Netflix: Now Hiring Professional Binge Watchers


Underqualified for the job you want, overqualified for the job you need. Such is the mantra of postgrad life—until now. Freshen up your résumés and dust off your TV screens, because your dream job is coming to a living room near you.

Netflix, in an effort to improve its “Recommended Shows” section, is hiring binge watchers to do just that. Binge watch. With a little less effort than a subtweeting pre-teen, if you can properly “tag” shows based on their content relative to others’ then you are in luck.

“Successful applicants will be responsible for watching and analyzing 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.”

It wasn’t specified if Netflix would provide per-diem to cover daily allotment of pizza rolls and boxed wine or if you would be assigned a personal shopper so stay tuned for more details.

Unfortunately, the job is only available in the United Kingdom and Ireland. However, if you’re willing to relocate to a couch in Europe then I encourage you to follow your passion. Binge watching, it’s the American Dream.

Actually, please don’t apply for it. I need this.
