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.

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.

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.
