As Netflix continues to grow, we are looking for an Associate to join the Product Discovery and Promotion Finance, Strategy & Analysis (PDP FS&A) team supporting various areas across PDP.

If you’ve ever seen a Netflix billboard or a trailer, chosen a title on our service based on the artwork or the description, or watched a Netflix show with subtitles, you’ve experienced the work of Product Discovery and Promotion.
Netflix derives a significant competitive advantage from its highly analytical approach to managing all business aspects, which is equally applicable to PDP’s strategy and operations. Leadership relies heavily on FS&A as a key contributor to strategic development, creative and operational excellence, and informing important business decisions with actionable data-driven insights.
