Netflix to Launch in Six More European Countries
IBTimes UK

Netflix is on the hunt for people in the UK and Ireland to work for them as Taggers - entertainment fans whose job it is to watch every show and movie on the service.

It may sound like a coach potato's dream job but it's very much a reality. Here's the job description as described by Netflix themselves...

"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 (e.g. as a critic or work in development) would also be well suited." (via Netflix)

You don't even have to watch it all in an office as you work from home, providing the tags that help unprofessional, unpaid binge-watchers like us find the next show or film to sink our spare time into.

Netflix even made a quirky ad for the position, which you can see below.
