Netflix is enjoyed by more than 200 million members around the globe, entertaining new audiences every day. We use data to power almost every decision in our mission to entertain the world. Our members reside in over 190 countries, many of which have their own data protection and privacy laws and expectations. We at Netflix are committed to upholding the highest standards of consumer privacy and data protection for all our members worldwide.

The privacy focused pod within the Security and Platform Data Engineering team partners with Privacy Engineering and our internal Legal stakeholders to ensure we are being responsible stewards of our members’ data. This means enabling transparency by giving members access to their data on demand. It also means understanding what data we retain about our users, where it is stored, who has access to it and how it is being used. In addition to that we are subject to various laws and regulations globally, which require us to handle data in accordance with standards set by the respective local authorities. Our team builds tools, frameworks and systems which enable us to deliver successfully on these member commitments and regulatory obligations.

This role is focused on building an internal framework to capture member consent data in a centralized location for various regulatory and legal use cases. We are looking for a Data Engineer with solid distributed data processing skills using technologies such as Spark, Presto, Flink and/or Kafka to help consolidate consent data from various internal systems and support new use cases as our business evolves and expands. In addition to that, the ideal candidate will have great data intuition and share our passion for continuously improving the ways we handle our members’ data at Netflix.

  • Passionate about consumer data protection and privacy
  • Highly proficient in at least one of Java, Python or Scala with at least 2 years of software/data engineering experience
  • Comfortable with complex SQL
  • Able to engineer elegant data pipelines using big data technologies (e.g. Iceberg, Presto, Spark, Flink) on large scale data sets
  • Adept at taking vague requirements and crystallizing them into scalable data solutions
  • Excited about operating independently, demonstrating excellence, and learning new technologies and frameworks

What you will do:

  • Engineer efficient, adaptable and scalable data pipelines to process structured and unstructured data
  • Partner with our privacy engineering and legal stakeholders to build tools and frameworks which enable us to be responsible stewards of member data
  • Maintain and rethink existing pipelines to improve scalability and maintainability
  • Join a stunning team of data engineers with diverse skill sets, partnering closely with analytics engineering and data science counterparts
