    More about api.video 🎥

    The internet was designed to move text from one place to another. It was never designed for video.

    But as bandwidth increases across the world, the camera is becoming the new keyboard. Video on the internet is essentially a portal that we can open across incredible distances and allows us to interact in the most natural and human way possible. This is why we believe that a #videofirst world is inevitable.

    But video is still too hard. 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.


    Entrepreneurs and developers shouldn't be constrained by their understanding of arcane video codecs and protocols, they shouldn't have to worry about what device their users are using or where they are located in the world.

    Our goal is to enable those entrepreneurs and developers to build wildly innovative video experiences more quickly and easily than ever before.

    Our values:

    • Be bold

    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. By working at api.video, we are all investing our most precious asset: our time. Stay curious, challenge yourself and others, and embrace risk to learn and become better everyday.

    • Act Fast

    Test fast, fail fast, learn, retry, and finally succeed. Only risky decisions have the power to generate extraordinary outcomes. You will not be blamed if a decision you make turns out badly as long as you understand why and gather learnings from the experience. Being thoughtfully decisive is always better than the status quo.

    • Grow through Humility

    We might all be experts in our respective field but only the combination of our skills makes us a great team. Stay humble–whatever your expertise–and share your knowledge, insights, and network to help others grow with you. You can expect the same from everyone in the company.

    • Be Reliable

    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 others and share knowledge.


    • Transparency leads to Trust

    We care enough about each other to give candid, caring, and actionable feedback often. We also care about each other enough to accept constructive criticisms with an open mind and heart.
