We are Netflix's Editorial team
. A team of storytellers, editors, producers & writers, all of us huge fans of entertainment. We're creating a whole new approach to talking about entertainment. Our mission is to build the most influential entertainment media & publishing outlet that brings joy to fans in Japan & all around the world.
We want to make content for our content that is as entertaining off Netflix as it is on Netflix. To make content that brings communities together over shared passions. Content that helps our fans discover new shows & movies & talent or fall more deeply in love with something they've already seen.
Today we have 250 million fans on our social platforms globally, 150 thousand new global followers daily, & 10 billion global impressions per quarter. For context, that's twice the population of Japan in fans, twice the size of a stadium in new daily followers, & more than twice the number of pages on the internet in impressions each quarter. But we're just getting started.
Though part of the larger marketing organization, our team's work is unique in that we express a perspective on content the way an editorial media outlet would. You'll be looking at new ways to talk about our shows & films, both from Japan & Netflix originals from around the world, & have a great skill for bringing these stories & narratives into the news cycle & social zeitgeist through editorial A/V content.
This is a management position. The director will lead & mentor a team of Netflix employees & will need to inspire our highly skilled group of editorial & publishing experts to perform their best. We're seeking someone with high emotional intelligence, who can navigate the intersection of Netflix & Japanese business cultures. The right leader will guide the team as they bring the joy of the service into fans' newsfeeds, drive news, help members discover new shows, engage with talent, & build the brand reputation.
The successful candidate will be curious & business savvy, to set the right strategy for the team, & ensure editorial strategies impact the business goals in one of our most important growth markets. We'll expect that our audience channels enjoy healthy growth to scale & engage, are attractive to talent & their representatives, are credible with audiences, & set the pace for the rest of the industry.
The position requires strong partnership & collaboration with other Japan & global leaders in marketing & comms, content, biz dev, & product.
Netflix is an entrepreneurial environment. We'll look for someone that can set a vision, & respond to cultural & consumer trends, as well as shifts in our local business needs. The leader will be comfortable using data to make informed judgments. They will be responsible for developing new audiences, no matter where they spend their time.
It's also a highly creative role. The Director will work closely with the team & our external agencies & partners to make a broad set of Netflix original titles as relevant as possible in Japan. The E&P director will also need to have the hard skills of brand building & editorial excellence, including creative taste & a strong instinct for stories that will get consumers talking.
Finally, we're looking for a fan. You've loved movies, TV, & anime your whole life, & would feel lucky to make a career in the field you love so much. You are a culture vulture who leads the entertainment conversation with friends & family & can't wait for the next great movie, season, or episode.
The Director will have 10 years' experience with some combination of consumer brand, media, entertainment, editorial, & content creation & several years of experience managing teams.
That's a lot! If this all sounds like your cup of tea, the Netflix culture attracts daredevils who exhibit good judgment, innovation, selflessness, courage, impact, candid communication, passion, & curiosity. Read the Culture Deck
