Product Designer - Mux Video
San Francisco or Remote (US)
Posted on 2/22/2021
Mux is video for developers. Our mission is to democratize video by solving the hard problems developers face when building video: video encoding and streaming (Mux Video), video monitoring (Mux Data), and more. Video is a huge part of people’s lives, and we want to help make it better.
We’re committed to building a healthy team that welcomes a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. We want people who care about our mission, are ready to grow, believe in our values (from Be Human to Turn Customers Into Fans), and want to make the people around them better.
You’ll be joining a tight-knit team with experience at places like Google, YouTube, Twitch, Zencoder, Fastly, and more. Our founders previously started (and sold) Zencoder, an early leader in cloud video technology, and authored Video.js, the biggest HTML5 video player on the web. We organize Demuxed, the premiere conference for video engineers in the world.
We’re backed by top investors like Accel and Y Combinator. You’ll get to work with amazing companies: hundreds of startups, plus Reddit, Vimeo, Robinhood, CBSi, Discovery, PBS, and TED. Customers large and small love working with us and love our team.
We’re growing quickly and are building something big together. We’d love to hear from you!
Product Design at Mux
Mux cares deeply about design and we’ve invested in it heavily from the start. As a technical company building a data-heavy product and a developer-friendly video API, design is especially important. Our real-time dashboard was used exclusively to monitor the streaming of the Super Bowl last year and our video API is powering streaming on popular consumer apps like Robinhood and others. We’re looking for strong designers to help us scale design across our products and work with our world-class customers to deliver some exciting new features and products that we have planned. ✨

We’re looking for a strong designer who can work quickly on a small team to have significant impact on our customers' success.
