Netflix, Los Gatos, California

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

Netflix serves 148 million members and growing worldwide. We deploy hundreds of services, across multiple regions, tens of thousands of instances and have millions of client devices with our software installed. That's a lot of infrastructure and software that collectively work together to give customers an end product they love to use. Ensuring availability and reliability across that scale is a task that's taken on by our amazing Netflix engineers through full operational ownership of their software.

Insight Engineering builds software to provide real-time operational insight to the rest of Netflix. This requires collecting, streaming and persisting operational data, HUGE amounts of it, and making that data accessible through flexible APIs and visualizations. The Telemetry Team within Insight Engineering designs builds and operates the infrastructure that handles large scale operational data for Netflix. Think metrics, distributed traces, logs, etc. All of that machinery works in real-time, always-on and reliable resulting in a highly available and reliable Netflix.
