Engineering Manager: Shaping the future of video

What is Clipchamp?

Clipchamp is the go-to video platform that empowers anyone to tell stories worth sharing. Our in-browser platform gives users access to professional video editing tools and features from simple cropping and resizing to special effects like transitions, motion titles, and even green screen. We also offer an 800 thousand asset strong strock library and hundreds of editable video templates. We're a platform built for everyday editors, and today, Clipchamp is being used by over 11 million of them, in 238 countries across the world.  

Our Philosophy

We're a software company, so engineering is at the heart of what we do. As part of the development team, you'll be creating technical solutions every single day in a supportive and learning-driven environment. There's never any guesses about what work will actually reach our users, it all does. You can be confident that your work will have an impact on the millions of users who love our product.

Our team endeavours to innovate. We believe the path to innovation is forged by valuing questions, craving feedback and exploring new ideas. Developers are encouraged to take ownership and foster change, and we'll support you in receiving the resources and flexibility needed to get the job done. Our engineers are valued, and we ensure you the respect of being treated like an expert in your field. 

Our Stack

We choose to use the browser like an operating system and handle files and operations in the browser for which browsers weren’t built. All of our video editing and exporting is handled on the client side, which is why we use tech like React, WebAssembly, FFmpeg, and OpenGL. Our backend is Python-based and runs on Google Cloud. You don't need experience in all of these technologies to succeed on our team - more importantly, we look for learning mindsets and an interest in working in this environment.

As an Engineering Manager, you’ll be:

  • Empowering software engineers to continuously learn, improve their skills, and grow their careers
  • Advocating for software engineers, helping them remove obstacles, unlocking their potential and improving their performance
  • Helping software engineers to break down squad objectives into deliverables
  • Providing and receiving honest feedback, fostering open communication
  • Helping build and embody Clipchamp's high-performance and healthy engineering culture and principles
  • Conducting regular one-on-ones, identifying top performers and supporting their growth into leadership roles
  • Supporting recruitment, hiring and on-boarding efforts by working closely with recruiters, screening candidates, and identifying opportunities for external engagement to improve Clipchamp's engineering brand

Who we’re looking for:

  • Demonstrated experience managing software engineering teams
  • A technical background in software engineering
  • Strong servant leadership skills and passion for supporting and developing people
  • Proven experience recruiting, hiring, coaching and defining growth paths for engineering teams
  • Great communication – you can consider others’ ideas, implement new methods, surface and resolve disagreements and empathise with users without breaking a sweat

Bonus points if you love

  • Online video and contributing to the technically challenging problems we’re solving
  • Startups – ever changing landscape, experimentation, innovation, and direct impact on the direction of the company
  • Maxing out what browsers can do, that’s what we’re about! We were told you can’t build a video editing platform in browser, including encoding the final video – but we did
