Front-End Engineer, Upload
At Vimeo, we love designing and engineering the best video upload experience on the web. As an engineer on the upload infrastructure team, not only will you write code, you’ll balance your knowledge of programming with performance in order to create the fastest and most reliable uploading experience on the web, from device to data center. This team is concerned first and foremost with the speed and reliability of the upload experience and thinks deeply and proactively about the value upload features can bring to our users.
What You’ll Do:
- Fix bugs and make small improvements to the upload UI so as to become familiar with the upload front end, as well as learning how it fits within the upload architecture and overall application stack.
- Add visible features to the upload workflow.
- Write new cloud services and application code as needed to offer new upload features, as well as making contributions to the uploader client used in our desktop web experience.
- Work with your fellow upload team members, as well as the creator workflow team, and the community team to create the best upload experience. You’ll be spending half your time working on new projects and half on maintenance and ensuring reliability and security.
Skills and knowledge you should possess:
- Experience with at least one server-side programming language (PHP, Python, Go, Java, Ruby, Node)
- Knowledge of general-purpose algorithms and data structures
- Experience working with RESTful APIs
- Great attention to detail: features as highly visible and critical as uploads on the Vimeo platform require a careful eye and an empathetic approach to user experience.
