Vimeo’s first Growth Engineer is responsible for the technical efforts to organically grow Vimeo’s unique community of consumers and uploaders. You will be involved in the design and validation of experiments to increase user population. You will be a voracious learner, resilient to failure, inclined towards action, and impact driven. You’re able to learn from data, keep up the pace, and you play well with others. Vimeo is the go-to platform for high-quality videos, and we’re in search of someone who can build products to grow our user base like a magic beanstalk.
What you'll do:
Day-to-day, you'll be running micro experiments on social networks and building more native pages. You’ll be using tools like Optimizely and our own internal testing frameworks to set up, QA, and run A/B and multivariate tests. You’ll be deeply involved with AMP, Instant, and site-wide SEO cleanup and optimization. You’ll know you’re successful if your efforts result in driving Vimeo distribution and increasing our user-base.
In your first 30 days, you'll understand Vimeo's code as it relates to SEO. You’ll begin to identify deficiencies in these systems or the tools associated with them, and work with the rest of the team to update them.
In your first 90 days, you’ll be creating an international subdomain that’s fully SEO optimized. You'll be working on a plan for improving SEO on-site. You’ll have conducted tests with Google Amp, Facebook Instant Articles, and other platforms.
Within 6 months, you and your team will be the SEO experts at Vimeo. You’ll be consulting with teams on each launch, and you’ll continue to experiment.
Beyond the first year, this team is thinking about the future of the web and how Vimeo should exist in it.
Along this journey, you will jump into the codebase and make changes directly, rather than waiting on development resources. You’ll work collaboratively with other developers who can assist you in creating growth.
