Your dream job is here: Netflix is hiring someone to basically binge watch TV

Netflix "editorial analyst" is fancy talk for couch potato.

We all know how hard watching TV is, right? And you should totally be paid for it, right? Well, Netflix knows the struggle is real and decided to hire someone for the terrible task of binging hours and hours and hours of shows for them.

The TV streaming service is seeking an "editorial analyst" to come on board and "watch, research, rate, tag, annotate and write analysis for movie and TV content" for their Netflix Originals catalogue; basically you'd be watching popular shows like Stranger Things, The Crown, Narcos, Mindhunter and House of Cards.

Stranger Things.

Apparently the only qualifications you'll need for this hideous gig are to be "passionate about movies and TV with a deep knowledge of the entertainment industry" and able to live and work in Los Angeles.

Sherrie Gulmahamad, a Netflix employee who hold a similar position watching 20 hours a week of TV and movies as part of her job, told Fast Company, "Our job is very much like being a librarian and making sure things are classified accurately, but you also have the broad knowledge base of how TV shows or movies are related, and if they look good together in a row on our site," she says.

Adding: "Netflix looks for someone who has both skill sets, plus a passion for innovation. We are always looking for new ways to highlight our originals content, and that means helping other teams brainstorm ideas on how the user interface on the site could change, or how to improve our recommendations algorithms, or create new tags."

So get your CV and popcorn ready.
