About the Growth & Customer Health Teams
In this role, you’ll manage two high-functioning Content Design teams.

About Managing at Netflix
Netflix has more than 180 million global subscribers, but in many ways we still function like a startup. The organization is flat, process is minimal and individual responsibility is big. Managers focus on sharing information to stimulate collaboration, hiring and developing teams rich in diverse perspectives, taking educated risks and incorporating data to formulate quality testable hypotheses.
You have experience building effective Content Design teams and set a high bar for execution, communication, and responsibility. As a leader, you measure success in terms of both human and business impact. You foster excellence through collaboration and encourage an inclusive, open environment that makes space for diverse views and workstyles. You’re an excellent advocate, evangelist and listener who seeks and offers candid, constructive feedback.
You know how to think critically about product flows and drive innovation ideas forward. You work cross-functionally with multiple teams and educate partners about the unique value Content Design brings. You strive to simplify complex problems, and support your ideas with data to get everyone on the same page.
