Netflix announced the creation of the first global Internet TV network three years ago and now operates in 190 countries. But our journey has just begun. Our marketing team is tasked with making people so passionate about our content that they signup and watch. As a part of this mission, we strive to engage with people all over the world through earned, owned, and paid media.
• Earned media - creating organic news cycles through publicity events, talent, etc.
• Owned media - publishing content through social media channels for fans
• Paid media - advertising through online (FB, YT), and offline channels (TV, OOH)
Our publicity team drives our efforts to increase and improve earned media. They create news cycles through publicity events, awards for our titles, and engaging with our creative talent to create newsworthy content.
We are forming a new team to specifically help our Publicity team with their technology and scaling needs - media outreach, event planning (premieres, screening events, press junkets), awards/nominations management, title launch calendaring, etc.
As the publicity and marketing teams in Los Angeles continue to grow, we are starting to build out engineering teams as well to help them build the technology that will enable them to manage publicity campaigns for lots of titles and the Netflix brand at large. You will be one of the founding engineers on this distributed team (Los Angeles, Los Gatos), so you’ll need a wide range of experience and the ability to operate autonomously and directly with partners. This position will require occasional travel between Los Gatos and Los Angeles.
