Netflix is looking for an outstanding visual designer to join our
small but amazing team. If you are as passionate about designing
great experiences as you are about helping a successful business
reach even higher heights, then we would love to talk to you. We are
a close-knit team, so our ideal candidate is an excellent
collaborator and team player who values complete honesty and candor.
Although we are an established company, we still act like a start up
in many ways. We offer an opportunity to innovate on a large scale,
and our compensation, benefits, and culture are hard to beat.

About You:
You have exceptional visual design skills and impeccable sensibility
for color, composition, form and story. You can design in a range of
styles and have a gifted eye for detail. Your visual sensibility
allows you to strike the perfect balance between form and function.
Your aesthetic is guided by restraint and simplicity.

You don’t have a “thin skin” because you know that any feedback you
get is given with the intent of making you and your designs even
better. You’re smart and competent, but you don’t have an ego. You
understand that communicating has as much to do with listening as it
does with talking. You can articulate the value of your design to
Marketing, Product Management, Engineering and your grandmother as
well as you can talk about font size and whitespace to other
designers. You will be expected to produce quality quickly and be
able to take your designs through multiple iterations on an ongoing
basis. You have also read the 7 great reasons to work at Netflix and
you understand and embody the characteristics listed in reason #6.

You have a user-centric approach to design and you understand the
value of being in a data driven environment where extensive testing
guides us in improving the experience for our customers – expect to
engage in an ongoing healthy debate about data vs. design. We hire
senior people who are expected to “think” AND “do” and as a result,
this is a very hands-on, roll your sleeves up and get dirty kind of

…and of course, you must love movies.

The required bulleted list of attributes follows:

• 5+ years of interactive design (TV interface experience is a plus)

• A great portfolio
• Experience across the entire product lifecycle (lived through
multiple launches)
• Expert abilities with the Adobe Creative Suite and Flash
(ActionScript experience is a plus)
• Ability to rapidly produce visual concepts
• BA/BS in fine arts, graphic arts, human factors or related field
