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.

Act Fast

We test fast, fail fast, retry, and finally, we succeed!

Only risky decisions can generate great outcomes. You will not be blamed if this decision turns out badly as long as you understand why and learn from your mistakes. Taking decision to move on is always better than the status quo.

Grow through Humility

We learn from others to grow our minds and to grow as a Team.

We might all be experts in our respective field but only the combination of our skills makes us a great Team. Stay humble, and share your knowledge, insights, and network to help others grow with you. Always remember that you can expect the same from anyone in the company.

💬 "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

We help our teammates and share with each other our knowledge.

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

Be Transparent

We don’t hide anything, we communicate openly with each other.

We care for each other enough to give wise and actionable advice to anyone. But we also care about each other enough to accept constructive criticisms.

Be Bold

We like to take risks!

We will not build the video backbone the Web deserves if we stay on our comfort zone and do not consistently raise the bar in everything we do. Stay curious, challenge yourself and embrace risk to learn and become better everyday.

Take Ownership

We want to get things done and mistakes may happen, but when in doubt, ask for help.

We own up to our mistakes, and we don’t play the blame game. We are accountable for our actions.

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.
