The Norwegian company behind the internet browser Opera is offering $9,000 for a two-week dream job: browsing the web for fun. This “Personal Browser” will spend two weeks hunting for memes, watching cute baby animal videos, and researching unusual topics while live-streaming the experience on Opera’s social media.

“This might seem like a joke — but it really isn’t. We are indeed hiring a person to just surf the web and actually get paid for it. What we are looking for in a candidate is the unpolished truth, we want someone who has the guts to share their online experience with the world,” said a company rep.
IF you’re interested, you’ll have to submit a 15-60 second video talking about the most relevant browsing moment of your life. Talk about anything from a funny incident, a quirky coincidence, or a dead serious revelation. Applications are being accepted through November 13th.
