UX Engineering Internship, Search and Recommendations - Summer 2021

Vimeo, New York, NY

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

Vimeo has billions of videos on its platform and millions of people performing searches on that content every month. The Search and Recommendations team works very hard on its search algorithm in order to surface relevant content to its users based on who they are and what their query is, but this is all secondary if the presenting page isn’t an appealing place for the user to explore results, add filters, and refine their query. Your task will be to make the search result page a modern, responsive experience, complete with new features like the ability to hover-play a video. Our team has thought of a lot of ways to make this page more functional and visually appealing but we’ll be leaning on you for some inspiration as well. Working with our team you’ll have the opportunity to learn what makes a good search interface as well as iteratively collaborate towards an optimal solution.

What you’ll do:

  • Develop wireframes to visualize and POC your high level designs
  • Write clean, portable, and well-documented React code
  • Work with Design, Product, and Engineering teams to help move projects from conception to launch
  • Iterate on your implementations and designs in a data driven environment
  • Gain domain knowledge related to Search by working with experienced search relevance engineers.
  • Grow technically by learning from talented full stack engineers

What we’re seeking:

  • You are familiar with Javascript and have used a frontend framework such as React, Angular, etc. to develop web applications
  • You have public code viewable on Github, Bitbucket, etc.
  • You have an understanding of REST APIs
  • You have an eye for product design and interactivity, and possess a strong attention to detail

Bonus points:

  • You are familiar with PHP, Python, Go, or Java
  • You have strong opinions about how Vimeo search can be improved
