Software Engineer II, Core API

Vimeo, New York, NY

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


At Vimeo, we love designing and engineering tools that combine power with ease of use. Our engineers work on professional-grade video tools for creators and have the opportunity to do way more than write code.

We’re a small team that cares about collaboration, encourages curiosity, celebrates technical excellence, and is driven by careful attention to detail and planning for the future. We believe diversity of perspective and experience are key to building great technology and believe that the best way to iterate towards success is by taking care of ourselves, our families, our users, and one another.

What you’ll do:

  • Build and improve tools for video creators that combine high-quality user experience with performance and scalability
  • Work closely with our Design and Product teams to move projects from conception to launch, then iterate and test new features
  • Write clean, well-tested, and performant library and product code for our front-end platform, using JavaScript, Typescript, React and styled components
  • Grow technically and professionally in a collaborative and inclusive environment with opportunities to learn and share with others

Skills and knowledge you should possess:

  • A solid understanding of JavaScript, HTML5, CSS, and the DOM
  • A strong eye for product design and interactivity, and unwavering attention to detail
  • Big-picture thinking: understand how individual parts fit into the whole, and problem-solve for scale and efficiency
  • Experience with the React framework
  • Ability and willingness to work on the server side when necessary (PHP, Python, Java, Go, NodeJs, etc.)
  • Experience working with Restful APIs
  • An understanding of basic performance optimization for web applications
  • Are able to communicate and collaborate respectfully and effectively with both technical and non-technical teams
  • Pay great attention to detail and customer focus on every project no matter the size
