As part of the Studio XD Design Team you will use the power of design to help the world’s largest studio source, manage, produce, and deliver incredible content to members all around the world.
About the Studio XD team
We are the newest and fastest-growing design team at Netflix.
We design the technologies that power how Netflix sources and produces all our content. We are scrappy and entrepreneurial. Each of us has a broad set of Product Design skills ranging from product thinking to interaction design, user research to visual communication. We work in close collaboration with Product, Engineering, and Consumer Insights partners to build groundbreaking innovations for the people inside and outside of our Studio.
The organization is flat, process is minimal, individual responsibility is big, and there is an emphasis on keeping non-productive influences out of the everyday decision process.
About the role
Here on the Studio Media team, we focus on the humans involved in taking raw footage from the set, iterating on it, and getting ready for all of us to enjoy on screen. That process involves many workflows, a globally distributed team, and tons of media being exchanged, transformed, tracked, and managed. This space is ripe for innovation, and as the world’s largest studio, this presents some exciting challenges, as well as huge potential for impact on both Netflix and the industry at large. 

As a Product Designer on our team, you will collaborate closely with product managers, researchers, data scientists, engineers, and studio partners to take on complex workflows, involving a wide array of users and various online and offline touchpoints. You’ll leverage your HCI, Design Thinking, and Service Design toolkit to find innovative ways to help our productions streamline their work and unlock their creative capabilities.
