Attention all shopaholics

This Singaporean e-commerce site is looking to fill an unconventional role. The requirement? Have shopping experience.

Do you buy your entire life online? Can you smell a bargain from afar? Are you Singapore’s biggest online shopping aficionado? If any of those sound like you, then get ready to live your biggest dream for two full months.

Singapore online coupon site ShopBack is on the hunt for a – believe it or not – Chief Shopping Officer.

Launching exclusively on LinkedIn as its latest Job of the Week, applications for the role of Chief Shopping Officer begin on February 12, 2018, and will run for a period of three weeks (ending on March 5, 2018). The Chief Shopping Officer will be officially announced on March 13, 2018.

The Chief Shopping Officer, a two month-role, will have a single core mission – identify the best deals and shop for him or herself at any of ShopBack’s over 500 merchant partners, including Singapore Airlines, FoodPanda, Cathay Cineplexes, Grab, and more.

To empower its Chief Shopping Officer to carry out this monumental task, ShopBack will be providing S$11,271 in shopping funds. All purchases and cashbacks accumulated during the period of employment will be for the Chief Shopping Officer to keep thereafter.

Here’s what ShopBack is looking out for, and it’s very serious that you possess these skills:

  • You’ve earned your shopper stripes – This is a daunting role, so at least two to three years of online shopping experience will be required
  • You’re familiar with different weapons of war – Bargains can come anytime, anywhere, so you have to be ready to shop whether you’re at home on your desktop or on-the-go with the ShopBack mobile app
  • You’re unfazed by the camera – This prestigious role comes with a healthy dose of fame and fortune, so you’ll need to be comfortable on camera, and have some video editing skills too
  • You are the “lobang” expert – Full price is overpriced! You always know where to sniff out the best bargains and, of course, you love sharing the best deals with everyone!

Sounds like you have what it takes? For more information on what you can do with your video, make sure to check out and apply through the official job posting on LinkedIn here:
