[Jobs Roundup] Join the OTT trend with these openings at Netflix India

Last year, Netflix announced that India was its second largest market outside the US. Recently, the OTT platform launched its user interface in Hindi.

Gone are the days of renting DVDs or downloading individual movies off the internet. OTT (Over The Top) service platforms have changed the way the world consumes content — one subscription gives you access to a vast range of films, documentaries, specials, and series.

Users are now consuming content anywhere they want — on television, PC, laptops, and even in their smartphones. This, along with the favorable tailwinds brought in by the COVID-19 pandemic, has resulted in OTT being the fastest-growing segment of India's media and entertainment sector.

An important player driving India's OTT trend is Netflix. The American OTT platform launched in India more than four years ago and 'chilling' has never been the same. Netflix, which is now present in over 190 countries, announced earlier last year that India is Netflix's second-largest market outside US.

Earlier this year, Netflix also launched its user interface in Hindi, enabling members who prefer the language to access their choice of films and series.
