I applied for "software engineer - all teams" at Lyft 3 days ago and also applied for about 4 roles at Netflix. I haven't heard back from both.

I'm really interested in Lyft & Netflix and have already started interviewing with other companies.

Is it possible to still get a referral or should I just wait and see?

    Why leaving AWS ? I feel learning opportunity is more at AWS compared to Lyft

    You can try emailing one of their recruiters on LinkedIn. AFAIK, a referral for Netflix only matters if the referrer works closely with or are in the same team as the one you applied to. I applied to Netflix in mid September and heard back from them 1st week of November. The recruiter did apologize for the long wait though. Anyway, after a call with their recruiter, everything moves very quickly.

      I hope you understand this is one case where sharing my TC could potentially hurt my negotiation prospects cos I might need to DM a recruiter from this post

    I had to keep applying to Lyft every two days for two months before recruiters finally noticed me. Felt like a midget jumping up and down at a bar to get a bartenders attention, but I have an on-site now.
