Employment Information

Data Scientist (L5) - Promotional Media - EMEA

Our mission at Netflix is to connect global stories with global audiences. When a Netflix member opens our app, we have a few precious moments to help them choose a story that is right for them at that instance. Presenting them evidence – Artwork, Trailers, Synopses – that authentically represents each title and resonates with the member is essential to this effort.

Getting this evidence just right for each title is a tall order but our creative strategists, art designers, and video editors are masters of this. Perhaps a more unique aspect of Netflix is that these teams leverage data to inform their decision-making. This is made possible because Netflix UI is a thriving learning machine, personalized via reinforcement learning.
