We are Netflix’s Editorial & Publishing (E&P) team. A team of storytellers, editors, producers, and 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 and publishing network that brings joy to our fans and members all around the world.
We want to make content for our content, which is as entertaining off Netflix as it is on Netflix. To create content that brings communities together over shared passions. Content that helps our fans discover new shows and movies and talent or fall more deeply in love with something they’ve already seen.
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. In this role, you’ll be looking at new ways to talk about our Fantasy franchises, and have a great skill for bringing these stories and narratives into the news cycle and social zeitgeist, primarily through editorial A/V content.
For this particular role, we’re looking for somebody who can fully own the publishing and programming strategy for everything related to our fantasy franchise genre. You will lead the publishing strategy that serves our current and future publishing channels (currently Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) as well as the programming strategy to entertain, inform and engage fantasy fans across the 450 million fans on our branded social platforms globally, as well as finding ways to broaden out the fanbase.
You’ll have a deep passion, appreciation, and understanding of the fantasy genre and entertainment broadly, with a depth and breadth of knowledge about local and global content. You are comfortable operating within the traditions of the entertainment industry, but keen to push its boundaries and willing to take risks where others won’t. You’ll be trusted to have your finger on the pulse of consumer behaviour and to find ways to innovate in this field. As a fantasy fan, you are attuned to what sparks a connection between IP and its fandom and understand what captures people’s attention and drives fandom and influence. You live for that spark.
We’re looking for a creative and strategic thought leader with a strong voice, impeccable taste, and authentic love for fantasy, entertainment and internet/pop-culture. Someone who’s willing to be hands-on and manage creators themselves out of pure passion for the craft, yet also able to mentor a team of writers and producers to produce online content that fans will love.
