The Company and Product Strategy:
Instant, high quality streaming on a vast array of devices is a core part of Netflix's strategy for the future. We partner with device manufacturers and service providers to make this happen. Our first partner product to support instant streaming to TVs was launched in May 2008 -- almost 10 years later, the Netflix application is available on well over one hundred million individual devices worldwide. Our partnerships include global television makers, like Google, Apple, Samsung, Sony, and LG, as well as many of the world’s largest operators, like Comcast, Virgin Media, and Orange. The Netflix Device Platform makes this possible.
In order to help our partners add the Netflix streaming service to their devices, we work very closely with these engineering teams around the world to quickly integrate our application and closely monitor the quality of the result. A major differentiator for Netflix is that we provide test content and toolsets that assist our partners with the integration our application as well as help them to assess the quality of their efforts. Building, scaling, and supporting these externally facing tests and tools is the charter of this team and the focus of this role.
Netflix’s Device Integration Team directly impacts the quality of products that millions of people use every day and the automation engineers within this group play a key part in our app’s success on these devices. This lean team of top notch engineers have deep technical skill and an aptitude for evaluating quality, but are looking to add more talent to the mix.
If you are an automation engineer, who has a strong quality assurance and development background with a deep knowledge in testing consumer audio/video devices, we want to talk to you! In this role, you will design, implement, and maintain the Netflix Integration Test Suite used by the world’s leading TV and multimedia device manufacturers, such as Samsung, LG, Sony and Roku.
When you see the joy that viewers around the world derive from their Netflix experience, you will take pride in the fact that your direct actions, tests, and automated tooling helped make that integration possible.
