Netflix is the world’s leading streaming entertainment service with over 204 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying series, documentaries and feature films across a wide variety of genres and languages. As our slate of original productions and licensed content increases, we must scale and formalize management of studio data to meet the changing needs of the business. Now is an exciting time to join a talented, energetic team that is helping to shape operational data standards and practices for a growing studio.
We are looking for a Studio Data Specialist to join the Studio Data Management team within Studio Product Innovation (SPI). SPI creates applications that drive innovation in content creation. Our team manages several large operational data sets that are used broadly across these applications. We work closely with product teams to ensure that the data is bringing value to their products while also working to improve underlying data quality through better processes, tools, guidelines and user education.
In this role, you will focus on the Movie and Production IDs, which are the backbone of the application ecosystem. Maintaining properly structured and connected Movie and Production IDs is critical to driving a variety of functions, from financial forecasting to project launch on service. You will initially focus on data quality projects in the Content Programming domain, where product teams create solutions to help studio teams make decisions about what titles to acquire and how to allocate Netflix’s content budget. Additionally, you will join other Data Specialists in providing Movie-related support to users across the studio. Key partners outside our team include product managers, engineers, designers, application users as well as training and customer support teams. A successful candidate will love digging into large data sets to find patterns and diagnose problems, have the agility to pivot between heads-down project execution and user-focused problem-solving and be excited by the opportunity to be part of an evolving team.
