Senior Software Engineer

The Netflix API is used to power hundreds of devices, everything from game consoles, to mobile phones, to web sites.  The API is handling billions of requests a day and more than 35,000 requests per second at peak times.  By some accounts, Netflix is also responsible for more than 30% of the US bandwidth during prime time (http://bit.ly/m1DIPP).  The growth of the API is integral to Netflix’s long-term strategy. It also enables Netflix and its partners to rapidly innovate on new Netflix scenarios and enable new devices.
 
THE CULTURE
 
When you get up in the morning and think about your work for the day, are you excited? Can’t wait to get started? Do you feel like the work you do makes a difference and moves the business in a meaningful way? Do your co-workers know who you are, what you do, and that you do it exceptionally well? Do you want to work with smart people who love to solve hard problems? This is the kind of environment that we value at Netflix. High performance is not only noticed but required.
 
THE OPPORTUNITY
 
The API team is seeking a senior web engineer to develop new APIs and web services to support our growing international streaming products. If you are into developing APIs and supporting other developers with your work, this is the job for you.
The successful candidate will have strong object-oriented design and development expertise as well as experience developing highly scalable, multi-tier, web systems. He or she will work closely with other internal development teams and support external partners and developers, so strong interpersonal and project management skills are a must. Direct experience developing APIs and cloud services is a plus.

- You have a mastery of object oriented design and design patterns, and programming skills

- You react quickly to emerging customer requirements and technologies, and anticipate future needs
- You know how to design software and/or platforms used by other developers, and have supported those developers with the adoption of your solutions
- You obsess about designing software that can be applied across a variety of application scenarios
- You partner well with others to deliver integrated solutions from other teams and for other teams- you don’t require a program or project manager to manage simple engineering collaborations across teams or manage your delivery commitments
- You may have experience writing cloud deployed applications using Amazon Web Services and EC2
- Experience with Groovy and other scripting languages is a plus
- You may have experience leveraging build and continuous integration (CI) frameworks such as Hudson, Cruise Control, ivy, maven
