Get Paid to Watch Bug Movies

Applications for this position are closed. Congratulations to our winner! Below is our original posting:

Are you a fan of bugs? No? Well, that’s ok. Are you a fan of movies? If you are, then we have the perfect job for you. We’re paying someone $1,500 to binge-watch bug-related films.


The line from the 1997 film Starship Troopers rings true for many: “The only good bug is a dead bug!” While we don’t entirely agree with that sentiment (as insects are a vital part of the Earth’s ecosystem), we get where they’re coming from. Seeing a pest scurry across your living room is less than ideal. However, a movie about bugs? Maybe not so bad! Insects and arachnids have been commonplace in films for decades.

We’re looking for someone who is willing to watch 10 of these movies and collect a whole lot of data on them. If that sounds like it could be you, keep reading to see exactly what we’re looking for in an ideal candidate and more about the task that could earn you $1,500.

We’re looking for a film enthusiast who can watch 10 bug-related movies in a short amount of time. In addition to watching the movies, you’ll be asked to take notes and track specific details in each film.

  • Enthusiasm for films, especially ones that are bug-related.
  • Strong attention to detail.
  • The ability and availability to binge-watch 10 movies in a short amount of time.

Additionally, applicants must be 18 years or older and a US citizen or permanent resident to apply.

What You’ll Need to Do

  • Eight-Legged Freaks
  • Arachnophobia
