Product Manager, Studio Technology (User Onboarding)

Netflix, Los Gatos, California

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

There’s no better time to become a part of Netflix.  We are revolutionizing the way content is created and delivered to millions of users all across the globe. As Netflix continues its shift toward producing original content, we are exploring ways to make content production more efficient. We want to empower the studio and production landscape, utilizing never-before-seen streamlined, cutting-edge software technologies.  

The Studio Product team builds a suite of tools to scale the operations behind taking a Netflix show from concept to streaming. We are looking for a product manager to lead a large scale initiative to streamline the onboarding experience for the people and vendors that help produce our content.  We want to improve every aspect of the onboarding experience, including the administrative tasks required to start and stop work, the initial experience in the Netflix technology ecosystem, and the online workflow that manages the user journey. 

In this role you will:

  • Own your product from conception to delivery and be expected to take bold risks rather than settling for incremental improvement.  
  • Work as part of an autonomous agile team along with experienced designers and engineers to deliver outstanding products to both internal and external customers.
  • Author strategy documents (memos) and presentations, and represent your team’s work to senior executives and studio business leaders.
  • Collaborate with the extended Product Management team to deliver common features and connected data across our studio technologies.
  • Work with business stakeholders and experience design partners to deeply understand and socialize the evolving needs of our studio, partners, and people who work on our Netflix shows.

We offer:

  • The opportunity to have impact. The Netflix product management model is different from most technology companies. Our key product management leaders - including this position - work with multiple sprint teams but do not have direct reports. Consequently, we’re looking for experienced product leaders who are strategic and also like rolling up their sleeves.
  • Responsibility. Netflix offers true transparency and autonomy. Our culture is unique and is key to how we innovate.
  • Learning. You will be creating customer experiences and business models that have never been done before. You will have the opportunity to work with stunning colleagues who value collaboration and from whom you can learn.
  • A work environment where you can grow your career. Many of our top execs started out as individual contributors.

Here is what we are looking for:

  • 7-10+ years of experience as a product manager working across a mix of consumer, enterprise, and internal tools;
  • A strong, product leader  who is comfortable navigating ambiguity, working in uncharted waters  and persists in unlocking complex business areas
  • Technical fluency, including an ability to clearly describe tradeoffs between users, studio leaders, designers and engineering partners
  • A master of organization and prioritization who has the ability to triage multiple initiatives with a strong ability to  focus team efforts on tackling the right problems at the right time
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including an affinity for socializing product complexity with ease to a variety of audiences
  • You can build consensus and alignment but are not afraid to push ahead when there remain some critics.
  • Experience with entertainment content production or distribution is preferred.
