It's an amazing time to be joining Netflix as we continue to transform entertainment globally. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.
Our growing global Consumer Products team brings our members' favorite stories to real life through products and experiences. The team is responsible for overseeing the business and creative execution across merchandise creation, product development, licensee relationships, publishing, marketing, as well as a global division focused on live experiences.

We are looking for a Licensing Coordinator to support our consumer products business growth in the APAC region, mainly focusing on Japan. You will be working closely with the Consumer Products and cross-functional teams in Japan/APAC to bring our content to life via compelling products. You will work to license products across all categories and prioritize best-fit partners in each category that will lead to an established (and repeatable) relationship.

• Prepare, distribute, and track deal memos and final agreements to ensure deals are processed efficiently through all steps.
• Partner with Product Development & Creative teams to keep product development on track to attain commercial objectives.
• Facilitate receipt of forecasts and send royalty payment reminders as needed.
• Assist in compiling licensing recaps following product launches.
• Work closely with Consumer Products Design & Creative and Merchandise Strategy teams to build pitch documents.
• Oversee and manage selected licensee businesses as required.

What we need from you:
• Demonstrated 3+ years of experience in the entertainment industry, preferably in outbound IP licensing and/or any relevant brand/marketing partnerships.
• Experience working with reputable brands across different industries (entertainment studio, retailer, agency).
• Creative/out-of-the-box thinker.
• Ability to thrive under pressure in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
• Cross-functional teamwork knowledge.
• Possesses attention to detail with superb organizational skills.
• Multi-tasking extraordinaire with the ability to prioritize.
