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 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!

    • Go, C, Moden C++

    • ffmpeg/libav

    • Packaged media formats (e.g. fMP4, Transport Streams)

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

Benefits

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

  • 401(k)

  • Paid parental leave

  • Investment in career growth and training
