Netflix wants to PAY someone to watch TV shows and movies

It’s everyone’s idea of the dream job – being paid to sit around at home all day in your underwear, watching as many TV shows and movies as you please.

Well, now Netflix is looking to make that dream come true.

The internet streaming service is looking to hire “taggers” for the UK and Ireland.

The Netflix job advert says: “Successful applicants will be responsible for watching and analysing films and TV programmes that will be streaming on Netflix in the future. The tagger will deconstruct the films and programmes and describe them using objective tags.

“This ‘tagging process’ is the first stage of the Netflix recommendation system and works in concert with advanced algorithms that generate highly personalised suggestions for every one of Netflix’s nearly 50 million members, offering them an individualised set of titles matching their tastes.

“Other responsibilities may also include acting as a UK/IE cultural consultant, highlighting UK/IE cultural specificities and taste preferences.

“The role will offer flexible hours working from home and would suit those with a passion for films and TV programmes, as evidenced by a degree in film or film history and/or experience directing, screening writing or filmmaking. Applicants with analysis experience (eg, as a critic or work in development) would also be well suited.”

There’s no word on what the job pays, but our guess is that it will be a free Netflix subscription plus a weekly pizza and a six-pack of beer.
