Judgment: You adapt to deliver solutions that balance expediency and durability.

Own: You are mindful of the end-to-end flow and full lifetime of the solution you provide.

Success in this role means:

  • Enabling a growing number of game studio partners to easily develop, integrate, test, and validate their games with the Netflix games platform.

  • Strongly connecting with product management, XD and technology teams as we iterate and evolve strategy.

  • Engaging with game technologies, third-party software/middleware tools providers, and partners to assess options and innovate.

Who we’re looking for:

  • 5+ years of full stack development experience

  • Familiarity with the games industry and game developer platforms

  • Prior work in game development tools and productivity solutions 

  • Strong JavaScript development with React and Node.js (Java skills a plus)

At Netflix, we carefully consider a wide range of compensation factors to determine your personal top of market. We rely on market indicators to determine compensation and consider your specific job, skills, and experience to get it right. These considerations can cause your compensation to vary and will also be dependent on your location. 

The overall market range for roles in this area of Netflix is typically $90,000 - $900,000.
