Netflix is the leading online video subscription service, reaching millions of households around the world, and the Netflix customer service network receives hundreds of thousands of questions and issues reports from subscribers every day. The global Technical Research team is a frontline research group responsible for investigating, troubleshooting, and documenting escalated issue reports. The results of their investigations are delivered to Netflix product engineering teams and are a critical link in maintaining Netflix service reliability for our global subscriber base.
As a Technical Research Specialist, you'll rely on your strong Netflix product knowledge, curiosity, and great judgement to identify and drive improvements in the Netflix product and Customer Support platform through the investigation of escalations.

It is a key part of our approach to innovation and paramount to our success, and so the ability to adapt and embrace Netflix culture will be critical in determining success in this role.
