Engie went on to add that Netflix Games has jobs open for several different roles. These roles include development, production, and design among other roles. There are also several roles available for the Unreal Engine. Thankfully Netflix has been able to offer some jobs to developers especially as other publishers like Sega, Ubisoft, and Blizzard Entertainment are also laying off several employees. Netflix offering jobs to such developers is a welcome change.
