Attention, couch potatoes: You may be able to turn your Netflix habit into an actual, lucrative job.

Netflix is looking for a UK/Ireland-based "tagger" — a.k.a., someone to come up with the streaming service's often strangely specific categories for each show. The job posting seeks a candidate to "deconstruct" TV shows and movies to ensure they're labeled with the proper tags.

Netflix has at least 76,897 categories for its offerings, so the role of its tagger is likely much more tedious than you might expect. Still, it would be pretty fun to decide whether a film should be classified as an "Emotional Independent Drama for Hopeless Romantics" or a "Critically-Acclaimed Emotional Drug Movie."
