Job Description

It's an exciting time to join Netflix as we continue to transform entertainment globally. We are bringing new stories to millions of people worldwide by promoting our original, exclusive content. A key to growth is our ability to translate and adapt culturally most things Netflix creates, from beautiful user interfaces to cinematic original programming. As we move beyond 183 million members and hundreds of partnerships worldwide, we are looking for talented individuals to drive better creative outcomes for our global presence.

Like all great companies, we strive to hire the best and we value integrity, excellence, respect, inclusivity, and collaboration. What is special about Netflix, among other things, is our Culture.

We treat each country we enter differently since it is not just about translation, it is about providing our audience with an experience that feels local, and we do it at scale. The Globalization team is looking for an experienced Brazilian Portuguese Language Manager to manage the overall language strategy of all Portuguese language localized product and content assets for our Brazilian audience.

The successful candidate will work closely with external resources and internal stakeholders and partners at Netflix to create the best localized Portuguese language content assets and product experience for our growing member base in Brazil.

The Brazilian Portuguese Language Manager will be based in São Paulo (Brazil) and will be part of the Latam Globalization team, reporting to a US-based Manager.
