Netflix is available on more than a 1000 different devices, including personal computers, connected devices, smart phones, tablets and game consoles.  
A very important part of the Netflix service is the cloud based media transcoding infrastructure that generates the petabytes of streams and playback to support the growing content catalog and the device footprint. In short, anytime a subscriber in on the service, they are viewing images and streaming content produced in this media cloud. We have a very large scale, massively parallel, highly available compute farm in the Amazon elastic compute infrastructure powered by our purpose built software to serve the complex media processing needs of Netflix. We have also building out our innovation platforms that facilitates rapid prototyping and rollout of new media formats and user experiences build around these new formats.

  • Build frameworks and reusable components to quickly build and rollout features


  • You are a full stack developer with experience in modern web frameworks and writing REST APIs.
  • You are passionate about owning the design and implementation of feature set as a whole: the UI and all the APIs that go along with it
  • You enjoy coding on all layers of the stack and care deeply about code quality, performance, and execution.
  • You value test-driven development and continuous integration/deployment.
  • You can quickly respond to the changing business needs to roll out functionality in small increments rather than a big bang approach.
  • 5+ years of web application development experience in modern web frameworks like ReactJS, NodeJS, AngularJS, Backbone.js, jQuery, Spring MVC, Grails, Bootstrap, Knockout, etc.
  • Experience in server side development, Service Oriented Architecture and data persistence technologies (SQL and NoSQL)

Bonus points:

  • Experience with Cloud Computing platforms: Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google App Engine or similar
  • Experience NoSQL databases
  • Experience and interest in image and video processing
