Fonz Morris

Lead Product Designer, Global Conversion @Netflix

Keynote: Growth Design: Where Design and Business Intersect

Never in a million years did I think I would lead on the team helping Netflix grow to half a billion users. Not because I didn’t know I could, more of you never know where your life will take you.As a Growth Designer at Netflix, my goal is to convert as many new non-members and former members to paid subscribers as possible. Yes, that is a huge task, but I have access to many resources and the best colleagues. I also get to work across our various platforms, TV, Web, and iOS/Android.One of my first projects was a massive update to our NMHP(Non-member homepage) on TV. This page has not been updated in over ten years! And before I joined the team, they had already spent a year on the test. To put it in layman’s terms, I was coming in as the closer. It’s the bottom of the ninth inning, man on third, and Fonz is at-bat. Did he get a hit, or did he strike out…You Will Learn:
  • What is Growth Design
  • How a big company like Netflix values metrics
  • How we setup and execute an experiment
