get paid to eat cheese

Do you love cheese? Are you looking to make a little extra money during this downtime we’re all currently experiencing? If so, this might be the perfect job opportunity for you.

Whisps, the crisp cheese company, is looking for a new “Cheese Executive Officer” (CEO, get it?) to join their team, and that means you could get paid $25 an hour to eat cheese at home.

If you win the job, you’ll earn up to $5,000 in cash and prizes as you are responsible for:

  • Taste-testing cheese (get monthly shipments of Whisps Cheese Crisps and quarterly shipments of artisan cheese from other cheesemakers)
  • Helping in the development of new Whisps flavors by providing feedback and quality testing
  • Brainstorming new product ideas
  • Serving as brand ambassador
  • Mingling with cheesemongers (attend the world-renowned cheese championships in 2022)

You’ll have the chance to get virtual training from cheese experts on what to evaluate when sampling cheeses, tasting techniques, cheese pairing ideas, and more.


Little to No Experience Required

What qualifications do you need to qualify for this cheese lover’s dream job?

You must truly love cheese (you’ll be eating a lot of it, after all), be at least 21 years old, not work for a competing snack company, and ideally have worked in a team environment before so you know how to collaborate with others.
