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. 
 
As an engineer at Mux, you will help develop our React/Redux front-end application, our Elixir-based APIs, and our JavaScript SDKs. Work on interesting challenges like developer-friendly onboarding, data visualization, and scalable APIs. We’re looking for a strong engineer who can work quickly on a small team to lead up important parts of our application stack.

Our Ideal Candidate:

  • 4+ years of engineering experience. You’re a strong engineer comfortable working across multiple platforms and environments.
  • Solid engineering fundamentals (CS degree a plus).
  • Advanced Javascript (we’re using ES2017 and Webpack) and CSS. React/Redux experience or similar preferred.
  • Experience building REST APIs that people enjoy using. (We're using Elixir, but experience Python, Ruby, Node, etc. is also fine.)
  • Bonus for experience with data visualization.
  • 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. 

  • A supportive culture that cares about both excellent work and work-life balance
  • Salary + equity with perks like a 10-year exercise window
  • Competitive health, dental, and vision insurance (99% employee and 50% dependent premium coverage)
  • Commuter benefits
