DescriptionNetflix is the world's leading internet entertainment service with over 208 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. Members can watch as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, on any internet-connected screen. Members can play, pause and resume watching, all without commercials or commitments.
At the center of every single title that launches on the service is a huge effort across multiple teams to curate and deliver the best representation of that title from the artwork to the synopsis.
Netflix is on a path to release six original animated feature films per year, which no major studio has ever done, on top of its very healthy slate of original animated series for both children and adults. Going toe-to-toe with the likes of Pixar and Disney will be no small feat — fearlessness while tackling ambiguity and a methodical approach to problem solving will be key to your success.
The Studio XD team builds a suite of tools to scale the operations behind taking a title live, while building the world’s deepest catalog of information about TV shows and movies. As part of the Animation XD Team, you will be designing the future of our tools to streamline the pipeline and enhance the creative capabilities of Netflix Animation Studios, leveraging your HCI, Design Thinking and prototyping toolkit.
