Description

Mux is building the future of online video infrastructure. Our first product was analytics and performance monitoring - think “NewRelic for Video” - used by major video streaming companies like PBS, Vimeo, and the New York Times to monitor and improve billions of streams. We just announced Mux Video, a simple API to video hosting, encoding and streaming - think "Stripe for Video" - which uses our performance data, machine learning, and just-in-time encoding for unmatched video quality and efficiency. POST a video in; GET a video out that plays anywhere and is deeply optimized for the target device and user. Then get creative with features like audio transcription and face detection. We think building with video should be fun, not complicated.

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.

You’ll be joining an amazing team from places like Google/YouTube, Facebook, Twitch and Brightcove. Our founders previously started (and sold) Zencoder, an early leader in cloud video technology. We also authored Video.js, the biggest HTML5 video player on the web. We were named one of the best Y Combinator startups of 2016, and we recently raised a Series A from Accel, joining existing investors SV Angel, Lowercase, the founders of Heroku, Parse, and others.

Requirements

  • 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.

Benefits

  • Work with the best team in the video industry.
  • Successful founding team that includes the creators of Zencoder, Video.js, and Demuxed.
  • 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
  • 401(k)
  • Cell phone service and device reimbursements
  • Catered lunches, snacks, and good coffee
  • Paid parental leave
  • Flex PTO policy
  • Investment in career growth and training
