Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies


Netflix is revolutionizing entertainment. We deliver billions of hours of movies and TV shows per month to more than 130 million accounts globally. With our growing investment in original content, the Netflix Studio is a key part of our mission to produce content to entertain a diverse global audience. 

In this role, you will build and lead a high-impact engineering team focused on cloud-based infrastructure for content production. As digital workflows are becoming fully mainstream and demand for digital creative work in VFX, animation and post-production grows rapidly, there is a strong need to be able to provide an equally rapidly growing global workforce with the high-performance tools they need to get the job done. We believe that cloud-based infrastructure, e.g. cloud-based virtual workstations, will play a big role in satisfying these needs.

You will provide thought leadership in this space and will be able to lean on the expertise of world-class cloud infrastructure, performance and network teams to solve difficult technical and operational problems at the intersection between cloud infrastructure providers like AWS and creative tools like Shotgun, Nuke Compositor.
