Senior Software Engineer

About the TeamThe Netflix API team, part of Edge Engineering organization, enables signup, content discovery, and playback on 1000+ device types. The team creates a unified abstraction and aggregation layer over disparate Netflix mid-tier systems, enabling device partner teams to build innovative user experiences through a consistent API layer. The team also ensures the resiliency and scalability of this critical API tier. Additionally, the team makes partner ecosystem experiences possible by enabling discovery of Netflix content outside of Netflix apps e.g. on cable set-top-boxes. The availability and functionality of the Netflix experience is only as good as the effectiveness of this API. The top challenges for the team are delivering APIs for our rapidly evolving product, balancing speed with API consistency, and improving the architecture to handle the scale coming with the next 100M members.

The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
