If you've ever wanted to be paid to eat candy, now's your chance.
Candy Funhouse, a Canadian candy company, is hiring a "chief candy officer" to be the company's lead taste tester.
The CCO would test at least 3,500 products per month, according to the job listing, and "approve candy inventory and reward spotlight treats the official 'CCO Stamp of Approval.'"
The position pays 100,000 Canadian dollars per year (or around $78,000 in US dollars), and can either be remote or from the company's offices in Toronto if you're a Canadian resident or Newark, New Jersey if you're an American resident.
It's open to anyone five years of age or older, and no prior experience is needed. Those interested can apply until August 31.
"All you need is a passion for candy, pop culture, and a sweet tooth!," the listing said.
This wouldn't be the first outlandish "chief" hire made by a company. Favor, a Texas delivery company, hired a "chief taco officer" this year, paying him $10,000 to sample tacos in nine different regions.
Some companies have hired people just to binge watch TV. Last year, Platin Casino, an online casino company, hired someone to watch every episode of "The Simpsons" (over 700 of them) and note important events on the show that could predict real-life occurrences.
