Netflix, the world’s leading Internet-television network, is seeking an individual to join its growing global Public Policy team, and more specifically the Strategic Engagement and Analytics (SEAL) team.  Much of the work that SEAL does is forward-looking and proactive in nature and we are seeking a data analyst to ensure that our Public Policy positions are supported by evidence and data. The role would ideally be based in LA and would include working with teams all over the world. The successful candidate will have responsibility for gathering data internally and externally and providing relevant analysis within the context of public policy work.

  • Track research and reports from third party sources relevant to the work of the Public Policy team.
  • Commission and support research projects from third parties to drive our global and regional policy strategy.

About you:

  • 5-7 years experience and background in policy and economics, statistics or computer science.
