We're on a mission to build the backbone for online video

Our minds react instinctively to motion, and we learn best by watching others. But as bandwidth increases across the world, the camera is becoming the new keyboard.

Every day we face poor video quality, buffering, long waits for transcoding, and latency on livestreams that prevent so many teams from innovating in how we use video on the internet. This is why we are building a new global video backbone accessible via an easy-to-use API.

Our Values

These are the core values we rely on everyday. We team up to eliminate friction when it comes to video.

Be Bold

We will not build the video backbone the Web deserves if we stay in our comfort zone and do not consistently raise the bar in everything we do.

We are all investing in this Mission our most precious asset: our time. Stay curious, challenge yourself, learn and become better everyday.

💬 "Few weeks after my arrival, I was able to choose a $10K tool without approval. The team trusted my skills and my evaluation." Aymeric, Product Manager

Act Fast

Test fast, fail fast, learn, retry and finally succeed.

Only risky decisions will generate great outcomes.

You will not be blamed if that decision turns out badly until you understand why and gather learnings from that. Taking decisions to move on is always better than the status quo.

Learn and Grow

We can't know everything. After all we are Humans.

We might all be experts in our respective field but only the combinaison of our skills makes us a great Team.

Learn from others to grow. We are supporting every initiative going towards this goal.

💬 "I needed to improve my coding skills to be able to help better the users in their video projects. So, I found a coding training (with the help of my CTO) and I'm dedicating 4 hours/week on this for the 4 coming months" Maria, Buisness Developer

Be Reliable

As one Team with a common mission, we can count on each other. Don’t hesitate to ask for help! We value those who doesn’t hesitate to help their teammates and share with them their knowledge.

While there is no micromanagement, we help our teammates and to share them our knowledge.

💬 "I love what I do so when I have the opportunity to help my (non-technical) colleagues to step up their dev knowledge, I jump right in!" Romain, Senior Engineer.

How we work

We’re building a video web-service we strongly believe in — grown by a team of dedicated, curious and passionated people.

We embrace a Product-Led Growth methodology, where our actions are all driven primarily by our product with the goal to partner with our users from their first touch to successfull video app.

We believe that we cannot succeed alone on an outcome. That's why we don't go by the traditional organization split by departments (marketing, sales, engineering, support, finance and so on). Instead we've built multi-disciplinary teams where every member can bring his unique skills and expertises to others to achieve a common goal.
