Netflix is looking for specialists to join its new regional office in Warsaw
In late March 2022, the video streaming provider Netflix announced its plans to open a new office for the CEE region in Warsaw, Poland. It will be responsible for scaling the company’s services in the Central and Eastern Europe markets, in particular Poland, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Hungary, and Romania.
Now Netflix is hiring. The company is looking for specialists with good knowledge of local languages to complete the team of the new regional office in Warsaw.
“We plan to open a Netflix CEE office in Warsaw later this year that will function as a hub for the region. The Netflix office in Warsaw is a natural next step for us and will help build long-term cooperation in the region as well as deepen existing ties, creating new opportunities for content creators and producers. The creativity and potential of the local industry make Warsaw a great place to base our business across Central and Eastern Europe,”the Netflix Jobs web page says.
Currently, the job opening are the following:
- Marketing Production Manager with knowledge of Polish;
- Social Marketing Manager with written and oral communication skills in English and in at least one CEE Language (Polish, Czech, Romanian, Hungarian, Ukrainian);
- Marketing Manager with written and oral communication skills in English and fluency in any of the languages (Romanian, Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Ukrainian).
You can find all vacancies here.
Netflix localized its service in Poland in 2016. Soon after that its streaming became available in Romanian, Czech, Hungarian, and Croatian. In 2021 the service was also localized in Ukrainian. Throughout this time, CEE has become a strategic production hub for Netflix’s international shows, with major titles like Extraction 2 or Shadow & Bone S01 successfully shot in the region recently.
Why is it interesting
The Netflix office in Warsaw will help the company to build a long-term cooperation in the region and deepen existing ties, creating new opportunities for content creators and producers.
For Ukrainians, the opening of the new regional office in Poland, which will also cover Ukrainian market among others, is definitely good news. Western companies often mixed up Ukraine with russia, which is wrong and inappropriate, especially considering the fact that russia launched a hybrid war with Ukraine in 2014, and a full-scale war on February 24, 2022.
Netflix doesn’t make this mistake anymore. Moreover, the company suspended its services in russia and stopped the production of all russian projects in the early March.
