Key responsibilities
  • Recruiting - Your primary responsibility is recruiting a team that others envy
  • Development - Make that team even stronger
  • Direction - Your passion for product analytics and strong relationships within Netflix sets the context and direction for your team.

  • Well-balanced skills - People have trouble pinning you down. Both business and technical teams claim you as their own. You are equal parts technical and functional (and both are exceptionally strong), and you're equally comfortable and effective at presenting to technical or business leaders.
  • Analytics Expert - Deep knowledge of cloud analytical platform design (cloud storage technologies, cloud ETL technologies, visualization tools) and application of powerful analytical techniques to business problems. You can discuss current trends and techniques used by other companies in this space.

  • Charismatic - You are someone who can attract other high-performing individuals to work for you at Netflix.
