Love tacos?

Well, have we got the dream position for you.

You can be one company’s next CTO!

No, not the Chief Technology Officer. We’re talking about taking your taco-eating obsession to the next level as Favor’s Chief Taco Officer.

Favor is a Texas-based delivery service that wants to pay “one energetic, hungry and social-savvy Texan $10,000 to track down the best tacos across the state this summer.” The chosen taco guru will travel across Texas and taste test all the tacos (delivered by Favor, naturally) while documenting the experience.

In addition to $10,000 in cash, the Chief Taco Officer will receive food, accommodations, transportation in each city, wellness activities – like massages and yoga classes – plus custom Favor swag and free Favor delivery for a year.

“The history and culture behind one of the most iconic foods in the Lone Star State vary from city to city, and we’re excited for our new Chief Taco Officer to discover some of the best and most authentic tacos out there,” Jag Bath, Favor CEO, said in a press release.

The ideal candidate knows their way around TikTok, Instagram and Twitter, isn’t shy on camera, and is an adventurous eater always willing to try something new. Candidates also need to be Texas residents over 21 years old.

To apply for Favor’s Chief Taco Officer position, you need to:

  1. Create a 60 second or less video explaining why you should be the Chief Taco Officer and what makes you excited about the job.
  2. Post the video to your TikTok or Instagram Reel. Your account needs to be public, plus you need to tag @Favor and use the #FavorDreamJob hashtag.
  3. Fill out the application on Favor’s website and include the video link.

After that, just sit back and dream about your possible taco-filled future. Favor said it will reach out to applicants who are finalists for the position.

Chief Taco Officer duties begin in June 2022 and last through July 31, 2022.
