Jem Young


Jem is a tall engineer at Netflix who loves dogs and clean code. I've had the privilege of working for a variety of companies ranging from tiny startups to a multi-billion dollar tech company and I've been fortunate enough to work with a lot really smart people along the way. I enjoy coding across the stack but my true passion lies in JavaScript and building clean UX.
