Sr. Software Engineer, OTT Applications

| Greater NYC Area

Our Video Playback Experience team builds the over-the-top (OTT) applications that serve as the front door for Vimeo OTT. This is an opportunity to develop at the forefront of video and application technology, overcoming diverse technical challenges while building beautiful interfaces.

Our platform provides an end-to-end solution for individual creators, niche programmers, and major media partners to build and distribute premium OTT video channels (think Netflix in-a-box!). With over five hundred subscription channels with over 150 apps on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, and Roku, Vimeo OTT focuses on the core technology while our sellers focus on what they do best: making content. We are building a platform that is powerful and customizable enough to serve as the backbone to all premium video networks across the globe.

In addition, ideal candidates have built solid user experiences around video playback, coded full-fledged client-side applications, and are familiar with OTT development.

  • Develop online video applications for Samsung TV, Xbox One, Chromecast, Roku devices
  • Write solid, scalable, re-usable code with JavaScript and derivatives.
  • Accompany your code with meaningful test coverage.
  • Provide feedback on your efforts and the work of others.
  • Experiment and discover solutions to a range of technical problems.
  • Drive towards the best video playback experience.
  • Coordinate with API, QA, and product teams effectively.

Skills and knowledge you should possess:

  • Familiarity with modern streaming media formats (e.g. HLS, DASH).
  • Knowledge of OTT development.
  • 5+ years building web applications.
  • Deep understanding of modern JavaScript development (language, toolchain).
  • Experience in programming interactive browser-based applications.
  • Solid understanding of Object Oriented Programming.

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.
