Microservices Engineer

| Greater NYC Area

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.

What you'll do:

  • In your first 30 days, you'll dive into our LAMP monolith. You'll help to plan our microservice implementation and design, and work with the rest of the team to ensure the plan is workable.
  • 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.

What we're expecting:

  • Experience working high-throughput, high-availability, and cloud-deployed distributed applications
  • Microservice implementation and design experience
  • Production-level Golang and PHP programming
  • SOA and service deployment
  • Deep understanding of REST and how the Internet works: TCP/IP, HTTP, TLS, DNS
  • Strong Linux/UNIX fundamentals

Bonus points:

  • Experience with Linux containerization technologies
  • Experience with cluster managers like Mesos, Kubernetes, or Nomad
  • Experience with distributed metrics systems like grafana or statsd

Tenniel

HR Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

We just moved our main serving stack to a cloud environment, so now we get to modernize our infrastructure to take advantage of that: we get to take everything apart and put it back together in a more automated, reliable, and sustainable way.

Mike

Lead Site Reliability Engineer

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

We believe the best ideas come from anywhere. Our biggest product launches have come from Vimeo Jams (hackathons), Creator Lab experiments, contributing to open source protocols, engaging our community, and crowdsourcing across the company. Innovation isn’t a buzz word to us – it's how we push the boundaries of storytelling and empower creators.

Anjali

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Vimeo, collaboration takes many shapes and forms. It could be a simple direct message, it could be pulling up a chair and code-pairing, or it could be a team meeting. The key is being able to easily and efficiently collaborate from department to department. Vimeo provides all the tools necessary to make that happen.
