First reported by mobilegamer.biz, Netflix is seeking candidates with “At least 10 years of game design experience including experience as a Creative Director, Game Director, or comparable design leadership role”.

Furthermore, it may seem that the new AAA PC-game in development in Netflix may just be a shooter as Netflix has stated that “Experience with FPS and/or Third Person Shooter games is preferred”.

The Game Director role will also have responsibilities such as implementing initial game features within the game prototype in Unreal Engine.

The successful candidate will then be able to “create, ship and run a game without any competing design constraints due to monetization”.

Netflix is also looking for a technical director, art director, and live service analyst. As well as lead engineer with reference to building “an exciting new 3rd person action RPG”.
