The Team

The iOS Client Foundations team shepherds and builds foundational architecture and frameworks that power the Netflix iOS app. Our three core values are: Accelerate developer velocity, pave the path and set standards for App quality and experience metrics, and pave the path to build scalable app architecture (foundational scaffoldings), frameworks, documentation, and communication for iOS platforms across Netflix.
Our responsibilities include implementing large-scale future-looking foundational architecture and frameworks ranging from core UI frameworks to core infrastructure that enables existing and future innovations for product teams across Netflix. We care deeply about the performance, quality, and accessibility of the Netflix app. We're passionate about creating elegantly designed, highly performant architectures that empower engineers to build unique UI experiences used by millions of users across the globe. We partner closely with teams across Netflix to help deliver solutions that make UI development efficient and enjoyable.

We are part of a global, diverse organization that includes people of all people of all genders, sexual orientations, upbringings, nationalities, ages, and socioeconomic & educational backgrounds. We encourage anyone passionate about building compelling mobile experiences that touch audiences worldwide to apply.

The Role

We are looking for an engineer to lead the iOS core libraries, framework & infrastructure strategy and innovate how we uphold the high bar for product quality amidst growing product areas while accelerating developer velocity. This role's impact and visibility will be felt by (but not limited to) the entire iOS development community at Netflix. The engineer in this role will contribute to developer experience by building scalable libraries, frameworks & infrastructure to enhance the development of quick product feature iterations across the entire product engineering stack.
• Provide technical leadership to drive pragmatic yet deeply impactful architectural decisions that address current and future product needs.
• Help create a scalable, modular, extensible, and highly performant app that scales with high volumes of live data transactions on the app.
• A strong advocate for building transparent observability tooling and solutions that enhance developer velocity.
• Set the vision and strategy for a robust and scalable logging framework that consolidates our customers' varying needs (other engineering teams) in close collaboration with our data science team.
• Bring a wide variety of experience building frameworks/libraries with technologies like UIKit, Core Animation, Objective-C and/or Swift, and other Apple frameworks to the team.
• Refine or define hypotheses with our stakeholders in a data-driven approach that informs foundational strategy and innovations.
• Enable and ship complex product experiences with exceptional quality regularly and rapidly.
• Find ways to detect and improve code health in a fast-paced, high-commit volume culture of experimentation.
• Find solutions to prevent regressions in the product experience and improve test stability, coverage & performance.

What's Different About Us
• Scale, Impact: You'll enable engineers across multiple teams and organizations at Netflix to create best-in-class streaming UIs that hundreds of millions of members use across a broad spectrum of devices worldwide.
• Unique Technical Challenges: We build framework solutions that are flexible enough to withstand the span of use cases introduced by rapid A/B test development across a varied client stack, server, and network performance landscape, all while being ergonomic to use for the engineers we support.
• Collaboration and Communication: It's not all about the tech. We highly value the skills required to build strong relationships and collaborate effectively with a high-performing, inclusive & supportive team of engineers.
• Freedom, Responsibility, Ownership: We believe in providing engineers with the business context they need and giving them the freedom and responsibility to define project scope, define/debate architecture, determine trade-offs, and figure out the implementation details.
• Our Culture: Lastly, but most importantly, we live by our values.
