Golang / Go Job: Software Engineer - Video


Software Engineer - Video at Mux

Remote › 100% remote position (in the US)
  (Posted Oct 3 2021)

Job description
Location: San Francisco or Remote (US)
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, Accel, Andreessen Horowitz, 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 Role
As a Video Engineer at Mux, you will help build and scale powerful API-based functionalities for our core product, Mux Video. Our video engineering teams evolve our video transcoding and processing pipeline to deliver powerful features that serve a wide range of customers. We have worked on challenging problems ranging from just-in-time transcoding to per-title encoding — and we are just getting started! We are looking for Video Engineers with strong engineering fundamentals that want to join a fast-paced, creative, and inclusive Engineering team.

What You'll Do
Collaborate with your team on a technical roadmap and product goals
Develop and evolve our transcoding platform to support new capabilities and video quality concerns
Design, maintain, and build services and video processing workflows to enable new features that meet performance requirements
Work with Platform teams to ensure our features continue to meet core SLIs as we grow in ingest and delivery

Who You Are
3+ years of engineering experience.
You’re a strong engineer comfortable working across multiple platforms and environments.
Solid engineering fundamentals (CS degree a plus). Strong knowledge of a general purpose programming language (we primarily use Golang)
Prior experience of working in a subset of these technologies:
Go, C, Moden C++
HTTP Streaming formats: HLS and DASH
Packaged media formats (e.g. fMP4, Transport Streams)

Bonus: strong knowledge of bitstream formats for video coding standards (e.g. AVC/AAC/VP9/AVI)

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.

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
Group life insurance
Paid parental leave
Investment in career growth and training
Thought leadership and peer recognition program
“Day of Learning” events
Reimbursements for headphones, cell phones, device upgrades, and SVOD services of Mux customers
Remote lunch reimbursement 3x/week
