DescriptionNetflix is reinventing the way the world watches movies and television. Over 204 million members around the globe already enjoy our award-winning content, but most of our growth still lies ahead. To support this, we continue to expand our content budget and are experiencing hyper-growth within our Studio User Interface team.

The Studio Animation UI team is a part of our larger User Interface team focused on studio applications. Our engineering team builds tools for creators and the teams that support them. We work closely with the newly created Netflix Animation Studios. Because of this, we are looking for team members who are locally near the Animation studio.

People who do well on this team are self-motivated engineers with a passion for our business and for technology innovation. We look for individuals with deep knowledge of JavaScript, CSS, and HTML who are comfortable writing custom JavaScript but also know when to apply off-the-shelf solutions for the problem. We also value people who are passionate about user experience and have an eye for improving the UI. We currently work with TypeScript, React, GraphQL, and Node.js, but the ability to adapt to changing technology is an important strength. Any experience with WebAssembly, WebRTC, Web Audio API, and web sockets would be a bonus.

Our team includes people of all genders, sexual orientation, parents, the self-taught, the university-educated, and people of a wide variety of nationalities, ages, and socio-economic backgrounds. Diverse teams are strong teams, and we encourage those with varied identities, backgrounds, and experiences to apply.
