Netflix is the world's leading internet entertainment service with 149 million memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. We work to provide the best of entertainment, whenever and wherever our members want it. That means aggressive growth of our content library, and constant innovation of the Netflix experience itself, which we call “product.”

The Director of Product Innovation - Originals Launch Strategy - Series is a senior cross-functional leader who bridges digital product management and creative strategies to drive toward tomorrow’s Netflix. You will sit at the intersection of product, content, and marketing strategies, identifying long-term opportunities and challenges while shepherding shorter-term projects that delight our members through experiencing our Original content on over 1600 different devices across the world. You will think big picture about our business goals and how we achieve them through change and experimentation. You will use strong analytical sense to evaluate ideas and dissect problems. You will build confidence across disciplines, speak multiple professional languages, and translate needs into opportunities. That means thinking strategically about audience and business needs, understanding product mechanics, shepherding compelling packaging and presentation of originals, tracking metrics and dissecting performance, and championing product improvements.   As a product leader, you must demonstrate a strategic approach to what matters to the business, an ability to lead through influence, and a talent for prioritizing quickly in ambiguity.  You will play a crucial role in the launch of our highest-profile TV series, and must be comfortable in high-profile, high-pressure situations.
