The Company and Product Strategy:
Instant, high quality streaming on a vast array of devices is a core part of Netflix's strategy for the future. We partner with device manufacturers and service providers to make this happen.
Our first partner product to support instant streaming to TVs was launched in May 2008 -- almost 10 years later, the Netflix application is available on well over one hundred million individual devices worldwide. Our partnerships include global television makers, like Google, Apple, Samsung, Sony, and LG, as well as many of the world's largest operators, like Comcast, Virgin Media, and Orange. The Netflix Ready Device Platform makes this possible.
In order to help our partners add the Netflix streaming service to their devices, we work very closely with their engineering teams around the world to quickly integrate our application and monitor the quality of the result. A major differentiator for Netflix is that we provide test content and toolsets that assist our partners with the integration our application as well as help them to assess the quality of their efforts. Building, scaling, and supporting these externally facing systems is the charter of this team and the focus of this role.
In this role you will work cross functionally with engineering, product, design, certification and lab teams to manage all the operational aspects related to packaging, distributing, maintaining all our automation tools, globally at hundred of partners. You will be responsible for building and managing relationships with external vendors and distribution partners that supply the hardware and planning how we roll it out. This role will require a high degree of coordination and planning in order to provide a seamless experience to our device integration partners.
