Senior C Developer

What is Clipchamp?

We’re a Brisbane-based video-tech company whose unique, in-browser applications overcome limitations of both desktop and cloud-based alternatives with one simple mission: to help everyone become a creator of awesome video content! Whether it’s in a professional or private context, videos get the point across easier and are simply more fun to consume. We exist to make sure they’re also fun to create!

Since 2013 we’ve published 3 products to-date, attracting nearly 7 million global users and counting! And that’s only the beginning… We’re transforming the way people create and we’re looking for a Senior C Developer to play in this awesomely innovative and evolving field with us — someone eager to improve our technically demanding web application, engineering video solutions alongside talented technical innovators!

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • solve challenging video compression, encoding, decoding and rendering problems
  • build and ship working software to millions of people in every country of the world
  • collaborate with co-founders, growth hackers, designers and other developers in small cross-functional teams
  • directly impact strategic decisions related to our in-browser video editing infrastructure and product performance
  • advance your career in a truly innovative, high-visibility environment

You’ll be bringing:

  • 5+ years backend software development
  • solid C experience and familiarity focused in ffmpeg and/or assembly
  • strong dev practices that help maximise quality so that users consistently experience properly working software
  • updated knowledge of latest industry developments
  • Ambition to get things done, now, the fast lane, no bureaucracy, idleness is boring

Bonus points if you love

  • Online video and understanding the technically challenging problems we’re solving
  • Startups – incomplete briefs, unpredictability, urgency, the need for initiative and the rapid growth opportunities that come with it
  • 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
