Job Description
Strategist, Product Creative Studio (Non-Fiction)

The Product Creative Studio (PCS) team partners with content creators, marketing and distributors to define how the content is creatively represented on Netflix to members around the world.
Our purpose is to deliver the most compelling discovery experience through artwork, video, and copy to connect our millions of global subscribers to our content. At its core, the PCS Strategist role is grounded in achieving creative excellence for all the assets that represent a title to help members engage with something they love. This role will marry entertainment and visual storytelling with data and innovation to develop assets for touch points across the Netflix experience.

The PCS Strategist position uses both the left and right brain equally and requires a personality and skill set that can easily go from art to science and back again. The Product Creative team creates compelling assets to connect our subscribers to the Netflix content they love (in this case, Nonfiction) which encompasses unscripted and documentary series and films. The strategist brainstorms, coordinates, and socializes with multiple stakeholder teams to ensure a seamless launch on a global scale. Through a partnership with our Content team, and external creators and showrunners, you will develop beautiful and inspiring creative in the form of static artwork, motion, graphics and video elements to tell a story and engage audiences in our brand.

Netflix is the world's leading streaming entertainment service with 208 million paid memberships in over 190 countries who are already enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, and on any device. At Netflix, we have an insatiable need to continually improve our product experience and the creative elements that support it and this team sits at the forefront of the effort.

Responsibilities

The PCS Strategist is an ambassador for Netflix Nonfiction titles, an arbiter of creative diversity and a central hub of knowledge and strategy.

Strategists oversee the lifespan of a show from creative development to product deployment across multiple platforms. You will leverage content, marketing, PR, social campaign elements, product strategy and testing to create a suite of valuable assets to surprise and delight Netflix subscribers.

You will build and strengthen relationships internally across teams and externally within the creative community. You will define the creative look and feel of a title-telling its story through static artwork, video, and textual evidence to represent our content catalog.

Garnering a deep understanding of product strategy will be inherent to your success as well.

• Writing creative briefs based on data and insights from partner teams and tools
