Senior Full Stack Engineer - Studio Production Engineering

Netflix, Los Gatos, California

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

Twenty years ago Netflix disrupted content delivery by mailing you a DVD for a flat monthly fee. A decade and a billion DVDs shipped later Netflix disrupted content delivery once again and began streaming video on demand. Today, Netflix has become the leading global internet TV service through innovations in content delivery, and we are poised for yet another disruption, this time in content creation. 

The Studio Production Engineering team started in 2015 with a team of four, in building an experimental application for tracking production metadata. Several studio applications and many new team members later, we are now an entire department within Netflix, known as Studio Engineering.

Our team is charged with developing tools that will empower the cast and crew to create the best content they can. If an app is used on-set (production-facing) or by the studio itself (back-office), we are responsible for it.

In this role you will...

  • Drive the design, development and implementation in order to turn client’s pain-points into simple and elegant solutions that are loved.
  • Partner and communicate effectively with teams you work with.
  • Take full ownership of a product or feature from concept to launch.
  • Test the software you write to ensure we deliver the highest quality product.

About you...

  • Experience with MVC platforms such as Ruby on Rails and/or Ember.js.
  • Experience with front-end languages such as Javascript, HTML, CSS.
  • Experience designing and developing integration solutions using Web Services (RESTful APIs).
  • Successful track record of delivering quality results in complex cross-functional projects.
  • Deep understanding of cloud architecture and application deployment.
  • Ability to collaborate with clients in order to understand pain-points and present solution effectively is a plus.
  • Ability to straddle programming languages and platforms with ease.

Extra credit if...

  • You've created an Ember.js addon.
  • You know what a progressive web app is.
  • You've created a Ruby Gem.
  • You have Java experience.
  • You are an open-source contributor.
  • You've built a mobile app (Android or iOS).
  • You have used gRPC in a project.

A few logistical details...

  • This position is located in Los Gatos, CA.
  • Remote is not ok.
  • We provide relocation benefits.
  • We provide visa assistance where possible.
If you have an eye for software design, a mind for asking questions and synthesizing information into actionable work, and the personality to want to learn from AND teach your teammates - we would like to talk to you. If you happen to have any of those specific skills already...even more so.
