Senior Software Engineer

Streaming metadata is a key element in ensuring a solid personalized Netflix experience. We are part of the Netflix Product Engineering team, which supports the movie discovery, personalized recommendations, and playback for each of the 25 million subscribers who reach us via the website, TV-connected and mobile devices. We develop high performance libraries and servers powering the video metadata needs for all of Netflix (e.g. member experience, playback experience, and signup experience), making it the compelling service it is, handling close to 100 billion operations/day.

These systems ensure solid data flow all the way from the CDNs to recommendation systems that provide the experience uniquely suited for each user and device, and you will have a critical role to play in its success!


Do you want to work with bright engineers who love to solve hard problems? 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? This is the kind of environment that we value at Netflix. High performance is not only noticed but required.


We are looking for a seasoned, talented and motivated Senior Software Engineer to help build out the platform infrastructure to scale and enable newer explorations for personalization.  You will be expected to drive the requirements for and own large components of the infrastructure and help throughout the life cycle: architecture, design, implementation, testing and post-release support.  You will need to exhibit strong leadership and communication skills, set and successfully execute on the engineering and release priorities in a dynamic application development environment.

To be successful in this role, you must be a quick learner, have stellar software development and communication abilities, and work well in large cross-functional teams. This is a great opportunity to enhance your cloud computing skills working with a number of open source platforms, and simultaneously gain intimate knowledge of Netflix products and services.
