Director, Maturity Ratings
Netflix is releasing content at a pace and scale unlike any studio or broadcast channel in history: All around the world, at the same time, all episodes at once, for over 130 million members. With so many different titles to choose, across such a range of tastes and cultural standards, our members need the information and context to be able to tell at glance that what they’re watching is appropriate for their household.
In this role, the right candidate will have the opportunity to develop and craft a global system for accurately classifying and rating Netflix’s rapidly growing catalog of original content. It will require deep-level movie and TV expertise, knowledge of content policies and cultural sensitivities all over the world, operational aptitude to enforce those policies, and skill for creating great Internet products.
Based in the Product team, your goals will include improving the ease of use, transparency, and scalability of maturity advisories for all customers, with an eye toward those with children in the household. As we are a subscriber service, responsibility to our users is paramount; although traditional Standards & Practices work is relevant, ours is a different focus than most broadcast networks.
This is a highly cross-functional role. Within the Editorial Creative team, you will align with our in-house tagging and classification teams and the technology they use, working to evolve our internal systems, tools, and processes for scale, efficiency, and accuracy. In the broader Product organization, you will partner with Design, Consumer Insights, Globalization, and Engineering to execute on our maturity ratings strategy. Further, you will collaborate with Public Policy and PR to evangelize the broader story of Netflix global ratings, and serve as a trusted consultant to Content on new movies and shows.
