Netflix is recruiting for a  seasoned Director of HR to join our team in Amsterdam to support our rapidly growing EMEA Marketing teams. The focus of this role is to assess, coach and influence the business as we scale and evolve to enable our teams to accomplish amazing things. At Netflix, our culture shapes who we are and how we operate. We need someone who is just as passionate about the culture as they are about the work they are doing in the business. The Director will partner with several of our leaders based in EMEA  and also remain closely connected with the HR team.

The Ideal Candidate

We are looking for a French speaker as we want our HR team to be diverse in terms of language skills in order to represent our EMEA employee population.

Our ideal candidate will understand the business, culture and foster an appreciation of the creative process. Will be a shining example of what it means to be a stunning colleague - living our values, understanding how our culture comes to life, and possessing a deep knowledge of the business.  Will play a key role in the growth of our Marketing teams.

This role is unique in the sense that you’ll be responsible for driving decisions on organization design, compensation, employee development, and much more.  You’ll learn the business and culture inside and out so that you are able to provide strategic HR partnership to the Marketing business leaders to enhance the growth and impact of those teams to the business. In this role, leading, demonstrating, redefining and modeling the Netflix culture is top priority. 

The ideal candidate will be a dynamic and thoughtful leader with a collaborative and influential leadership style, the ability to inspire others into action and to think creatively about solutions. The right person for this role must have comfort with ambiguity, and able to make quick, well-informed decisions. They will embody our culture of Freedom and Responsibility through their behavior and interactions daily and be willing to invite, receive and promote constructive feedback. 

They will exude curiosity about our business and have a proven track record of rapid self-learning. They will value inclusion, diversity of opinions and people, and every member of the team, regardless of their title. They will be constantly aware of the trends and development in the international HR environment

The right person for this role must have a passion for the business and be driven to accomplish and meet objectives. This position is responsible for providing wise counsel (not HR best practices for HR sake) to the business and successfully influencing and supporting strategies to meet our business objectives. 


This position requires a solid progressive and senior human resources experience in the entertainment industry internationally, as an HR Business Partner/HR Director.

This person should have well-developed coaching, communication, and leadership skills and should provide an example of excellence to all that they interact with. Having successfully coached and influenced individual contributors and managers is a must for this position. Fluent in French is highly desired.

A background in organizational development and previous experience in L&D and I&D is also a plus.
