Over the past year, Netflix has been growing globally launching over 30 international originals in 2018, almost 100 total since 2017. With Netflix pivoting to become a local producer of content across the world, & 74 of our roughly 130 million members living outside the United States, our marketing efforts are also hitting international strides. We're looking for a veteran clearance & music rights manager to support Netflix's Marketing & PR teams based in the EMEA & APAC regions. Although this role will report into the Marketing Legal Group in Los Angeles, it will also be part of the larger Music Group at Netflix.
Our Marketing & PR campaigns are a key part of Netflix's ongoing success, & music is core to those campaigns. Working closely with the company's stakeholders in the Marketing & PR organizations & Music Group, the successful candidate will be comfortable advising on a wide range of music clearance matters, keeping in mind the strategic goals of the company & understanding the broader legal implications of taking one action over another. In addition they love everything music. They spend their free time going to venues, searching the Internet for the next great artist, & studying musicology. They know everyone in the industry - the record labels, publishers, artists, managers, agents, studios, networks, agencies, marketing teams, producers, post producers, editors, & directors. They think having several different licenses (synch, master, mechanical, etc.) for the same work makes complete sense & doesn't think twice about a 7-way split ownership for a side of a song. They understand copyright as it pertains to music & has worked in projects across a variety of countries in the UK, Europe, the Middle East & Africa.
The successful candidate will be someone who loves working in an environment where freedom & responsibility are tenets, & passion, innovation & curiosity are mandates. They will have incredible soft skills to compliment their diligent work ethic. They seek an environment that places thoughtful efficiency over process yet they know how to work with organizations or institutions that may not hold the same beliefs. This memo
outlines how they always thought a company should be run.
