THE OPPORTUNITY AND OUR EXPECTATIONS
With millions of subscribers enjoying great content in over 190 countries, Netflix is shaping the future of entertainment with one simple goal: to entertain the world. Among these countries, Brazil is firmly established as a key-market for Netflix, where we are determined to increase our offer of great content and bring joy to more and more members. It's an incredibly exciting time to work at Netflix.
We are searching for a Counsel to join our business and legal affairs team (BALA) based in Alphaville (Barueri, State of São Paulo) to work remotely until returning to work at the office is deemed safe.

Ultimately, we want to build strong bonds between people and Netflix's content and we believe that a highly effective, aligned and passionate business and legal affairs (BALA) team is essential to that.
