About the team
We love the Internet and video is a huge part of it. We’re working hard on building tools that change the possibilities of what Creators can do with video on the web.
We make advanced video technologies such as adaptive bitrate, multi-codec, low latency across devices available to every developer.
We enable Creators to unleash creativity on the web.
Stream is part of Cloudflare's Emerging Technology and Incubation team. This is where new, bold products are built and released within Cloudflare.
Rather than being constrained by the structures which make Cloudflare a successful business, we leverage our network to deliver entirely new tools and products to our customers.
We’re looking to hire an engineer to join our six-person team based out of Austin, San Francisco and Lisbon. If you join us, you’ll be an early team member in helping shape our architecture, products we offer, and make a big impact on creators we work with.
What you'll do
Examples of things we’ve worked on
However, unlike YouTube, we don’t coordinate a three sided marketplace of ad networks, creators and viewers. We simply charge our customers for the views on their videos, a fraction of what it would cost them to build, operate and sustain a similar system.
We make sure videos remain performant over years by upgrading them to the latest technology. We empower creators to build their own following and innovate with new business models.
We deliver video and do view authorization using Cloudflare Workers. Our player is written using React. We collect statistics on playback using Kafka and store it in Clickhouse.
Our roadmap is largely driven by product and engineering teams as we’re early in realizing our vision of what Cloudflare Steam will do.
We’re in the sweet spot of having enough infrastructure and conventions to move quickly and low tech debt that prevents us from building new features.
We like working from the office so when the pandemic ends we’ll go back to a mix of home and office that meets our personal work style.
