Data Experience - Senior UX Engineer

Netflix | Los Gatos, CA

Posted Date 9/17/2018

Netflix is the leading online video subscription service, reaching millions of US and international households. Netflix became well known as a data driven company for our personalized recommendations, but our use of data doesn't stop there. From testing new features for the website to measuring performance across many devices to making wise choices about content, we use our petabytes of data to move the business forward. To do that we have built a big data platform that, along with the rest of our infrastructure, lives in the cloud and will continue to grow with us as we expand.

This platform is used by engineers, analysts and data scientists to leverage our data to do interesting and impactful analysis and allow Netflix to continue to innovate. The Data Experience team is working to make it as easy and efficient as possible to work with all of this data. We’re building a cohesive experience to make information more accessible, insightful and actionable by improving discovery, surfacing context and enabling self-service.

To deliver a meaningful user experience, we are building a lightweight browser-based application that provides our stakeholders a consistent way to interact with the big data platform. Our work will enable engineers to leverage complex relationships between massive datasets while providing them a way to extend the platform by reusing features and patterns.

We are looking for someone who is deeply technical, obsesses over tiny details, and has an unwavering passion for building delightful products. The ideal candidate should be an expert in developing reusable components and features for browser-based apps.
