Sr. Software Engineer, API at Vimeo
At Vimeo, we love designing and engineering tools that combine power with ease of use. Our engineers work on professional-grade distribution tools for creators and have the opportunity to do way more than write code.
About the team:
We’re a small team that cares about collaboration, encourages curiosity, celebrates technical excellence, and is driven by careful attention to detail and planning for the future. We believe diversity of perspective and experience are key to building great technology and believe that the best way to iterate towards success is by taking care of ourselves, our families, our users, and one another.
What you’ll do:
- Build and improve tools that enable creators to connect with their audience, whether it be through the Vimeo video player or by publishing to other social platforms.
- Work closely with our Design and Product teams to move projects from conception to launch.
- A/B test new features, analyze their results, and release improvements iteratively.
- Sculpt the architectural vision for significant parts of our stack to allow for rapid iteration and long term stability.
- Work closely with other engineers on the team to aid in their technical growth.

- Can collaborate respectfully and effectively with both technical and non-technical teams
- Organized and have the ability to break up projects into manageable pieces and complete them with limited compromises by the established deadline
- Have a good eye for details; you catch bugs frequently and can provide meaningful feedback on the technical complexity of visual designs
