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 China, Hong Kong, India, Iran, Korea, Malaysia, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and the United States.
