Software Developer: Shaping the future of video

What is Clipchamp?

Clipchamp is the go-to video platform with one simple mission: to empower anyone to tell stories worth sharing! Since 2016 we’ve attracted over 14 million registered users globally and counting, and that’s only the beginning! Our in-browser platform gives users access to professional video editing tools and features alongside an 800 thousand asset-strong stock library and hundreds of editable video templates. We're the go-to platform that's built for everyday editors and creators, and as a winner of the employers choice award, we're also the start-up developed with our people in mind.

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 a Software Developer, you’ll be:

  • Contributing to development of custom solutions, ranging from new assets to new APIs
  • Collaborating with team members to find the best solutions and potential opportunities for end-users and enterprise customers
  • Engineering solutions for integrations and seamless user experiences in small cross-functional teams
  • Gaining exposure to new technologies, and learning engineering best practices

Who we’re looking for:

  • Demonstrated interest in modern web technologies (SPA/PWA)
  • Passion for learning new skills with the ability to thrive in a feedback driven environment
  • A motivated individual with an active Github account, you love to code and it shows!

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
