Does this sound interesting? Or does this sound interesting but intimidating? Please don’t self-select out, let’s figure it out together. We’d love to talk to you!
Netflix is a global company with a diverse member base, which is why the content we produce reflects that: global perspectives and global stories. As we grow globally, we must have the most talented employees with diverse backgrounds, cultures, perspectives, and experiences to support our innovation and creativity. We are an equal-opportunity employer and strive to build balanced teams from all walks of life.
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. The overall market range for roles in this area of Netflix is typically  $300,000 – $900,000. This market range is based on total compensation (vs. only base salary), which is in line with our compensation philosophy.
