A bit about Netflix:

Netflix is the leading provider of streaming video, reaching over 200 million paid subscribers in more than 190 countries and territories worldwide. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected screen, all without commercials or commitments.

A bit about the role:

Do you like creative experimentation and challenging the creative status quo? Are you a strategic ideator who is able to think high-level and an executor who isn't afraid to get their hands dirty?

At Netflix's Product Brand team, our mission is to revolutionize the way our brand is created and presented in product experiences, finding new ways for prospective and current Netflix members to discover our brand through creative visual design, video editorial, product UI and sound design.
