    Default FMV Games on Netflix, A.K.A. "Interactive Films"

    Seems Netflix is serious about the entertainment business, so much so that it is getting into FMV games! Over there, they call them "Interactive Films" and not only do they have several online already, but they are hiring Product Designers for them! Have you tried any of these FMV games on Netflix?

    In June 2017, the streaming media company Netflix announced they would begin releasing interactive programming:

    Today, we're excited to announce our first interactive "branching" narrative episodes Puss in Book: Trapped in an Epic Tale and Buddy Thunderstruck: The Maybe Pile, where Netflix members are in control of how the stories unfold. The intertwining of our engineers in Silicon Valley and the creative minds in Hollywood has opened up this new world of storytelling possibilities on Netflix.

    Product Designer, Interactive Experiences
    Los Gatos, California
    On the heels of Black Mirror: Bandersnatch, we are looking for a lead-level product designer to help Netflix continue to push the boundaries of interactive video and new content-related product experiences. This role will work closely with a talented team of designers, product managers, engineers, content executives, and external partners to create the next generation of story experiences for millions of Netflix viewers around the world.

    About You
    You’re equally comfortable shaping narrative experiences as you are defining complex UX patterns and frameworks in order to help our team expand the definition of “interactive" across Netflix. You balance a passion for storytelling and creating gorgeous and emotionally resonant user experiences with a strong desire of understanding user behavior and success through data and consumer insights. When faced with limits and ambiguity, you become more — not less — creative. You love this zone. You bring projects from concept to completion, doing everything possible to ensure their success.

    You’re smart, confident, highly competent—and humble enough not to have an ego. You’re a skilled communicator who welcomes honest, candid feedback, and your first instinct is to collaborate with others to challenge and make your ideas even better. You partner with a cross-functional team to oversee the experience from conception to launch (and then some).
    Initiate, define and lead innovation initiatives and projects from concept to completion
    Collaborate with a team of designers (visual, interactive, motion), prototypers, and content producers to explore, test, and evolve interactive experiences on Netflix
    Own full-stack design process—from blue sky exploration to interaction wireframes to polished UI designs to detailed UX specs
    Develop and maintain positive relationships with PM, Content, Engineering and Consumer Insights partners
    Help to create a strong interactive point-of-view and help cross-functional teams to understand the vision
    8+ years design on consumer-friendly interactive experiences
    Multiple successful product/digital launches that drove meaningful impact to the business
    Content production experience in the development of linear and/or interactive narratives
    A great portfolio that showcases deep visual and interaction design skills
    Ability to quickly produce a great range of UX/UI concepts
    The communication skills to clearly articulate your concepts—and evangelize on their behalf
    Proven leadership and strategic ability to drive initiatives and projects with teams
    An appreciation of A/B testing and using data to inform design decisions
    A love of movies, TV shows and interactive media
    Why you’ll love it here:
    Your work is experiences globally by 300+ viewers (and growing) in 190 countries
    You are empowered to imagine what “interactive TV” means and create new delight for our members
    You are surrounded by many talented people that you’re inspired by everyday
    On the spectrum from careful to reckless, we live right on the border of reckless (otherwise we’re not pushing boundaries)
    You get control how you approach solving problems and what tools you use
