It’s the chance to be on the ground floor with a team that will handle original movies globally for the online leader, changing the perception of Netflix films and how they should be enjoyed and celebrated.  It’s a chance to be fearless and unconventional, try new things, lean into the unknown and turn a movie marketing campaign on its head.  It’s an opportunity where you actually get to experience the direct impact your work has on the business.

The Role
The Manager of GCM Original Films will work across several different disciplines that are bringing original films to fruition here at Netflix. We are looking for a a team member who is able to formulate and drive creative and executable ideas, communicate priorities, and present clear goals to stakeholders. The ideal candidate is not just a movie marketer, but a Netflix marketer, representing and understanding our brand. They must have a solid business acumen and a strong work ethic. This leader will understand the film market, be intellectually curious about entertainment and technology, and relate that knowledge to their campaigns. They think strategically, take the bull by the horns and will run with campaigns or new ideas that haven’t yet been achieved or previously attempted (and have fun with it). As such, they are a bold risk taker, not afraid to challenge prevailing assumptions when warranted, and suggest better approaches. They are candid and direct, even when that approach might be controversial.  The ideal candidate thrives in an environment of freedom, takes initiative, and uses sound judgement to independently make wise decisions. They are scrappy, unafraid to jump in and handle tasks at all levels -- ALL -- and they succeed in an environment void of bureaucracy and layers. The role will report to the Director, GCM Original Films.
