Netflix is in the business of connecting storytellers with audiences. As a consumer product company, we constantly innovate to ensure members have the best viewing experience possible - regardless of device, platform, internet connection speed, or language. As a studio, we help storytellers realize their creative vision and deliver the best possible version of that story to a global audience.

Making all of this happen is no small feat. Our mission:

Help people "behind-the-scenes" create and promote Original content you know and love. We work with studio executives, financial analysts, producers, vfx artists, trailer editors, synopsis writers, translators and many, many more to supercharge their workflows to become the largest (and most innovative) studio in the world.

For creatives, by creatives, we aspire to help people focus on the things people do best such as build relationships with top talent, develop demogorgons, and cut gripping trailers. And, of course, do this on a global scale with local originals such as Terrace House in Japan and 3% in Brazil. We aim to bring clarity to large, complex problem spaces and are just as excited about designing applications as we are creating large-scale workflow diagrams.

About the Role

The Netflix Content Engineering Design team is seeking a UI Designer who has experience in contributing to a Design System. In this role, you will be responsible for creating UI components that are part of design-only libraries used by our Product Designers. You will partner with the overall Product Design team to shape the visual appearance of our Design System, engage with our UX Writer to document it, and align with UI Engineers for implementation.
