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.
