Is it too quiet? Is it too loud? Does the sound make sense with what you’re seeing? Are they speaking your language? Can you understand what’s being said? Do you feel immersed? Do you feel like you are there? These are the questions the Audio Algorithms team at Netflix tries to answer so that our members don’t think about the act of listening at all. Our team is responsible for answering these questions for the millions of hours of sound that are needed to produce and deliver great stories to our members around the globe.
We’re building new services that integrate machine learning and audio signal processing for all the different ways sound is produced, understood, and distributed within our studio productions and for our members. You will have the opportunity to influence, architect and own end to end what we build and how we scale.
We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer with experience in distributed, cloud-based application development (AWS, Azure, or Google App Engine) using microservices architecture with RPC services and someone who is passionate about audio.
You will be creating services that support signal processing, content analysis, and streaming technology that enable the audio production and delivery of Netflix content. You will work with a variety of teams that build out backend infrastructure and our studio production technology, but ultimately you will own the design, creation, and support of the tools you build. Your work will support a range of audio applications in the connected studio leveraging your large-scale development experience and a background in streaming media.
