Netflix, a well-known streaming platform, has been present in Poland for years. The company has already produced more than 30 Polish films and series employing many Polish actors and crew working on a set. As of 2018, Netflix has allocated 400 million PLN for local productions. The year 2022 was significant, as the company opened an office for Central and Eastern Europe in Warsaw.
The company is not stopping and continues to invest in Poland. The next step will be to build an engineering team in Warsaw responsible for developing products and services used by Netlix’s internal and external partners. The Polish team will work on solutions from content production through deployment to publishing on the website, and will provide new and innovative ways to manage entertainment on a global scale.
Deborah Black, VP of engineering said “We chose Poland because of access to great specialists – Polish IT universities have an excellent reputation, and developers from Poland are valued experts, willingly employed around the world. We look forward to this partnership and believe that the new center will help us expand our global technology organization and bring even more innovation to the solutions we create”.
