Who knew being thirsty could net you a $15,000 payday?

A New York-based startup called Hydrant is looking for a “chief thirst officer.” According to a job listing that opened for applications this Wednesday, the role is for an eight-week stint that requires one to – you guessed it – drink water.

The company, which manufactures flavored supplements for water, said in the listing that it was looking for a “THIRSTY b” who “(loves) the spotlight”, and who stays abreast of pop culture news and trends.

“As our Chief Thirst Officer, you’ll be the authority on all things hydration, making sure our audience is never thirsty (like never, ever). It starts with something as simple as drinking 8 glasses of water a day (with Hydrant of course). Once it kicks in…the world is your oyster,” wrote the company on the listing.

The person who lands this job will be paid $15,000 after eight weeks – which evens out to around $267 a day.

Of course, you’ll have to do more than just guzzle water to earn your keep.

Hydrant expects its “chief thirst officer” to make at least three videos a week to be posted on Instagram and TikTok. The application process is simple – Hydrant says one need only post a “creative AF” 15-second video to Instagram or TikTok telling the company “why you’re thirsty.”

In other dream jobs, weed company Emjay said this month that it was hiring interns to consume and review the company’s entire range of products.

The listing for the three-month internship said Emjay was looking for a “passionate, detail-oriented creative writer to review every single product on (its) weed delivery platform.” The company later expanded the number of internship slots from one to three – and hired Fredrick Lynn Miller, also known as “Freddie the Stoner,” who was recommended for the job by late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel.
