Must love beer and the outdoors. That's the job description for a brand-new position that Michelob Ultra Pure Gold (yes, the beer) is looking to fill. Fit the bill? Read on.

As you may have already realized, 2020 is the year of the RV vacation—but what if you could also turn it into the year you scored a gig with the ultimate office view and beverages? The successful candidate will become the beer brand’s first-ever CEO (that’s Chief Exploration Officer) and will be paid $50,000 (plus expenses) to zig-zag around the U.S. in a camper van for six months, rep the Pure Gold label, and document it all for social media. Since the job is being offered in partnership with the National Parks Foundation, you can expect to hit all the country’s best bucket list parks and then some.

According to the job listing, the ideal candidate is someone self-driven who not only loves but respects the great outdoors, has an eye and talent for great social media shots, and is willing to be a responsible traveler—we are still in a pandemic and climate change is real, y’all.

Minimum qualifications include "having a deep appreciation for the joy that connecting with nature brings” and being mentally and physically able to tackle several different hikes through national parks and other outdoor areas. It’ll also wildly improve your chances if you’ve got demonstrated experience creating ace content for social media and are willing to literally go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. 

Anyone without a valid driver’s license or who is not at least 21 years old (you know, since there’s beer involved) need not apply. And—we hope it goes without saying, but just in case—please enjoy this job responsibly. Do not drink and drive. 

Interested and qualified applicants can apply here—but you’d better step on it. Applications for this Pure Gold gig close on Sept. 30.
