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.
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.
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 and AWS.
