Vimeo, New York, NY

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


Vimeo OTT helps video creators grow thriving video businesses, from small content creators to major media partners. Creators distribute and sell their amazing videos through our customer-branded websites and apps on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, and Roku. Our core technology is a React and Rails web app through which creators administer multiple video products and viewers watch and pay for videos.

The Vimeo OTT Platform team is focused on creating an exceptionally scalable, rock-solid platform that can keep up with the growing business and provide the foundation for continued, long-term growth. We cover public and private APIs, infrastructure and operations, security, and integrations. It’s a broad range of responsibilities which translates directly to broad opportunities for working with different technologies and for making an impact.

OTT Engineering as a whole is an organization that loves to collaborate, encourages curiosity, and upholds technical excellence! We continuously ship small improvements to help our creators, 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 clean, well-tested, and performant code for our web platform, using Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and other languages when they are the right tool for the job.
  • Anchor big, important projects that affect the core architecture of the Vimeo OTT platform and grow our ability to deliver rich experiences to our users.
  • Build and leverage your technical expertise to lead collaborations 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.
  • Be an engineering leader for our team: mentor more junior engineers, collaborate on architectural decisions, and drive best practices and standards.
  • Be instrumental in growing the role of backend engineering for Viewer Experience, a full-stack team that works on making Vimeo OTT a world-class experience for viewers

  • You prioritize shipping user value and have the agile experience to help our whole team focus on our users.
