It's an amazing time to be joining the Netflix team as we continue to transform entertainment. We have moved from being a distributor to a programmer; from being a tech company to a serious player in the entertainment landscape; from a domestic outfit to a company with global presence and from a brand that markets price value to one that talks about the joy of watching. That's where you come in.
