Most people outside of the industry do not understand the pain points our members endure to deliver professional video. From an outsider’s perspective it seems simple: upload a video to YouTube or Vimeo and email the link, or drop the files on a USB drive and give it to the client. The issue is far more complicated and nuanced. We are here to solve the pain points our members face every day.
MediaZilla is a SaaS based video delivery platform for professionals and enthusiasts. Members can easily create an immersive Hollywood movie experience to showcase their projects on any device. The Digital Delivery process is unlike any other video platform, allowing a true transfer of possession from members to their clients.
Unique to MediaZilla, you can also create “Collections” to showcase one or more videos with an immersive menu, similar to a Blu-ray.
MediaZilla’s user base is split between paid members (companies or video professionals) who provide content to their clients who don’t need to pay for the service. While most of the platform’s functionality focuses on the paid members’ experiences of uploading videos and images, creating and editing collections, and managing delivery of the collections and media, the end-user (the client of the member) is equally important. If the client’s experience is a great one it adds immense value to the members’ business/service.
We have proven this market exists and are now ready to scale. We are cash flow positive and profitable and have a growing membership that we can continue to serve well. Because of our growth ($1.2 Million ARR) we have scaled out of our current POC system. The new production build will be a huge catalyst in our growth given its all new design and feature set.
The founding team has been involved in this industry for more than 15 years. MediaZilla's founder worked closely with Adobe on their suite of video tools (Premiere, After Effects, and Encore) and their development team on ideating new features and fixing bugs.
After running another successful company called Precomposed Media (https://mediazilla.com/eneqpxgF7 ) it became apparent there was a much larger need in the industry. Four years later MediaZilla is still kicking ass and is the delivery platform of choice by the industry’s top professionals.
Our dedication to our team is tantamount to our members. We make sure each person on our team has the opportunity for high impact work on innovative features that improve our industry. Everyone plays a significant role in helping grow the business and we in turn foster personal and professional growth by supporting learning and growing as an engineer or non-engineer. When each individual team member succeeds, we all succeed.
We are an agile team of software engineers, product specialists, entrepreneurs and business professionals. As such, there are massive opportunities to take ownership of your role and grow professionally unencumbered. You will be learning new concepts, best practices and solving challenging problems on a daily basis.
We have a team of dedicated engineering professionals that are smart, motivated and ship quality code. We are an agile shop that works in two week sprints, with daily stand-ups, code reviews and retrospectives.
We work hard to continually improve our processes and ourselves.
Currently we are working on a complete platform rebuild. We are nearing completion and need strong engineers to further our efforts.
Distributing streaming video at scale across all major devices, including web, mobile and TVs is a unique challenge. It seems simple and the expectations from the end-user are,
It should just work. Under the hood there are a lot of interesting and challenging problems to solve.
MediaZilla is migrating our entire infrastructure and codebase to a fully fledged, contemporary code base, including a full UI/UX overhaul and a React dark themed design.
