We are a visual species. Our minds react instinctively to motion, and we learn best by watching others. Writing has been a detour.
The camera is our new keyboard. We at api.video believe that people will end up coming back to the most natural and universal way to communicate with each other.
The internet was designed to move text from one place to another, not to move video. This is why we face everyday poor quality, buffering, wait for transcoding, and latency on livestreams. This is why we are building the backbone that our video-first World needs.
These are the core values we rely on everyday. We team up to eliminate friction when it comes to video.
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
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.

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.
