  • Review changes to our infrastructure and application for potential security impact 
  • Verify any application-specific security vulnerabilities and assess whether we're exposed to newly published weaknesses
  • Conduct regular security assessments of Vimeo’s infrastructure, application, and access policies


  • Solid understanding of web application architecture, TCP/IP, HTTP, SMTP, and Linux
  • Understanding of Amazon Web Services, and IAM
  • Competence with one or more programming languages, and unafraid of getting into code

  • Experience with ISO 27001/2, PCI, SOX, ITGC, or other security frameworks
  • Experience working with external vendors

Today, Vimeo reaches a monthly audience of over 90 million creators and viewers — and we’re growing bigger every day.
