Our team is looking for a Senior Security Software Engineer to join the team and help us drive security improvements across our Consumer Products, with a focus on Netflix Gaming ecosystem. The protocols our team secures represent the security building blocks for user authentication, user authorization and secure transport and are deployed on every single one of the 100’s of millions of Netflix client devices used in over 190 countries by more than 200 million paid members. These building blocks are being enhanced for the new threats and scale as Netflix offers gaming. Help us securely build Netflix!
If you’re a Netflix customer, you have benefited from the work of the Security Protocols Engineering team. We design and implement end-to-end security protocol that powers Netflix consumer products, and holistically integrate them in the Netflix ecosystem, within a range of client applications and backend services. Our team is highly cross functional, inside and outside of Netflix. We work with Netflix product edge, cloud and client engineering teams. We also work with third-party game developers and platform partners that integrate our client SDK.
Security in the Freedom & Responsibility culture of Netflix means that much of our work is accomplished through influence, not mandates. A highly collaborative mindset is key.
This is a deeply technical team, who draws from knowledge of networks, cryptography, operating systems, and software architecture.
We are part of the larger Consumer Product Security & Trust organization, which collaborates with device partners and DRM to improve security across the industry. To learn more about CPST (formerly DCS for Device & Content Security) at Netflix, check out this episode of the WeAreNetflix podcast.
