Are you a re-run addict? If so, this may be your dream job.

Netflix is advertising for someone to sit at home and watch TV. The role comes with an official title of ‘tagger’ and promises “flexible hours working from home”.

In the post the company said the role would suit someone with a “passion for films and TV programmes”. However, they aren’t after any old couch potato – they want a university educated one or someone with analysis experience.

Unfortunately for Australian TV junkies the role is only open to UK and Ireland based applications.

But with Netflix rumoured to be making its way to Australia next year maybe their is hope for local TV lovers.

The post also describes how Netflix categorises content for its recommendation system.

Netflix’s UK/Ireland Tagger Job:

“Netflix, the world’s leading internet channel for movies and TV is launching a hunt for a UK/Ireland based tagger to join its enhanced content team.

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 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.

Core skills and qualities of this role will include:

  • Movie and TV content expert
  • Great organizational skills
  • Tenacious about follow-through and follow-up on a project
  • Detail-oriented

Preferred technical skills:

  • Experience with Content or Asset Management Systems
  • Excel

Background:

  • 1-2 years website/media/new media company experience
  • Movie or TV editorial experience a plus”
