  • Craft clear communication of progress toward goals, reporting status to stakeholders and leadership.

Requirements

  • 10+ years of technical program management experience
  • Deep understanding and point of view on product growth and discovery solutions
  • Direct experience in the games industry is beneficial (TPM, Product, Development, etc.)
  • Highly skilled, experienced, and enjoys orchestrating multi-organizational impacting software programs with many moving parts
  • Proven experience creating partnerships with cross-functional teams, driving large-scale technical strategies, debating technical approaches, and building long-term scalable solutions
  • Able to identify gaps in solutions and weigh in on product vs. technology tradeoffs
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including the ability to clearly articulate business impact and technical constraints tailored to the audience

At Netflix, we carefully consider a wide range of compensation factors to determine your personal top of market. We rely on market indicators to determine compensation and consider your specific job, skills, and experience to get it right. These considerations can cause your compensation to vary and will also be dependent on your location.

This market range is based on total compensation (vs. only base salary), which is in line with our compensation philosophy.
