 90 days, you'll be building frameworks to make our transition to services easier. You may embed with our API, data, or product teams to help them build new services and to answer questions about the framework you’re building.
  • By the end of your first year, there will be multiple services (written in Go) up and running that you were responsible for building. You’ll have worked with teams across Vimeo’s tech and product teams to ensure they are transitioning their services smoothly
  • Day-to-day, you'll be using your deep knowledge of microservice architecture, Golang, service oriented architecture to plan & build core components and architecture. You’ll build the infrastructure that is used throughout Vimeo to help up us shed legacy baggage and ensure our app is performant as we iterate and evolve.
