Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

The Globalization team is responsible for the translation and cultural adaptation of most things Netflix creates, from beautiful user interfaces to cinematic original programming. 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 Engagement team manages the vendors who perform all translation-related work. We measure the output quality of those vendors and manage vendor performance in order to assess the operational performance of all Globalization. We are looking for a seasoned Business Operations Manager to drive our operational performance and impact as we scale. Working with other localization leaders, Science & Algorithm, Technology Planning & Analysis and Engineering, you will develop the data and infrastructure to translate business requirements into operational excellence. 

As Business Operations Manager, you will use data to synthesize complex issues into a clear story, assessing business opportunities, risks and standards as they relate to continuous improvement of globalization. You will use your analytical capabilities to create metrics and performance models to drive and inform Globalization operational strategy. You will create Globalization- and Netflix-ready dashboards to review, measure, and manage the business.
