If you’ve ever daydreamed about a world in which you could pass time eating avocados in its various starring roles—toast, yogurt, smoothies, even dessert—as a straight-up professional, your chance to make it big has arrived.

Good Fat—Australia’s first avocado pop-up eatery—is opening up shop in Sydney, and the company is searching for the perfect ‘cado connoisseur to be crowned its Head of Avo Control. Because, yes, that’s a real job title that will soon be gracing one lucky person’s résumé.

So what does such a prestigious position entail? According to the job listing, you would be responsible for taste-testing 20 avocado-based dishes on the menu before the opening date, as well as sharing your experience on social media. But it’s not as simple as picking your favorite filter and enjoying endless samples of your favorite green fruit: There are some hefty requirements to even be considered for the role.

You need a minimum of two years’ experience in smashing avocados on toast, a proven knowledge of how to check avocado ripeness, and a healthy history of successful avocado selection.

To be a successful candidate, you need to have a minimum of two years’ experience in smashing avocados on toast (check!), proven knowledge of how to check avocado ripeness (check!), a healthy history of successful avocado selection (check!), and be available from October 31 to November 2 in Australia (checking plane tickets now!).

Yep, aside from the job being on the other side of the world, it’s also only a three-day gig. And it’s unpaid (if you fail to consider all the free avocado toast, that is). But, has there ever been a more healthy, Instagram-friendly, or career-advancing reason to dust off your passport and head down under?

Here’s one delicious way to take your avocado toast to the next level. Also, these kitchen tools will make all your avocado dreams come true.
