WHAT SETS US APART...
The Netflix app is installed on hundreds of millions of CE devices - everything from Smart TVs and streaming sticks to game consoles and cable boxes. Hidden inside is a world-class streaming video player that despite running on so many different devices requires no Preferences or Options dialog. Hence this team’s motto, “It Just Works.”
The Device Video Player Team sits at the nexus of a diverse set of innovative activities, such as new approaches to video encoding, optimizing our streaming algorithms through AB testing, and expanding our product with new interactive titles. We regularly run joint projects with many other teams at Netflix including UI, Encoding, Edge, and Open Connect. The future holds many exciting frontiers. We’re looking for an experienced engineer to support development of projects like these through contributions to our automated build and test infrastructure.
