Job Description
Distributed Systems Engineer (L5) - Delivery

It's an amazing time to be joining Netflix as we continue to transform entertainment. We deliver billions of hours of movies and TV shows per month to more than 260 million members in over 190 countries. At Netflix, we want to entertain the world. To achieve this, we must be able to rapidly build and ship innovative experiences for our members and creators all around the globe.

| Who we are

Delivery Core is a full-stack platform engineering team (we have frontend and backend engineers in one team) that enables continuous delivery of software and infrastructure changes across all Netflix services. We work cross-functionally with partners across engineering to make working inside the Netflix engineering ecosystem more efficient and enjoyable for all. We focus on increasing productivity, minimizing toil, and increasing the frequency and safety of software delivery.

| What you could work on
Our team is primarily responsible for the developer platforms that roll out software and infrastructure changes to the entire Netflix fleet. We do this through our Continuous Delivery (CD) system Spinnaker, and our higher level declarative delivery-based platform, Managed Delivery. We are more closely unifying these products into one cohesive unified Delivery experience. Some example goals for projects include:
- Reduce friction and time to deploy software across our internal fleet
- Improve the safety of infrastructure changes
- Improve ease of use for configuring application deployment specifications

| What We'll Expect From You

We are seeking a backend, distributed systems focused engineer who is comfortable writing, improving, maintaining, and sunsetting critical services at tremendous scale. Below are the specific behaviors and competencies important for this role.

• Cross-Functional – You enjoy collaborating with multiple teams on creating solutions and supporting solutions with a myriad of sometimes conflicting requirements.
• Seeking Excellence – You enjoy the pursuit of engineering excellence by evangelizing, establishing and iterating on best practices.
• Curiosity – You are curious and enjoy working on ambiguous problems where the solutions are not (yet) well defined.
• Communication – You are proficient in verbal and written mediums at explaining topics that the audience was not familiar with previously.

Core competencies
• You possess strong software skills in Java or other JVM languages.
• You are experienced with operating complex distributed systems components (like databases, APIs (REST, gRPC, GraphQL), and controllers). You know how to debug them and how they can fail.
• You are proficient in backend services and integration layers.
• You are able to break down complexity, iterate, and communicate progress to a wide variety of partners and stakeholders

Helpful competencies
• You possess strong software skills in Java or Kotlin.
• You have worked on a developer platform team where other engineers were your customers.
• You have worked on schema changes in a federated GraphQL gateway.
• You are familiar with the Spring Boot framework.
• You are proficient with high volume data stores.

| What to Expect From Us
• High Impact - your work will touch every engineer at the company and be crucial for the ongoing success of Netflix.
• Stunning Colleagues - you will be working with other excellent people with diverse perspectives, who value collaboration, working to excel as the ''dream team''.
• Energizing Challenges - there is a wealth of opportunity when working on complex technical projects and our culture both enables and encourages you to rise to the challenges.
• Feedback – you will constantly have opportunities for growth because meaningful positive and constructive feedback is part of everyday life at Netflix.
Our compensation structure consists solely of an annual salary; we do not have bonuses. You choose each year how much of your compensation you want in salary versus stock options. To determine your personal top of market compensation, we rely on market indicators and consider your specific job family, background, skills, and experience to determine your compensation in the market range. The range for this role is $100,000 - $720,000.
