The Ontario-based company is looking for “the world’s first and only chief candy officer” with a hefty paycheck for the position. Who wouldn’t want to get paid $100,000 Canadian dollars ($78,167.70 U.S. dollars) annually to test candy all day?

According to the job posting, the position can be held remotely or based in its offices in Toronto, Canada, and Newark, New Jersey. The chief candy officer will serve as the head taste tester for the company, trying over 3,500 every month.

“All you need is a passion for candy, pop culture, and a sweet tooth!” the job posting reads.
