We’re on the hunt for a senior creative mind and leader to join the Vimeo Creative team. In this role, you will oversee internal creatives (and the occasional freelancer) in the development and execution of everything that falls under the fuzzy label of “creative.” Which, at Vimeo, runs the gamut of product, marketing, and many, many things in between. Brand platforms, ads, strategy, films, events, social activations, long-form content, brand design, product copy and design, innovation projects, and so on.

Be aware: this isn’t a sit-back-and-manage management role. You’ll be expected to jump in, roll up sleeves, and get amongst the work — concepting, executing, producing and crafting — every day.

The perfect candidate has experience with brand thinking at the highest level, but also understands the importance of execution of the smallest detail. They have probably worked for creative agencies, or in-house creative teams. Ideally both. And for at least 6 years.

This person probably has a copywriting background, but we’re open to qualified candidates with an art direction or design background.

In this role, you will:

  • Work closely with our Head of Creative and Design Lead to manage and run the Vimeo Creative department.
  • Directly manage creative teams and copywriters, keeping them on track and delivering on-schedule.
  • Provide creative direction, mentorship and “coach up” creatives on your team and throughout the organization.
  • Help define and strengthen the beloved Vimeo brand, and enable the world’s creators to tell even more amazing stories.
  • Help install a creative process that allows for you and your teams to do their best work, and increase Vimeo’s brand value.
  • Be involved in recruiting and hiring additional creative team members
  • Regularly report on creative performance; present high-level metrics and takeaways to senior leadership.
  • Collaborate daily with teams across Vimeo, including Marketing, Product, Engineering, Community, Biz Dev, and beyond.
  • Be a nice human :)

If you’re applying, you should:

  • Have 6-10 years of experience leading creative teams for brands in-house or at an agency. Ideally both.
  • Have a bachelor’s degree, and a background in either copywriting or art direction
  • Be familiar with the Adobe Creative Cloud, Sketch, and other digital design tools
  • Maintain a healthy obsession with creating and advocating for brand identity guidelines

To apply, please send us:

  • A brief, non-generic cover letter
  • A great resume
  • A link to your portfolio

HR Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Vimeo, collaboration is the driving force of our teams. From participating in team whiteboarding sessions to building cross-team projects during our annual Vimeo Jam hackathon, to grabbing coffee with someone new. Vimeo provides an environment that brings people together and sparks innovation and friendships throughout the company.

Tyler

Front-End Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

Vimeo’s mission has been focused on putting the user first. That makes our job on the support team very interesting and unique from any other company I’ve ever seen. We’re constantly thinking outside of any limitations of our work to make sure our users have the best and most consistent experience, and this makes our work so fulfilling.

Sara

Sr. Manager, Creator Tools

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

What’s the vibe like in the office?

From Staff Pick screenings to endless community events, there is always something to do at Vimeo. My favorite events are the ones organized by our various Employee Community Groups, which provide opportunities to expand our perspective, discover new skills, and connect with people across all departments. Vimeo truly makes you feel right at home.
