Netflix has a new job listing up for a "Netflix Tagger," which is someone who will basically get paid to watch Netflix.

Netflix describes the position in the above video:

...A very special discerning viewer whose love for film and TV is so great that they're ready to join our team of Netflix Taggers. Taggers are the bright sparks who help us make your Netflix personal. Their analytical minds pick up on the most subtle details. That's why your Netflix profile doesn't look like your gran's (unless of course you have similar tastes). Sounds like a great job, doesn't it?

More from the job listing:

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.

This “tagging process” is the first stage of the Netflix recommendation system and works in concert with advanced algorithms that generate highly personalized suggestions for every one of Netflix’s nearly 50 million members, offering them an individualized 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 position is for someone from the UK/Ireland. Sorry, fellow Americans.
