Netflix has been changing how people watch shows and movies, enabling seamless on-demand access across a wide variety of streaming devices, from set-top-boxes to mobile devices to TVs . Recently, we have expanded our entertainment offering with Live programming, like the  Chris Rock Comedy Special, the SAG Awards and The Netflix Slam tennis match.  We are looking for an experienced Technical Launch Manager to help drive the success of these live shows.
As Technical Launch Manager, you will be responsible for cross-functional coordination of the assigned Live show, partnering closely with all the Engineering teams in the critical path of Live, and stakeholders in Product, Production and Marketing.
Before the event, you will ensure that all partners are aligned on team responsibilities and show-specific features (broadcast technology, localization and accessibility requirements, social and marking needs, member-facing features),  and follow-up on execution. You will lead readiness reviews and assess risks and help drive them to resolution. You will schedule, coordinate and document pre-event testing and validation. You will plan for and coordinate the day-of-event launch (virtual) room presence and on-calls.
During the event, you will act as the call leader and manage communication across different teams. You will perform hands-on execution of operational steps if needed.  You will track issues and coordinate escalations with incident managers and relevant service owners.
After the event, you will compile operations summaries and coordinate retrospectives.
