If you've ever wondered how you can get paid to watch Netflix all day, congratulations: the streaming service hires people to do just that.

If you're one of the people who watched a total of 1 billion hours per week in 2017 or you've ever streamed in the bathroom, this could be your dream gig.

The position, called content or editorial analysts, is, in fact, real—their job is to watch shows and correctly tag them within Netflix's extensive categories. There are current openings for someone in the kids and family genre, as well anime programming.

The analysts don't just watch the shows, but categorize them according to ratings, as well as add tags and metadata to the content. Applicants should have deep knowledge of the genre they're applying for, and in the case of the anime position, be fluent in Japanese. Both jobs are full time and paid hourly out of the Los Angeles or Los Gatos, California Netflix offices.

If you'd rather keep your Netflix bingeing to a hobby, we understand—just move around every once and awhile, and try to get some rest, okay? Here's what's coming to the streaming service in April, and for old time's sake, you can find your first ever binged show using this hack.
