Netflix hiring managers for Africa

Netflix is hiring two managers to help look after Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), according to job listings on its website.

Two jobs for “Africa” in the streaming service’s financial planning and analysis department, and marketing department – both based in the Netherlands – are advertised.

The first is a Manager, Marketing Planning & Analysis – EMEA, and the second a Senior Manager – EMEA Marketing Insights.

The two EMEA jobs join a listing for a Social Media Manager for the Middle East, which was first spotted online two months ago.

This fuelled speculation that Netflix would launch in countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.

Netflix told IGN Middle East: “We plan to complete our global expansion by the end of 2016. Of course the Middle East is part of that, hence our hiring.”

South Africa is also on Netflix’s global expansion plan, with the company confirming earlier this year that it plans to launch here by the end of 2016.
