Sit in bed and watch Netflix all day? Yes, I do actually. Get paid for it? Only if I can find a way to pitch yet another story on "10 Ways OITNB Is Even More Fabulous Than You Realize". Well, now there is a real live job and it really involves sitting around watching Netflix and getting paid for it. I am not even kidding. So how do you land this job of the Gods?

1. Live in the UK or Ireland (I know! Discrimination! I can get a proxy that says I stream from there, is that not ENOUGH??)

2. Have a background in / strong interest in TV and Film. I'm guessing you wouldn't be reading this on Indiewire if you didn't, so yay you!

3. Have "great organizational skills" and be "tenacious about follow-through and follow-up on a project" as well as "detail-oriented". 

4. Apply HERE.

Good luck all you British /bent readers, goddam you!

    I am personally fed up with Netflix. I watched all 5 seasons of Sons of Anarchy and still waiting for season 6. Season 7 is coming out this fall and I haven't even seen season 6 yet. What's the problem????? I am really getting pissed off!!!

    I can move to Britain, that would combined two of my favorite things - living in london and watching TV!

    AMEN! So frustrating.

    Hello, I watch Netflix every day and I love it! I love that you can watch without advertisements. But, I think you guys should put more shows like Criminal Minds, The Mentalist and other CBS programs and more new movies. Also, I think you should bring back Legend of the Seeker, Teen Wolf series and SPOUNGEBOB!! Anybody agree!!

  • JACK tAYLOR | July 9, 2014 1:22 PMReply

    I pay $8 a month to not watch ,thanks; & that suites me fine

    The glaring grammatical error in this article makes me doubt the veracity of this author. Netflix is a single entity & therefore it should read "Netflix wants."

  • Bill | July 9, 2014 11:26 PM

    Wrong wrong wrong wrong. Wrong wrong wrong wrong. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG.

    "Netflix want to hire you" is perfectly acceptable English if the blogger is from the UK.

  • Stu | July 9, 2014 10:03 AM

    It's not actually a grammatical error - it's an area of grammatical uncertainty. Your ear might prefer the singular, but it's the choice of the author, ultimately. I'm a professional fiction editor and I wouldn't say that title reads 'very awkwardly' at all.

  • Kerry | July 9, 2014 9:43 AM

    The grammatical error jumped out at me as well since the title reads very awkwardly because of it.

  • Rather Be | July 9, 2014 9:35 AM

    Your bizarre and surely incorrect use of the word "veracity" makes me doubt your intelligence. (A grammatical quibble - a questionable one at that - leads you to doubt the truth of the article's claim? Despite the link to the job description provided?)

  • Nuria | July 9, 2014 4:56 AMReply

    I just did apply!!

  • NURIAFUCKYEAH | July 9, 2014 9:37 AM

    Go for it!!!!!!

  • rainey | July 9, 2014 1:37 AMReply

    curious about how much the compensation is! good luck to the applicants, definitely a job that's right up my alley ;)

  • jifat79 | July 8, 2014 11:55 PMReply

    i don't live anywhere near UK or Ireland.
    can i really get a proxy as if i'm streaming from there?
    i'm really interested in this.

  • Mary Kowalski | July 8, 2014 10:43 PMReply

    Are they going to do this in the US? I could sure use the pay and I have nothing else to do.

  • j kost | July 8, 2014 8:40 PMReply

    The title and body of the article are literally "how to get the job." Jesus.

    British doesn't also include people from Ireland

  • Helen Lee | July 8, 2014 1:55 PM

    That is true! I hope the non-Northern Irish /bent readers don't feel discriminated against by my remark! Good luck to ALL the Irish applicants!
