About the Role  

As a senior engineering manager at Mux, you will lead one or multiple teams to drive the scaling and development of our rapidly growing video platform. You will also play an integral role in scaling out our team, processes, and culture as we grow.

Along with your team, you will dive into challenging video and systems problems to create powerful and delightful video API features. This is a highly impactful role that will lead one or more of our core Video products (Live/Interactive, Core transcoding) which have rapidly growing footprint.

What You'll Do

  • Lead a team of distributed software engineers working on one of our core focus areas in Video (e.g. Live/Interactive)
  • Collaboratively develop a team vision and roadmap with your team, technical leaders, and product counterparts.
  • Drive the successful execution of complex deliverables through technical insights, organization, and productive collaboration.
  • Cultivate a culture of excellence and psychological safety to build inclusive, productive, healthy teams.
  • Hire, develop, and retain strong engineering talent.

Who You Are

  • 3+ years of engineering management experience with a track record of successfully building and leading inclusive, highly productive teams.
  • Prior experience of working with video (Live systems or on-demand video workflows) preferred. Other relevant backgrounds can also include: large scale product with high traffic, and/or experience of working with developer-facing or API products
  • Thrive on nurturing the growth and success of others; you enjoy motivating and bringing a group of people together (engineering and cross-functional).
  • Adept at driving decisions and uniting stakeholders when there is ambiguity, disagreements, or conflicting constraints.
  • High technical curiosity and willingness to learn. Although prior video experience is not required, diving into the details on the job is expected.


You'd join an amazing team from places like Google/YouTube, Amazon/Twitch, Facebook/Oculus, Brightcove, Bain, and the BBC. We have a supportive culture that cares about both excellent work and work-life balance.

  • Flexible PTO 
  • Healthy work-life balance encouraged
  • Competitive health, dental, and vision insurance (99% employee and 50% dependent premium coverage)
  • Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • Short-term and long-term disability insurance

About Mux

Mux is video for developers. Our mission is to democratize video by solving the hard problems developers face when building video: video encoding and streaming (Mux Video), video monitoring (Mux Data), and more. Video is a huge part of people’s lives, and we want to help make it better.

We’re committed to building a healthy team that welcomes a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. We want people who care about our mission, are ready to grow, believe in our values (from Be Human to Turn Customers Into Fans), and want to make the people around them better.

You’ll be joining a tight-knit team with experience at places like Google, YouTube, Twitch, Zencoder, Fastly, and more. Our founders previously started (and sold) Zencoder, an early leader in cloud video technology, and authored Video.js, the biggest HTML5 video player on the web. We organize Demuxed, the premiere conference for video engineers in the world. 

We’re backed by top investors like Andreessen Horowitz, Accel, and Y Combinator. You’ll get to work with amazing companies: hundreds of startups, plus Reddit, Vimeo, Robinhood, CBSi, Discovery, PBS, and TED. Customers large and small love working with us and love our team.

We’re growing quickly and are building something big together. We’d love to hear from you!
