Netflix 2 yoe

I'm looking for a new job and I was interested in Netflix and their culture, but I only have 2 yoe. I have 2 questions (preferably for Netflix employees with 2 yoe):

How difficult was the technical part of the interview process (I know that they focus heavily on the culture, but they still must validate technical competency)?

How has it been since you joined? Netflix has the culture of finding outstanding engineers in-place of adequate engineers, so how did you prove yourself as an A+ engineer considering the lack of exp. Is there an understanding that you'll need time to improve due to the low exp?

TC: 125k

Thanks in advance for your time and advice.

      Yes, that's what I figured. It's just that I've seen a few ppl on here comment that they've got in with <3 yoe.

      Did you have to work hard to become an outstanding engineer (compared to those with more experience)? Was there room for growing from mistakes?

      There are no outstanding engineers. Only Sr engineers

    Honestly confused, how can you be A+ engineer and at the same time have low experience and need "understanding that you will need time"?

      Maybe you mean "potential"?

      Unfortunately most hiring managers are looking for people to hit the ground running, this usually goes hand in hand with experience.

      Stay focused/determined is only a matter of time.

      I was actually looking to clear that confusion since I've seen some blind members say that they have <3 yoe but work at Netflix.

      Likely PHDs. Technically we don't care about YOE but as I said, how good you are at something, wisdom on a subject, the ability to make smart decisions on a subject tend to go hand in hand with experience.

      Just apply and see what happens I guess you never know.
