PanARMENIAN.Net - Netflix is searching for its first 'Tagger' in UK and Ireland, a job that involves getting paid to watch all the streaming services content ahead of everyone else, Digital Spy said.
In a press release explaining how Taggers work, Netflix said: "The truth is that with 48 million Netflix subscribers, there are 48 million different people looking for what to watch next - as a company that is 80% engineers and based in Silicon Valley, we don't leave it to chance. You might love Critically-Acclaimed-Emotional-Underdog-movies, whereas your Gran might be keen on Violent Suspenseful Action and Adventure from the 1980s.
"That is where Taggers come in: helping to pinpoint exactly what each member is going to want to watch next. It's a little bit art, a little bit science and is so super accurate that sometimes it feels like we are reading minds or tea-leaves (we're not!). We have a team of people called Taggers that help us to personalise your experience."
The new job, which is the first Tagger role outside of the US, would be perfect for anyone who "loves watching films and TV programmes - of different genres, from different countries and in every style imaginable".
An extra bonus for anyone who gets the job is that they will be among the first to view Netflix Original series such as House of Cards and Orange is the New Black.
Anyone applying for the role is expected to have a either "a degree in film and TV" or "a strong knowledge of film and TV" as well as an analytical mind.
