We work with one of the largest and richest data at Netflix, and our platform makes it easier for our customers to use this data in a meaningful way. We collaborate with many teams across Netflix. For example, we help understand the user engagement with Netflix apps, the apps performance, improve ML recommendation and personalization algorithms, drive new product feature experimentation, power analytics dashboards, or understand the efficiency of content production.
