An Insider's view of Vimeo

What are some social events your company does?

Vimeo loves to break it down on the dance floor so it's tradition to make sure that happens! Events cater to a variety of interests and lets you try something new with your Vimeo family. From karaoke to channel your inner Celine, scavenger hunts for the adrenaline rush, to paint nights that let your creative genius shine - we do it all with loveo!

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.
