Netflix is hiring, and although the job title “editorial analyst” doesn’t sound terribly glamorous, the beauty is in the fine print. The job essentially entails binge-watching new Netflix offerings and providing feedback to the company about them.
Netflix plans on using the data gathered to tailor new movies and shows and determine how to best market the projects already in production.
According to the website, the job would require qualified applicants to “watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content.”
Do you love movies and TV shows? Are you interested in sharing unique content with viewers around the world? We are seeking an entertainment-savvy analyst to help categorize television series, specials, and movies for our 100+ million users.
Qualifications include being “passionate about movies and TV with a deep knowledge of the entertainment industry” and the “ability to distill the essence of a movie/show and share findings in a concise manner.”
Netflix also asks that applicants display a strong work ethic, the ability to multitask, and the ability to work with minimal supervision to meet “tight deadlines.”
But there is a catch. So far, the job is only open to those proficient in Japanese.
