Director Marketing - Middle East, Turkey and Africa

Netflix, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Leading subscription service for watching TV episodes and movies

Netflix is hiring a Director to manage the marketing team for the Middle East, Turkey and Africa.  This is a senior, strategic and creative position with a remit to impact the trajectory of our business in the region.
The Director will lead a team of Netflix employees and agency partners, running local, pan-regional and global title and brand campaigns and will need to inspire a highly-skilled team of social and marketing experts. It will require partnership and collaboration with the PR, Publicity, Brand & Editorial, Content and product teams, and reports to the VP of Marketing, EMEA.
Representing some large and very different Netflix markets, this person will need a strategic mindset and good business sense to focus the team and make the brand burn brightly, while also reaching new tranches of consumers across a range of tastes and demographics. The right leader will continue to grow the business and fandom, spot new areas for experimentation, and increase positive word of mouth in a rapidly changing entertainment and social landscape.
We’re looking to build title brands and create cultural phenomena with a local flavour to grow the business, so we need a marketing director who has extraordinary creative taste and a strong instinct for stories that will get consumers talking.
The Netflix culture rewards daredevils who exhibit good judgment, innovation, selflessness, courage, impact, candid communication, passion and curiosity.
