TikTok has blown up this past year and because of that Nerf has decided to hire a TikTok Chief Officer, which will be a three-month gig paying $10,000 per month!
That's insane just to post TikTok videos, but Teresa Pearson, Nerf's senior director of global brand strategy and marketing said they could use some help when it comes to the social media app, "while the Nerf global marketing team really is best-in-class at what they do in terms of creativity and connecting with our fans, we admit we could use some help as the brand steps into the world of TikTok. We're ready to hand over the social reins t one talented creator to run the Nerf TikTok account."
And it sounds like as long as you love Nerf are a TikTok pro you have a shot at the job!

If this sounds like a dream, that’s because it is.
We are looking for a creator who is a Nerf enthusiast, a TikTok extraordinaire, has good comedic timing, and knows how to use a ring light. Is your heart racing? Does it feel like we are speaking right to…you? If you are fluent in this language, this might be a perfect match. We think this job is so cool we were thinking of quitting ours to apply, but we’re still learning the Renegade dance so…”
