Meshenberg, who helped build Netflix’s platform and was involved in key initiatives to create a more consistent service for viewers, joined Apple’s internet-services organisation this week, according to the WSJ.

Although the appointment hasn’t yet been announced by Apple, Meshenberg has changed his job title to ‘Apple’s engineering leader’ on LinkedIn.
