Netflix is the world's leading streaming entertainment service.

We don’t need to tell you that Netflix is everywhere. Perhaps you’re watching Netflix right now, or have in the not too distant past. What you might not know is just how much goes into building the world’s leading Internet TV network, and the technical innovation behind our storytelling. At the intersection of award-winning entertainment and cutting edge tech, our product and engineering teams are building out Animation Studio Technology that will allow us to produce some of the best animated content in the world. We will be building the next generation of tools and products that will enable scale and flexibility, and attract the top creative animation talent to Netflix. At the center of this incredible initiative is the Product Talent Acquisition team.

As a Talent Acquisition Manager, you will develop, drive, and inspire a high performing team of Recruiters and Recruiting Researchers, partnering closely with the business to hire top technical talent for our Animation Studio Technology organization. The Animation Studio Technology team builds products that power the Netflix Animation Studio ecosystem; tools that empower animators, directors, editors, CG supervisors, and artists in the creative development process. Netflix is on a path to release six animated feature films per year, which no major studio has ever done, on top of a healthy slate of animated series. This role is pivotal in our success to becoming a leader in animated content.
