Experience

Director, UI Engineering

Netflix

Jun 2015 - current

At Netflix, I lead the Acquisition UI Engineering team that drives product innovation and growth for our sign-up and acquisition channels across all platforms. We build the front-door to the Netflix product. Our team collaborates closely with product management and design to deliver compelling experiences across the web, Android, iOS and TVs. Netflix now has more than 100 million paid subscribers, with the majority of those being international. As we look forward, most of our growth is coming from outside the US, and particularly in emerging markets. Our team is working on how we can attract the next 100 million members.
