If you’re on your phone 80 percent of the time, and you’re fluent in emojis, then we may have found the perfect job for you!
Today Translations is looking for a true millennial/emoji expert to join their team of linguists! CEO Jurga Zilinskiene told BBC that the position was created because a client needed help translating a diary from English to emoji. What for? We’ll never know.
Today Translations is apparently the first company to ever come up with such a job, and it’s honestly brilliant. The company has 3,000 linguists who speak over 200 languages, so whoever lands this job is in for a real treat. Right now, it’s only for people who are willing to work freelance: "The job role states that the freelancer will be paid per word/emoji and will be expected to produce monthly reports, which are paid for by the hour. If the company is impressed by your emoji decoding skills, then a full-time position may eventually be up for grabs."
All you have to do is submit an application and take an online quiz to test your emoji knowledge! (We wonder how many eggplant emojis you'll have to decode.)
