About the role

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 Coatue, 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!

About the Team

Mux Studio is a product-led innovation group, who discover and prototype new products and features with a high level of autonomy. As a member of the Studio team, you’ll be working on a new product that helps developers add live video to their application. You’ll be making contributions across the stack, and will massively impact how developers use Mux.

What You'll Do

  • Work with your team to collaborate and execute on the product goals and technical roadmap.
  • Develop user-facing, product-focused features in our React frontend and Go backend.
  • Contribute to new feature development on greenfield products.

Who You Are

  • We are hiring mid to staff-level engineers.
  • You’re a strong engineer comfortable working across multiple platforms and environments.
  • Solid engineering fundamentals (CS degree a plus).
  • Proficient in Typescript and React.
  • Experience building REST APIs that people enjoy using. Go experience is a big plus, but Python, Ruby, Node, and other general-purpose programming languages are also great.
  • Video experience a plus but not required.

If you don't have all of these requirements but think your experience could be a great fit, that's okay! Please apply and we can talk about what's most needed in the role.

U.S. Benefits

  • Flexible PTO with 2-week minimum + 11 company holidays
