About Us


Zoomies help people stay connected so they can get more done together. We set out to build the best video product for the enterprise, and today help people communicate better with products like Zoom Contact Center, Zoom Phone, Zoom Events, Zoom Apps, Zoom Rooms, and Zoom Webinar.


We’re problem-solvers, working at a fast pace to design solutions with our customers and users in mind. Here, you’ll work across teams to deliver impactful projects that are changing the way people communicate and enjoy opportunities to advance your career in a diverse, inclusive environment.


The premise


Zoom Rooms bring HD video collaboration into any space — in the office, in the classroom, or at home — and enable in-person and remote participants to interact in real time. Simple to start a meeting, book a room, and share content, Zoom Rooms delivers the best conference room experience on the market.
