How to get interviewed at Netflix?
While GOOG and FB invite pretty much everyone, N seems to be very selective. A few years ago I managed to fail (!) initial phone screen with a recruiter girl. I tried applying again later, but no one responded.
Also - is it possible to work there as SWE and not get involved with the Java stack? If not C or C++ I can do Golang - I hear they use it.

- When I play basketball, I sometimes gets slapped on my face when I go for a layup. I know the opponent intended for the ball, not my face, so I don't get mad, it's not intentional. On the other hand, if some random dude just slapped my face during a meeting at work, then I'd report to HR.
There are higher priority things I'd much rather see being changed around me than the words people use in the USA. Eg. Crappy roads in NYC, bad healthcare, dangerous neighborhoods, bad education system, low quality standard of living compared to many European countries.
- Wow, some people are really quick with conclusions here - like calling someone a jerk. How can one take "a girl" as a sign of disrespect, or as a sign of me considering her professional role not important? I guess it tells something about you.
But I agree I am probably not a good fit there - looks like N culture is bullshit - at least, judging by some people here.
- OP, you sound quite stubborn. You’re saying you don’t agree with me, and that “some people might think similar” to me, but you honestly don’t see why using “girl” would offend a grown woman. This is why you aren’t advancing in your career. You don’t take feedback well. Just my observation from our limited interaction.Aug 19, 2018 4
- Can’t you just refer to her as the recruiter? When you call her a girl, your implying she’s a not a grown adult. She’s a woman, not a girl.
- Fuck, this is what he meant :(
I didn't mean any disrespect. I guess I'm showing my age - kind of assumed any woman would take it as a compliment to be called a girl.
But no, this could't be the reason - I didn't address her as "hey girl", or smth.
May be I struggled with a - very stupid - question of "why you want to work for us". I thought being geographically close is good enough reason. Which is, for any reasonable person. But some people told me afterwards that I should have came up with some kind of bullshit about "changing the would", or something.
- Based on what I’ve read here, you’re not a culture fit. Your skills will not even come into consideration without it. Read the culture deck. We don’t hire brilliant jerks.
You may attest to your brilliance but the way you communicate attests to you being a jerk.
- I agree about the first post but through the rest of his communications he degraded in my eyes. This may have been a pattern the “recruiter girl” (ugh) notes and deems him not a fit.
That being said, the response of wanting to work at Netflix was due to location would have been enough of a concern to knock him out, at least from me as an HM.Aug 19, 2018 1
- Yeah I agree. As an HM here, I couldn't live without my talent partner lol. So for him to diminish the importance of their screen probably indicated he isn't a fit too, now that I think about it.
And yeah the rest of the communication on the sub threads was definitely subpar.Aug 19, 2018 3
- Facebook kEeN82Guess it depends on your role and their openings. I had the opposite experience of being recruited for a couple teams over and over again over the years, but not interested. Then wound up at FB for a role that’s better suited to me
