Video Engineer

We’re all about video. It’s at the core of our product and pipeline. If you’re an expert at video and image processing, and are looking to build on your cloud-computing knowledge, you’d be a great addition to our team!  

 

01About the Role

Engineers at Frame.io are creative, technical people making beautiful and powerful tools to help other creative, technical people to do their best work. We have to be—Frame.io is the thread that runs through the entire video post-production process.

We're looking for a media focussed systems engineer to join our growing engineering team. You'll work in an autonomous group that builds cloud-based services to power our entire media processing and delivery pipeline: the service at the very core of the Frame.io product.

Some projects members of this team have built recently include:

  • An HLS and Dash streaming video service, built using Cloudfront, Lambda@Edge and API Gateway.
  • An on-the-fly watermarking system, encoding segments within Lambda functions.
  • A PDF page extraction service, generating up-to 4k images per page of a PDF.

We rely heavily on AWS services to build these systems; in fact our whole video encoding process was recently the subject of an in-depth AWS showcase that you can check out HERE.

As a team we work with petabytes of data, hundreds of thousands of video encodes per day, and the challenges and demands that come from working at the very forefront of delivering Enterprise grade secure review experiences. This is a great opportunity to enhance your cloud computing knowledge; you'll be expected to design, build, and maintain cloud-based services that our client teams and customers consume.
