Returnship - Technical Recruiting Researcher

  • Los Gatos, California
  • Returnship
The Path Forward Return to Work program at Netflix is a 16-week paid returnship for experienced professionals returning to the workforce after taking time off for caregiving. The program is open to women and men who have at least 5 years of professional experience and have been out of the paid workforce for at least two years to focus on caring for a child or other dependent. If you meet these criteria, we welcome you to apply. 

Growing our teams to meet the demands of our expanding business is critical to Netflix’s success. The Talent Acquisition (TA) team plays a key role to our engineering business partners, as they continue to seek world-class professionals for each and every open position. Netflix is looking for a Technical Researcher to partner with TA team members and Hiring Managers in support of hiring needs within our Engineering organizations.  
What Sets Us Apart  
One of the most amazing things about working at Netflix is that no one is going to tell you exactly how to do your job, but instead there is space to bring in your own creativity and innovation. In this role you will be in charge of developing and owning the sourcing strategies for identifying the best talent for the engineering teams you support. You will become an expert in  different business and industry landscapes which will empower you to creative ideas on how to progress your searches. You will know when there is a need to pivot the search and you will proactively communicate the progress of the search to both the Talent partners and the Hiring Managers you work with. 
You will also be responsible for evaluating active and passive candidates to assess which teams would be most appropriate based on their technical skills and assess how well they would thrive in the Netflix culture
