 More about Netflix


This is a great time to be at Netflix!  The organization is flat, process is minimal, and there’s an emphasis on keeping non-productive influences out.  Every day, we make decisions with far-reaching technical and product impact as we build this new business and delight our members with a whole new way of enjoying movies and TV.


We recently updated our culture doc that describes how we work; it’s worth a read to find out how we manage via context rather than control.
