Jem Young

Sr Software Engineer
Netflix

Jem Young is an innovative and self-motivated full stack developer, who holds a Computer Science degree. Although his programing proficiencies include Python, PHP, AngularJS, Backbone, and React, his true passion lies in JavaScript and clean UX. As a programmer, he has the ability to see beyond the implementation details in front of him and code with the big picture in mind.

Jem acknowledges that to keep pace with emerging technologies, any engineer worth his salt must spend time studying. To Jem, reading is not enough; he believes that to fully grasp a concept, one must be able to clearly explain it to someone else. With this in mind, Jem’s blog Ducking in Subways: The Ramblings of a Tall Engineer was born, as a means for him to work out the kinks

He is currently based in San Francisco where he functions as a Senior Engineer at Netflix, and is part of the User Interface team.
