VEED.IO is an online video editing platform with a simple mission: enabling anyone to create professional-looking videos. For too long, video creation has been inaccessible to so many people — you’ve had to download & learn complicated software, and buy expensive equipment. What if you could create a video in five minutes, right from your browser? That’s what we’re building here at VEED.

We're already used by millions of creators around the world — from kids & grandparents, to ambitious YouTubers, to companies like Amazon & Google — all using our products to tell stories, create content & grow their audience.

Since we started VEED four years ago, we’ve grown faster than we could have ever imagined. We’ve gone from one user to millions. From no revenue to over $10M ARR. From bootstrapped to backed by Sequoia, one of the biggest VC firms in the world. From a team of two to a team of 150+. And we’re still growing — we’d love for you to be a part of our journey.

Who are we looking for?

As you probably know Engineering is a team sport, which is why we’re looking for our first Engineering manager to help us support our talented engineering teams.

We have built a team of amazing engineers that work on a variety of things ranging from React to low-level graphics engineering to QA, DevOps and more, to build these tools. Now we need folks to help us structure and lead those teams. Are you that person? If this challenge excites you, please reach out! We’d love for you to be part of this journey!

Line managing direct reports 

  • Support the personal development and career progression of engineers and Engineering Managers by helping them to decide, set goals and agree on actionable steps towards achieving them.
  • Encourage reports to actively learn through self-study, online courses, training and conferences.
