Netflix’s mission is to entertain the world by building the world’s leading streaming platform offering great films and series that push the boundaries of storytelling and delight members of all ages and tastes across the world. As we grow our business and teams, we look for people from a wide range of backgrounds to reflect the diversity of our members across the globe. It takes a diversity of lived experiences, cultures, backgrounds and perspectives to create a truly global entertainment company. While we value diversity within our teams, we also recognize that building an inclusive environment where all employees are expected, respected and reflected is of even greater importance - without inclusion, unlocking the true potential of diversity is impossible.
At Netflix, all employees have a shared responsibility to build and nurture an inclusive culture - not just one person or team. We believe we must work from the inside out to create a place where top talent from all over the world can do the best work of their lives.
We are focused on delivering world class stories that audiences in South Korea, and around the world, will love. Netflix launched here in 2016, and our business has enjoyed tremendous growth since then - thanks to titles such as Squid Game and Extraordinary Attorney Woo to name a few.
