Senior Software Engineer - Partner Engineering (Bilingual)

The Partner Engineering (PE) team delivers Netflix on hundreds of millions of partner devices from smart TV's to MVPD Set Top Boxes to streaming sticks. The team collaborates with partners across the globe to deliver the Netflix Streaming Client on their devices, which is a core part of the Netflix experience.

We want to delight our customers with a service that just works, always. This requires our engineers to be involved with SoC, device drivers, and the fundamental system architecture. We are looking for an experienced, talented software engineer to ensure we repeatedly deliver a world-class highly reliable Netflix application. Our partner devices run a diverse set of operating systems including other 3rd party technologies with multiple stakeholder companies spread around the world, making the scaling of the Netflix application a unique challenge. We continue to drive forward the state of the art for streaming device product experiences, globally, through our partnerships including Comcast, Telefonica, Claro, Izzi among many others.

The Opportunity

This position will be based out of Netflix's Los Gatos office in California. As a partner engineer for Netflix, you will focus throughout the Netflix ready device lifecycle and your work will directly impact the Netflix business. You will help our partners review SoC choices, driver compatibilities, 3rd party technologies, feature feasibility detection, integration, certification, and post launch. The functionality of Netflix certified products include streaming and playback, standards driven graphics, dynamic UI, payments, security, and other innovative partner-specific adaptations. You will collaborate with multidisciplinary teams of engineers at Netflix and at our Partners. You will get an opportunity to experience the full software stack, influence our highly specialized tools, and review business processes.

Developing, certifying, and maintaining the continuously evolving Netflix experience requires continuous investments.

You will establish correctness and completeness of the Netflix app integration, continuously assess measurability to help internal workflows and systems to be able to drive continuously improved user experience.
