Engineering Leader - Big Data Warehouse Services

  • Los Gatos, California
  • Data Engineering and Infrastructure
Netflix is the world's leading internet TV network and we strive to bring engaging stories from many cultures to people all across the globe. With over 130 million members globally, the data platform is the core foundation enabling all of our product decisions that directly impact our customer experience when they watch Netflix.
Our platform runs tens of thousands of jobs and processes over a trillion events a day. We support over a thousand data analysts, data scientists, and engineers across the company to make business decisions. We have arguably built one of the largest petabyte scale data warehouses in the public cloud. Here is a glimpse of our architecture.
Though our architecture is mature and well defined, we are far from where we want to be. Our data volume continue to grow at a rapid pace driven by member growth, member engagement and our desire to better serve our members using data.

  • Build a cohesive ecosystem of systems/services to change the game on how we understand the taxonomy and manage the data we collected in the data warehouse.
  • Continue to scale our data warehouse infrastructure as our data volume continue to increase and our business use cases continue to expand.
  • Lead and grow a team of top-talent distributed systems software engineers.

Winning Attributes:

  • You have experience in building and leading a team of senior engineers to reach their potential.
  • You have experience in building and managing large scale distributed services that are shared across teams.
  • You are a strong partner and can drive cross-functional projects forward.
