Netflix Internship – Economist

Website Netflix

Job Description:

The successful candidate must display, through attitude and accomplishments, strong initiative for anticipating and meeting the business demands of senior-level business managers. They must thrive in a fast-paced environment, possess a high level of intellectual curiosity, focus on generating results, and exhibit the highest personal and professional standards of integrity and ethics. We are looking for someone who is experienced in working at the intersection of economics, public policy and regulation across different countries. The candidate will need to turn data and economic research into insights and thought leadership; which will also require turning broad, ambiguous questions into tangible insights communicated externally to our Public Policy stakeholders.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Commission and support research projects from third parties to drive our global and regional policy strategy.
  • Work closely with multiple teams across Netflix to ensure that the Public Policy team is able to leverage data and insights from these teams.
  • Track research and reports from third-party sources relevant to the work of the Public Policy team and that can inform new research projects.
  • Undertake data analysis to support our global policy work.
  • Manage and conduct economic analysis of the implications of public policies on our business, particularly working closely with policy colleagues across all regions.
  • Work in tandem with public policy and other cross-functional teams (especially the comms teams) to ensure that economic research, insights and analysis have external impact.

Qualification & Experience:

  • Undergraduate degree and a postgraduate degree in economics, economics and statistics, or economics and politics.
  • Experience in working across different markets and comfortable working with colleagues from different cultures.
  • Proven experience in turning data, trends analysis and economic research into stories which can reach a wider audience.
  • 8+ years of experience working as an economist in government or for a regulator or a company or a multilateral organization, and/or in consulting roles on public policy issues. (For candidates with a Phd, typically we would look at candidates with 5 years post-Phd experience, though note that a Phd is not required for this role.)
  • Expertise in the media sector is a plus though not required.
  • Strong communication/presentation skills with a track record of presenting complex analyses to executives/senior management clearly and concisely and the ability to synthesize, simplify and explain complex problems to different types of audiences internally and externally.
  • Modeling skills and experience conducting quantitative and qualitative analysis.
  • Proficiency with Google tools as well as MS Excel & PowerPoint. Knowledge of statistical packages such as R and Python and experience with SQL is a plus.
