About the Opportunity

Talent Acquisition continues to be a massive priority at Netflix, and we operate in a progressive hiring environment in which hiring the best — versus “making the hire” — guides everything we do. In order to thrive, Recruiters need to have an expert understanding of the roles which they hire, as well as the teams and businesses with which they partner. A great Recruiter is able to define what “the best” looks like for a given role and talent market; find stellar talent, and constantly drive on the business at every stage of the hiring process in order to ensure amazing hires.
