Who We Are

The Engineering Team at Viki works on developing and maintaining the backend behind viki.com - a global TV site with TV shows, movies and other premium content, translated into more than 200 languages by a community of avid fans. With 30 million viewers each month and over 1 billion words translated, Viki uniquely brings global prime-time entertainment to new audiences and unlocks new markets and revenue opportunities for content owners.

Viki was named a World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer 2014 and acquired by Japanese internet services giant Rakuten in September 2013. The company has offices in San Francisco, Singapore, Seoul and Tokyo.

Our Engineering Philosophy

We are not obsessed by any particular technology. We believe cool technologies might not get the job done, the right technologies do. We use Ruby, Node.js, Golang, AngularJS, EmberJS with PostgreSQL, Redis and RabbitMQ. We make sure our code is highly decoupled through message queue infrastructure, service-oriented architectures and proper design patterns.

Engineering Done Right

We think performance and code quality should not be an afterthought. We favor code refactoring over adding new functionality. We focus on test-driven development, short-cycle deployment.

Output Over Input

We value highly effective and efficient people. You can come in at noon, you can work from home. Only your output matters.

People Come First

We believe the right people make all the difference. Building great software comes from building great teams. This puts the focus on the right people working well and having fun together.

Meet Our Team

Our team is as diverse as Viki itself -- technologists from Canada, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam, Hungary and the United States.
