Remote Job Description

We're looking for a talented Senior Researcher with strong quantitative research experience to join the Consumer Insights Brand & Emerging Experiences team.

Work with various cross-functional partners to inform and participate in brand strategy development.
  • Deliver consultative thought leadership: Ability to build strong partnerships with key internal stakeholders and offer a strategic point of view on product, content, and marketing efforts and the potential of the Netflix brand. 
  • Compelling communication & storytelling: Integrate insights from across several different cohorts, inducing consumers, key opinion formers (press, governments, etc.), industry, etc., and from other internal trackers in the crafting of thought leadership to teams across the company. Leverage many data types, qualitative and quantitative, 3rd party, etc., to tell cohesive stories about how Netflix can strengthen relationships with key constituencies. 
  • Strong cross-functional collaboration and partnership: Work closely with cross-functional partners, including Product, Design, Data Science, Content, Marketing, Comms, and Brand to proactively develop research initiatives and other Consumer Insights and Analytics teams (e.g., Product Experience CI, Series CI, Films CI, Regional CI, Consumer Analytics, and Customer Service) to leverage various data types and connect the dots with other key business metrics for the company. Operates with a bias toward action to proactively collaborate with multiple teams across the company.
