This position is now filled. Thank you to everyone who applied! ❄️
We’re an analytical bunch here at SimpleTexting and have been known to take a data deep dive into popular TV shows and movies. We’re looking to execute a similar project this holiday season but instead focus on some of the most popular holiday movies.
That’s where you come in. We’re enlisting someone to help us binge-watch 12 holiday movies, identifying trends in dialogue, characters, and more along the way, for $1,000.
Who We’re Looking For
We’re looking for a Christmas enthusiast to help us quickly watch 12 classic Christmas movies. In addition to watching the movies, you’ll be asked to take notes and track specific details in each of the movies.
The ideal applicant will have:
- Overall enthusiasm for the holiday season – you’re the type of person who can’t wait until Thanksgiving to dig out the decorations and crank the Christmas tunes
- A love for movies, especially the holiday classics
- Strong attention to detail – nothing gets past you!
- The ability and availability to binge-watch 12 Christmas movies in a short amount of time
- Active social media accounts on Facebook and Twitter
Additionally, applicants must be 18 years or older and a US citizen or permanent resident to apply.
What You’ll Need to Do
We’ve narrowed the holiday classics to this list of 12 that you’ll be asked to binge-watch over one week’s time:
- A Christmas Story
- Home Alone
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- Jingle All the Way
- Love Actually
- Miracle on 34th Street
- National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation
- The Polar Express
- The Santa Clause
- White Christmas
You’ll receive a separate worksheet to complete for each movie as you watch. You’ll also be asked to chronicle your binge-watching journey on Facebook and Twitter. All movies will need to be watched and all worksheets will need to be completed by December 22, 2019.
What You’ll Get
In addition to the $1,000 payment, we’ll purchase all of the movies for you on Amazon Prime and provide a holiday cheer package to enjoy while you binge.
