The gig, which includes round-trip travel from wherever you live to Sweden’s Idre fjäll mountain, will involve you essentially testing out and giving feedback on Tenson’s latest equipment at one of Scandinavia’s biggest resorts for four days while earning $30 an hour. Beyond that, you’ll be wined and dined (“we’ve got a lot more to offer than meatballs”), and staying in a cabin steps from the mountain. Plus, you’ll get a set of Tenson gear to keep forever, receive eight hours of private lessons, and even get to bring a friend along for the whole adventure, all expenses paid.
As for the type of testing you’ll be doing, it’s fairly vague. However, they’re clearly looking for someone without a ton of skill.
“The Tenson product development department needs first-hand intel on how our ski gear can, for instance, withstand a 50 meter long tumble against an icy slope, going all in (and beyond) on the after-ski party and getting caught in the t-bar ski lift,” reads an excerpt from the job description. “We believe that the successful candidate for the job has a test-and-learn mentality, never got a compliment for their riding style and thrives in a fast-paced environment.”
If you think you have the thoroughly average skills they’re looking for, fill out the online application before February 11 and hope for the best.
