"The overall market range for roles in this area of Netflix is typically $300,000 - $900,000," the company noted on its website.

The role requires a technical background in engineering and/or machine learning, the ability to collaborate with data scientists and build partnerships with other product managers across the organisation.

Netflix also claimed that the position is different from other technology companies. “Our key product management leaders - including this position - work with multiple sprint teams but do not have direct reports. Consequently, we’re looking for experienced product leaders who are strategic and also like rolling up their sleeves,” the hiring announcement stated.

The streaming giant also has an opening for an AI technical director in its Game Studio with an annual salary of $650,000 (about 5 crore).

This marks the first time since 1960 that writers and actors have gone on strike simultaneously, bringing the industry to a standstill.
