WASHINGTON (CIRCA) – Netflix is hiring someone to essentially binge watch its slate of upcoming original content, according to Esquire.
Esquire on Friday reported that the company recently posted a job opening for an editorial analyst of its original content.
Netflix has 700 shows planned for the remainder of 2018, meaning the Los Angeles-based role will have plenty of viewing options among the platform’s upcoming releases.
“We are seeking an entertainment-savvy analyst to help categorize television series, specials, and movies for our 100+ million users,” Netflix’s job description reads.
“You will be tagging, rating, researching, and enhancing title-level metadata for the Netflix Originals catalogue in a high-volume, high-quality, deadline-driven environment,” it adds.
“In addition, you will collaborate on special projects with cross-functional business partners, while striving to deliver delightful, trustworthy user experiences on a global scale.”
Netflix notes that the person will “watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content.”
The successful applicant must be “passionate about movies and TV with a deep knowledge of the entertainment industry.”
“The ideal candidate has a deep knowledge, 5+ years experience, and education in the film and/or television industry, can write efficiently with attention to detail, is comfortable using a variety of publishing tools, and is thoughtful in the delivery of information while working on a diverse team,” Netflix’s notice says.
Netflix adds that the ultimate candidate must possess the “ability to distinguish nuances within different movie and TV genres.”
“Proficiency in a second language beyond English is mandatory,” the notice mentions.
“Experience with content analysis, coverage, and development a plus,” it states. “Experience or education in media/video industry or archival studies a plus.”
Netflix boasts a deep catalog of streaming options, with its original programming including documentaries, movies, television series and more.
Original series including “House of Cards,” “Stranger Things” and “Orange is the New Black” have become pop culture phenomenons for the streaming giant.
