Netflix is the world's leading streaming video service, and our growth is accelerating. As we expand internationally, we are continually upgrading our cloud-based infrastructure to help us scale and move even faster. This flexibility is the key driver for our growth, while continuing to present new and exciting challenges for our engineers to build a reliable service within a constantly evolving environment. At Netflix, we are pushing the limits of these technologies every day.

As a member of the Cloud Solutions team, you will build the tools and infrastructure to support the company’s operations in the cloud. In particular, you may contribute to the Simian Army (aka, “The Monkeys”). Chaos Monkey and Janitor Monkey have been released to open source and we have a long line of simians waiting to be released , such as Conformity Monkey, which finds instances that don’t adhere to best practices and shuts them down. We would like to expand our team to continue work on the monkeys as well as another open source project, Edda , which provides a history of your cloud processes. The monkeys are written in Java and Edda is written in Scala.

You possess these qualities:
- You are an expert in distributed, highly concurrent, web-scale systems that are fault-tolerant and run 24x7 with unparalleled availability.
- You thrive on building platform infrastructure that every team uses and depends on every day.
- You are excited to build tools that will improve the reliability of the cloud and automate our AWS operations.
- You are effective working with multiple teams.
- You have high standards in everything you do.
- You can balance multiple tasks.

You have these skills:
- Strong Java/JVM experience.
- Groovy/Grails experience.
- Database modeling, design, and tuning.
- Large-scale distributed systems experience.

You may even have these skills:
- Knowledge of cloud computing platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure.
- NoSQL technologies and non-relational data stores.
- Python, Scala, Shell scripting.
