Director, Global Production and Economic Development Policy
NetflixLos Angeles, CA
Full Time Job
Netflix, the world's leading Internet-television network, is seeking an experienced policy expert to help the Company develop and optimize effective and efficient tax and production incentive policy for a growing global portfolio of film and TV productions. The position will be based in Los Angeles and report to the Head of Public Policy.
The ideal candidate will have experience assessing, designing, advocating and implementing tax and incentive programs globally. Experience within several of the following is a plus: the United States, Canada, Europe, Brazil, Mexico, Korea and India. This person will also actively participate in developing and managing the Company's government relations and public policy efforts relating to tax policy issues more broadly, including direct and indirect taxes as well as local subsidy systems and cultural support obligations.
The candidate will work closely with the Company's finance and production teams. Success in this role will require exercising leadership in a high-performance business culture, liaising with different parts of our organisation; therefore, comparable experience and success in a market-leading firm is highly desirable.
Willingness to reconceptualize and challenge prevailing wisdom with respect to incentives and tax policy will be a must. Netflix seeks to support its creators and to further the creative ecosystem. Focus on long-term sustainability and creative vision will be paramount and this position will need to support those goals over individual production optimization.
The Netflix legal and public policy team is a highly talented and experienced group of lawyers and public policy experts who work in close partnership with their business counterparts to advance the strategic goals of the company. The team is perceived within the company as solutions-oriented and as a welcome part of the Netflix business team.
