Senior Software Engineer

The Netflix API is the front door to the Netflix Streaming service and is used to power hundreds of devices. The API is handling over 1 billion requests a day (over 30,000 requests per second at peak times). By some accounts, Netflix is 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 as it enables Netflix and its partners to rapidly innovate on new Netflix scenarios and support new devices.

Because the API plays such an important role in the company’s success, it was recently redesigned to better serve our streaming needs. For more details, visit: http://techblog.netflix.com/2012/07/embracing-differences-inside-netflix.html
