Prime Video Buff

The Prime Video Buff will get paid up to $40k for the three-month job

Prime Video Australia has announced a nationwide search for a content junkie to fill a brand-new role—the Prime Video Buff.

Prime Video is on the hunt for someone who lives and breathes entertainment to be employed in a full-time role over Summer and get paid to watch and recommend the latest Prime Video films and TV shows to Australians.

Besides being paid up to $40K for the three-month job, the Prime Video Buff will get a whole host of additional job perks. From red carpet access and working from home (i.e. the lounge), to streaming the biggest Australian and international shows before they hit the platform.

Presenter and podcaster Osher Günsberg is helping Prime Video recruit for the role with the third-party agency it has engaged and will be reviewing applications alongside a panel of Amazon Original stars and in-house experts.

Günsberg said, “Just when you thought remote working was pretty good, along comes remote-control working. 

“The candidate who snags the gig as the Prime Video Buff won’t be a regular person, because this isn’t a regular job. Prime Video is looking right across the country for someone who is truly film- and TV-obsessed, nothing less. A person who can quote every line in a classic rom-com, who loves an action thriller as much as a cult classic.”

New research from Prime Video has revealed the average Australian has watched 67 movies and TV series this year alone. The research found that while some Australians (46%) enjoy a sophisticated AI to recommend them content, the human touch never goes astray, with more than 3 in 5 of those surveyed (64%) relying on word-of-mouth or expert recommendations to pick movies and TV shows.

This is where the Prime Video Buff comes in. The Prime Video Buff will get their hands on all the new titles coming to the platform, so they can tell Aussies why a particular show or movie needs to be on their “Must Watch” list.

Hushidar Kharas, head of Prime Video Australia and New Zealand said, “We know Australians love content, and with tens of thousands of titles on Prime Video, the Prime Video Buff role has been created to further help our customers discover something new—as choosing what to watch can be hard.

“We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes entertainment to help customers find new content and genres that they normally might not pick. We see this as a real opportunity to uncover a new talent in entertainment, while further helping our customers unlock new TV shows and movies.”
