About Mux

Mux is building the future of online video infrastructure. We started off by building Mux Data, a best-in-class performance analytics tool that’s trusted by developers at companies like PBS, Vimeo, and the CBSi. Billions of monitored streams later, we launched Mux Video, a simple API to video hosting, encoding, and streaming. Take any video file or live stream and make it play beautifully at scale on any device, powered by magical-feeling features like automatic thumbnails, animated gifs, and data-driven encoding decisions. 

About the Role

As a SRE at Mux, you will build and operate a cloud data platform with exceptional reliability at high scale. This means helping develop and maintain globally distributed multi-cloud applications running in containers on Kubernetes. You will work across the entire stack, from application logic to "infrastructure as code", with the goal of ensuring reliability and visibility into production systems while also supporting development velocity for the team. We're looking for a strong engineer who can work quickly on a small team to have a major impact on our application stack and infrastructure.

What You'll Do: 

  • Help Mux systems operate with exceptional reliability, durability, and performance as we scale.
  • Assist Engineering to develop and deploy code faster, with increased confidence and minimal regressions.
  • Ensure Mux Data customers can access the data and insights they need by building out alerting, dashboards, and integrations.
  • Help improve maturity of systems and processes.

Who You Are:

  • 4+ years experience working on large-scale production systems
  • Expert-level knowledge of a systems-level programming language (Golang preferred)
  • Experience administering high-availability DBs
  • Experience with production deployments on container orchestration platforms
  • CS degree (or equivalent experience)
  • Video experience a plus but not required.


Our founders previously started (and sold) Zencoder, an early leader in cloud video technology and one of the few companies in the video space to focus on developer customers. We were named one of the best Y Combinator startups of 2016 and recently raised a Series A from Accel, who joined existing investors SV Angel, Lowercase Capital, and others. You’ll market a product that customers love, like PBS, Funny or Die, IGN, Livestream, and Wistia. You’ll work with an amazing team from places like Google, Facebook, Twitch and Brightcove.
