Netflix Wants To Pay You To Binge Watch Netflix

Attention all binge-watchers—we have found the perfect job for you. With the plethora of content Netflix releases, the company is looking for an Editorial Analyst of their Originals programming.

Your job would be to “watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content.” Not a bad gig, huh?

You’d get to watch Stranger Things before anyone else and explore the company’s more alternative shows like Dark or Ozark. You’d also be watching and tagging the robust documentary and comedy specials programming Netflix has dedicated weighted resources toward. Imagine watching Ava DuVernay’s The 13th or the new Chris Rock special, then getting to write the tagging and summaries for them.

All you need to do is be passionate about movies and TV, attaining some cursory knowledge of the entertainment industry writ large. You’d also need to write short blurbs to “distill the essence of a movie/show and share findings in a concise manner.” If you have experience in the film or TV industry, and can speak at length about the nuances of genre like horror and romance, you’ll have a leg up on the competition.

As they say, do what you love. If that’s binge-watching Netflix, why not get paid to do it?
