Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies


Overview
In the role of Visual UI Designer, you will apply your passion for designing and illustrating gorgeous interfaces and production assets to help us define new interactive content experiences on Netflix. You will work closely with a talented team of designers, internal producers, and external content producers to create visually stunning and content-specific interfaces for millions of Netflix customers around the world.

Our ideal candidate will be equally comfortable creating blue sky concepts as well as pixel-perfect design and specs. You must balance a passion for storytelling, gaming, and creating emotionally resonant designs with a desire to understand user behavior and success through data and consumer insights. You are able to collaborate with content creators and help them understand good user experience and interface design, as well as present the opportunities and limitations of our unique interfaces and canvases. You are able to provide clear, candid feedback about designs to internal and external teams, and care immensely about both the visual details and usability. Above all, you have deep expertise designing visually rich and stylistically diverse interfaces across a range of mediums (video, games, apps) and platforms (TV, mobile, web) for a diverse audience.

On the heels of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, now is an especially exciting time to join our design team as we evolve the future of entertainment yet again. If you’re ready to add your vision—to imagine an alternate future—this is a rare opportunity. The things you discover and create will have widespread impact within Netflix and around the world for our 140M members.
