UI Motion Designer, Interactive Experiences
NetflixLos Gatos, CA
Full Time Job
On the heels of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, we are looking for an experienced UI Motion Designer to help Netflix push the boundaries of interactive content and product experiences. This role will work closely with a talented team of designers, product managers, and engineers to create the next generation user interfaces for millions of Netflix viewers around the world.
You're equally comfortable editing together narrative concepts as you are exploring complex motion and visual FX in user interfaces. Help our team expand the definition of ''interactive'' across Netflix. You balance a passion for storytelling and creating gorgeous and emotionally resonant user experiences with a strong desire for understanding user behavior through data and consumer insights. When faced with limits and ambiguity, you become more-not less-creative. You love this zone. You bring projects from concept to completion, doing everything possible to ensure their success.
You're smart, confident, highly competent-and humble enough not to have an ego. You're a skilled communicator who welcomes honest, candid feedback, and your first instinct is to collaborate with others to challenge you and make your ideas even better. You love to tinker and explore ideas because that's just what you love to do, not because someone has assigned you a project. This proactivity and curiosity to solve problems and find unique solutions has always set you apart from your peers and co-workers.
• Collaborate with a team of UX/UI designers, prototypers, and producers to explore and evolve interactive content formats via video and UI motion.
• Initiate, define and lead R&D and innovation initiatives pertaining to UI design, UI motion, and UI VFX.

• Partner with engineers to ensure UI motion looks fantastic across all platforms.
• Develop and maintain positive relationships with Design, Product Management, Creative Studio, Engineering and Consumer Insights partners.

• Proven track record of delivering creative solutions and shipping gorgeous experiences.
