Netflix is one of the world's leading entertainment services with over 260 million paid memberships in over 190 countries enjoying TV series, films and games across a wide variety of genres and languages. Members can play, pause and resume watching as much as they want, anytime, anywhere, and can change their plans at any time.

In April 2022, we introduced a new, more affordable, ad-supported tier for our customers, marking a significant milestone for Netflix. Our focus is now on expanding choices for consumers and providing advertisers with a premium TV brand experience that surpasses traditional linear formats. The challenge ahead involves scaling our ad tech to maximize its impact on our business.

At Netflix, the Ads Data Science and Engineering team plays a crucial role in establishing the foundation of our ads business. Our mission encompasses conducting comprehensive analyses, developing analytic tools, and creating predictive models using machine learning, all with the overarching goal of enhancing choices and joy for our members. As a leader in this domain, you'll collaborate closely with partner teams to strategize on overarching business goals. Your team will be at the forefront of developing and implementing advanced optimization algorithms and machine learning models, driving significant enhancements to our advertising systems. With a commitment to analytical rigor, your team will evaluate ideas, dissect problems, build workflows, provide recommendations, and lead end-to-end analytics initiatives in this transformative space.
