If you’ve ever dreamt of traveling for a living, Ramada by Wyndham is here to make your dreams come true. The hotel brand just announced its search for a CEO, aka a Chief Eats Officer, who will travel the world in search of its most delicious culinary delights. The three-week gig will pay $10,000, plus the cost of accommodations, economy airfare, a $150 daily travel stipend and Wyndham Rewards Diamond level membership for one year.

“Food is the key that opens the door to new cultures, which is what Ramada by Wyndham is all about, inspiring travelers while connecting them to new global experiences,” Stephanie Kendrick, brand leader and VP of Operations, Ramada by Wyndham, said in a statement.

The new CEO will be responsible for documenting — with photo, video and written content — a curated list of their global food picks on social media, which will also be featured on Ramada’s website and social channels to help inspire others to travel and eat with the hotel chain. Applicants must be 21 or older with a valid passport, active and proficient on social media platforms like TikTok and Instagram, fluent in spoken and written English, and, maybe most importantly, a self-professed food lover. 

If you think you have what it takes to become Ramada’s next CEO, post a public video via TikTok tagging @RamadabyWyndham and #RamadaCEO describing what makes you the ideal candidate. Video submissions should be at least two minutes, and candidates are encouraged to demonstrate food and travel flair, as well as storytelling skills and social savviness. Applicants applying via TikTok must follow @RamadabyWyndham to be considered. Alternatively, candidates may email their video to makemeceo@ramada.com.

Ten grand (that’s a $476.19 day rate for anyone who needs a breakdown) for three weeks of traveling and eating sounds like a pretty awesome gig for anyone who wants to put their social media prowess to good use. And for those who want to travel for a living, it’s certainly less obscure than becoming a professional bed warmer.
