Vimeo OTT helps video creators grow thriving video businesses, from small content creators to major media partners. Creators distribute and sell their amazing videos through our customer-branded websites and apps on iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Android, and Roku. Our core technology is a React and Rails web app through which creators administer multiple video products and viewers watch and pay for videos.

The Vimeo OTT Platform team is focused on creating an exceptionally scalable, rock-solid platform that can keep up with the growing business and provide the foundation for continued, long-term growth. We cover public and private APIs, infrastructure and operations, security, and integrations. It’s a broad range of responsibilities which translates directly to broad opportunities for working with different technologies and for making an impact!

OTT Engineering as a whole is an organization that loves to collaborate, encourages curiosity, and upholds technical excellence. We continuously ship small improvements to help our creators, striving to make world-class software that empowers people to build their business with video. We believe diversity of perspective and experience are key to building great tech.

  • Write clean, well-tested, and performant code for our web platform, using Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, and other languages when they are the right tool for the job.
  • Make significant contributions to big projects that affect the core architecture of the Vimeo OTT platform and expand our ability to deliver rich experiences to our users.

  • Support and mentor junior engineers, uphold best practices and standards, and become a trusted engineering leader.
  • Be instrumental in growing the role of backend engineering for Viewer Experience, a full-stack team that works on making Vimeo OTT a world-class experience for viewers
