As Netflix continues to bolster its children’s content library, the SVOD giant has tapped game designer and No Crusts Interactive founder Carla Engelbrecht Fisher as its new director of product innovation for kids & family.
Relocating from New York to San Francisco, Fisher will act as the product lead for all Netflix kids and family-targeted viewer experiences across all devices.
Fisher, who will continue to contribute to her Kids Got Game blog on StreamDaily‘s sibling publication Kidscreen.com, is well-versed in the area of creating educational and developmentally appropriate interactive experiences for kids. Having spent nearly 15 years making children’s digital goods, she’s designed, produced, researched and consulted on a wide variety of commercial and educational products, from web to mobile to gaming consoles.
Prior to starting No Crusts Interactive, she worked for Sesame Workshop, PBS KIDS and Highlights for Children.
