The truth about Netflix salaries

Netflix does not hire senior people outside management. If they do, they are hired despite their experience, because managers are the only team leads. All of the high salaries are people who have been there for a few years because the raise is 100k a year up to about 600.

Netflix doesn't hire anyone over 400k. They count mandatory health benefits and 401k as base so the number the recruiter gives is around 425k.

So it's like working a 160/hr contract, which is great but not exceptional.

    Your grocery sources are wrong. I’m a new hire that doesn’t have people reporting to me and I make much more TC than when at Facebook. Even accounting for all the fringe benefits (food, healthcare, etc).

      The problem is that if your team gets big enough, you get more than one of those leads. And then there has to be someone designated a "the lead" to arbitrate disputes before they gouge each other's eyes with letter openers.

      I have a feeling that you have built some very strict mindset with a set of terms and assumptions which may have little relevance in the contemporary software industry. Don't you think that it could have been one of the reasons why it didn't work out for your with Netflix? Simply because you had some expectations and assumptions which can be simply wrong.

      Yeah, I mean that is how large scale projects work. If you've built an orchestrator for a website going millions of tps I'd like to see how that happened.

      OP you’ve made it pretty clear in this thread why Netflix didn’t hire you. Hint: it has nothing to do with your being too senior.

    Specifically the OP was rejected by Netflix recruiter screen. Now he’s confident that because he was rejected that it must be that Netflix does not hire senior people. He then tells lies about the salary because he just can’t believe it.

    Desperate guy, this OP. Stop obsessing over Netflix. They don’t want you, so leave it alone. There are plenty of other jobs, this isn’t a good match, simple as that. It’s like when you like a girl and she doesn’t like you, you can’t force it.

    @Albertsons, you keep saying that and it’s not true. I have been a tech lead for 5 years and leading multiple teams even most recently. I proudly put that on my resume and Netflix called me back the next day. I’ve passed the recruiter screen, hiring manager talks, technical phone screen and I have an on-site next week. The whole time I’ve talked at length about my leadership abilities but how my interest is IC. They fully understood and liked my input with them so far.

    Just because someone has leadership doesn’t mean Netflix won’t interview them. Myself and the other guy in this thread are proof of that. Will you drop it now?

      Did you actually and non-ironically just claim if you use AWS, you have no network architecture?

      No wonder you were rejected.

      That isn't the issue. The problems Netflix os solves don't even exist anymore, circuit breakers and such are part of an app mesh. Gateways are 90s

      Etubrute - how is it to work at Apple ?
      May 5
    • Apple etubrute
      Apple is great. The transition to services is a huge lift for the software biz here. Apple has a lot to learn though with how it builds services in the backend though. Apple doesn’t do cloud for example. There’s challenges and opportunity there for people with the know-how and leadership willing to pony up the investment.

      Apple does cloud, just other people's clouds.

    Why go so far out of your way to post incorrect info?
    May 5 20
    • Facebook public2
      How does that not help? I suggested you attend and meet people. Ask about teams and get to know the company. At best you will find a good fit and at worst you leave with some good contacts and a free meal.
