Product Designer, Interactive Experiences

Netflix, Los Gatos, California

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

Duration: Full-Time


We are looking for a lead-level product designer to help Netflix continue to push the boundaries of interactive and new content-related product experiences. As part of the team that created Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, this role will work closely with a talented team of designers, product managers, engineers, content executives, and external partners to create the next generation of story experiences for millions of Netflix viewers around the world.

About You
You’re equally comfortable shaping narrative and game-like experiences as you are in defining complex UX patterns and frameworks to help our team expand the definition of “interactive" across Netflix. You balance a passion for storytelling, creating awe-inspiring and emotionally resonant user experiences, along with a strong desire to understand user behavior and success through data and consumer insights. When faced with constraints and ambiguity, you become more — not less — creative. You love this zone. You bring projects from concept to completion, doing everything possible to ensure their success. 

You’re smart, confident, highly competent—and humble enough not to have an ego. You’re a skilled communicator who welcomes honest, candid feedback, and your first instinct is to collaborate with others to challenge and make your ideas even better. You partner with a cross-functional team to oversee the experience from conception to launch (and then some).

Responsibilities

  • Initiate, define and lead innovation initiatives and projects from concept to completion
  • Collaborate with a team of designers (visual, interactive, motion), prototypers, and content producers to explore, test, and evolve interactive experiences on Netflix
  • Own the entire design process—from concept exploration, storyboards, wireframes and prototypes to detailed specs and polished visual design 
  • Develop and maintain positive relationships with Project Manager, Content, Engineering and Consumer Insights partners
  • Establish a strong interactive point-of-view and help cross-functional teams to understand the vision

Qualifications

  • 8+ years design on consumer-friendly interactive experiences 
  • Multiple successful product/digital launches that drove meaningful impact to the business
  • Content production experience in the development of linear and/or interactive narratives
  • A great portfolio that showcases deep human-centered design skills   
  • Ability to quickly produce an extensive range of visual and interactive concepts
  • The communication skills to clearly articulate your concepts—and evangelize on their behalf
  • Proven leadership and strategic ability to drive initiatives and projects with teams 
  • An appreciation of A/B testing and using data to inform design decisions
  • A love of movies, TV shows and interactive media

Why you’ll love it here:

  • Your work is experienced globally by 300M+ viewers (and growing) in 190 countries 
  • You are empowered to imagine what “interactive TV” means and create new delight for our members
  • You are surrounded by many talented people that you’re inspired by everyday   
  • On the spectrum from careful to reckless, we live right on the border of reckless (otherwise we’re not pushing boundaries)
  • You get control how you approach solving problems and what tools you use
