ShopBack, a Singapore-based e-commerce startup, has launched a campaign with Linkedln to find the ‘biggest online shopping aficionado’. The selected winner will join ShopBack as its chief shopping officer.
The campaign saw the startup put out a job advertisement on LinkedIn’s Job of the Week, which has a job description that states the role is a part-time position for two months from 1 March 2018 to 30 April 2018 and the work will be remote.
The CSO will be paid SGD $11,271 with variable bonus to identify the best deals and shop for him or herself at any of ShopBack’s 500+ merchant partners, including Singapore Airlines, FoodPanda, Cathay Cineplexes and Grab.
According to ShopBack, the platform is looking for applicants with at least two to three years of online shopping experience, familiar with different bargains, comfortable on video and have video editing skills, and an expert in sniffing out the best deals.
“LinkedIn Job of the Week is our way of highlighting the wide range of interesting opportunities available on LinkedIn today. Professionals can now access so many different types of opportunities, from full-time positions to temporary roles like the Chief Shopping Officer,” said Linda Lee, head of communications for Southeast Asia and North Asia at LinkedIn.
“Increasingly, we’re seeing companies in Singapore and the Asia-Pacific region hire for more fun and unconventional roles, so remember to stay engaged with your network – your dream job could be just a connection away!”
Applicants must also film a one to two minute video of themselves showcasing the one interesting fact about themselves, two best bargains they have bought online and three reasons why they want the job.
