Performance Engineering

The Performance Engineering team works with applications and services throughout Netflix's engineering organization to provide the insight, support, and tools that enable Netflix to achieve the scale, throughput, efficiency, and reliability needed to entertain the world. 

Our Work

Performance Engineering builds observability and visualization tools that help our engineers understand why an application, service, or system is behaving in a certain way. We work with hardware vendors, cloud providers, and the developers of runtimes and languages across the industry to help Netflix run its business efficiently.
