Netflix will pay new private flight attendant up to $385,000

Netflix has revealed that they are hiring a flight attendant for one of their private jets. The successful applicant will be paid a salary of up to $385,000 (£313,538) per annum.

The streaming platform, which has recently announced tighter restrictions on account sharing, says it is looking for candidates with “independent judgement, discretion and outstanding customer service skills.” It added that the applicant should also be able to “operate with little direction and a lot of self-motivation.”

“The overall market range for this role is typically $60,000 – $385,000. This market range is based on total compensation (vs only base salary), which is in line with our compensation philosophy,” Netflix said in the job listing on its website.

Netflix added that an employee’s salary is determined by considering “compensation factors,” including background, experience and skills. Based in San Jose, California, the job will involve domestic and international travel.

“The Netflix Aviation department provides exceptional, safe, confidential air transportation,” they add. “[The team] helps Netflix reach the world more efficiently and effectively so the company can continue to create joy around the world.”

The attendant’s duties on a “Super Midsize Jet” will include inspecting emergency equipment in the cockpit, cabin and gallery before takeoff. They will also require the muscle power to lift items as heavy as 13.6kg when loading the planes.

Early last year, Netflix cut hundreds of jobs after a fall in subscriber numbers before announcing tighter restrictions on account sharing and the potential for adverts on a lower subscription fee bracket. 

With the boost of popular shows like Stranger Things and Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, Netflix said it managed to add 2.4 million households to its subscriber base in the three months to the end of September, reversing a decline in subscriber numbers over the beginning of 2022.

Elsewhere, comedian Chris Rock is set to make history this year as the headline act of the streaming platform’s first-ever live, global streaming programme. Read more here.
