For almost 10 years, Vimeo has been made with love by a steadfast team of people in New York City. During that time, our team has grown to international and intergalactic dimensions, and each week, there are a tremendous number of goings-on at our company. We are continuously excited to share what’s happening at Vimeo with the world (yep, you).
Our Vimeo Staff Blog (the thing you're reading right now) frequently crackles with announcements and feature launches, but the less-often-heard voices belong to those who build the infrastructure, infotainments, and suchlike that constitute your Vimeo experience. We’re talking about the philosophers, scholars, and scientists who we call Vimeans. These people make Vimeo, and today we bring them into the conversation.
And so we’re very psyched to announce Makers of the Vimeo, a blog-type thing where you can learn firsthand about the challenges faced daily by our engineers, designers, producers, writers, and community supporters, as well as the creative solutions they think up.
On Makers of the Vimeo, you'll learn many fun facts about our team, such as:
- More than 40 developers willingly call Vimeo home, with a variety of specialities: application development, transcoding, search, data science, stats & logging, ops, infrastructure, systems, site reliability, mobile, and more! And more!!!!
- We have a team of 10 designers who are as comfortable pushing code as they are pushing pixels.
- 80 Vimeans, spanning community, marketing, business, and beyond, also work to make our product and support the people who use it.
- And we continue to grow! We're hiring a ton more makers.
In the coming months, we hope Makers of the Vimeo will become a rich resource for the jacks and jills of all trades who work on the Internet every single day — just like us. (We, too, wonder what daylight feels like.) Take the plunge into our brains at making.vimeo.com.
