Want to work at Netflix? What skills do you need?

When the COVID-19 pandemic started and millions of people began to isolate themselves at home, Netflix found itself in a very strange position. On the one hand, the demand for shows and movies has increased. On the other hand, it faced the same difficulties as any other company: managing a remote workforce while trying to provide its services in extreme conditions.


That Netflix succeeded without many obstacles is, of course, proof of the company's focus on cutting-edge technology. If you are a fan of Netflix (not just movies) you will know that the core of the company is extremely innovative.

Netflix has a reputation for offering its engineers extremely high salaries, at least compared to other companies technology. In the image below you will see the comparison of salaries of Netflix in relation to other technology companies (information from levels.fyi).

If you're interested in a job at Netflix, it's worth knowing what skills are needed for open positions work. To help with the situation, we turned to Burning Glass, which collects and analyzes millions of jobs across America. We have limited our query window to the last 90 days, as well as technical jobs at Netflix. With these parameters, here are the skills that Netflix is ​​looking for:

As you can see, the top programming languages ​​it looks for are Java and Python as it makes sense since Netflix handles huge amounts of data. The skills Netflix is ​​looking for reflect those of the big tech companies, with an emphasis on people who know older, ubiquitous programming languages ​​and the principles of data infrastructure and analysis.

You may be wondering why cutting edge technologies like machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are no longer a widespread part of these skill distributions. While Companies as Netflix is ​​more than willing to pay huge sums to experts who know the above, they usually need more technicians who can handle the basic problems that arise on a daily basis. Hundreds of experts are needed data and its developers Python to keep a company running. While few specialists with a PhD in AI are enough to meet the needs of the company.

With that in mind, let's take a look at the top Netflix jobs over the last 90 days, also using data from Burning Glass:

For at least that three-month period, Netflix was in dire need of seniors developers / engineers, as well as various types of product managers. From a specific perspective, you can see this as an encouraging sign: Despite the pandemic that is forcing companies around the world to change tactics, Netflix continues to focus on its long-term goals.
