Engineering Manager: Shaping the future of video

What is Clipchamp?

Clipchamp is the go-to video platform, providing all the tools to help anyone seamlessly become a creator of awesome video content. Our in-browser solution allows users to make high quality, engaging videos, without relying on expensive equipment, complicated software or any previous video production experience. We also are paving the way on mobile, with an eagerly anticipated iOS app launch.

We have millions of registered users worldwide and are trusted by both small business and mid-large enterprise, educational organisations influencers and creatives from around the globe.  

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 tackling technical challenges every single day. 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.

At Clipchamp, we endeavour to innovate. We believe the path to innovation lies in valuing questions, craving feedback and exploring new ideas. Developers are encouraged to take ownership and drive change, and we'll support you in receiving the resources 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 executed 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.

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
