Senior Site Reliability Engineer - Edge Reliability

Netflix, Los Gatos, California

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

The Edge Engineering organization at Netflix is the front line that powers the Netflix experience.  We build and operate the tier 1 product services that Netflix apps communicate with. When a customer hits play on the Netflix app, our goal is to ensure the viewing experience works every time. With Netflix’s increased membership growth and global reach, the challenges of ensuring an uninterrupted experience grow exponentially. We recognize that manual approaches to operations do not scale, and have launched a new team in Edge Engineering to tackle the significant problems of scale facing Netflix’s service teams.   

The Edge Reliability team aims to eliminate the toil, randomization, and stress that comes with operating highly available, highly trafficked API services. We use our software engineering and distributed systems expertise to remove the friction that comes with deploying and operating large scale services while also influencing the direction of Netflix’s signature tools such as Spinnaker and Chaos Monkey. We safeguard the availability of the Netflix product while increasing the productivity of our developers.  As a member of this team, you will use your creativity and technical skill to re-imagine how we build, release, and operate Netflix’s most critical services.

If you can...

  • productively work with teammates, service teams, and platform teams to conceptualize game-changing tooling and services that serves multiple teams
  • design and build reliable solutions aimed at increasing reliability and developer velocity
  • drive alignment of service engineering best practices across multiple teams
  • think like a service operator to envision a variety of potential solutions for a set of given problems

… and you have…

  • 5+ years experience in a software engineering or site reliability engineer role
  • Experience with highly trafficked web services
  • Experience operating services running in cloud providers, preferably AWS
  • A passion for reliability and quality
  • A passion for fully automating manual tasks and processes
then we would love to talk to you about helping us scale Netflix for the next 100 million customers.

Netflix values Freedom and Responsibility as it continues to reinvent the industry.  You can learn more about our culture and history on our Life at Netflix page.
