Content Design Manager
About the Content Design Team
Content Designers partner with Product Designers, Product Managers, Globalization specialists and others to create Netflix’s product experiences. They develop testable, strategic copy that helps members easily navigate through the service and find shows and movies they’ll love.
About Our Streaming Teams
In this role, you’ll manage senior Content Designers working in several different areas of our streaming service, including TV, Mobile, Kids, and Personalization. Content Designers help concept and create new product features, testing ideas and approaches to language that inform, guide, and at times delight members while driving business value.
About Managing at Netflix
Netflix has more than 200 million global subscribers, but in many ways we still function like a startup. The organization is flat, process is minimal, and individual responsibility is big. Managers focus on sharing information to stimulate collaboration, hiring and developing teams rich in diverse perspectives, taking educated risks, and incorporating data to formulate quality testable hypotheses.
You have experience building diverse teams and set a high bar for execution, communication, and responsibility. As a leader, you measure success in terms of both human and business impact. You foster excellence through collaboration and encourage an inclusive, open environment that makes space for different views and work styles. You’re an excellent advocate, evangelist, and listener who seeks and offers candid, constructive feedback.
You know how to think critically about product flows and drive innovation ideas forward. You work cross-functionally with multiple teams and educate partners about the unique value of Content Design. You strive to simplify complex problems, and support your ideas with data to get everyone on the same page.
