Netflix is the leading provider of streaming video, reaching over 209 million subscribers in more than 190 countries and territories around the world.
We entertain the world on a massive scale. For example, our subscribers spend five billion hours a quarter watching our shows and account for a third of the downstream Internet traffic. All this global entertainment is powered by a $15+ billion content budget that encompasses an extraordinarily diverse set of shows.
At the heart of the scaled work is the Studio XD team. We’re building a suite of products that help scale the Studio’s operations.
From choosing the best stories to produce, and taking a title to life, to building the world’s deepest catalog of information about films, series, games, and more. As part of the Studio XD design team, you will be designing products that power the future of the studio from pitch to play.
About the team
Although Netflix is an established company, in many ways we still act like a startup. The organization is flat, the process is minimal, individual responsibility is big, and there is an emphasis on keeping non-productive influences out of the everyday decision process. We endeavor to stay nimble and make decisions quickly.
