Singaporean company offers to pay people to play ‘Pokémon Go’

SINGAPORE — We rubbed our eyes and checked what we were reading twice. Yeah folks, we might just have stumbled upon the best job in the world: getting paid to play Pokémon Go.

Singaporean social marketplace Funzing posted a job ad on its Facebook page on Wednesday, saying it’s looking for a Pokémon master for what it claims to be the “first ever Pokémon job in the world.”

Details are still skimp at the moment, but the post did make sure to state that selected candidates will get paid to play the popular augmented reality game.

Perhaps this guy would like to apply. Last month, a New Zealand bartender announced he was quitting his job to play the game full time.

Pokémon Go first launched in the U.S. and Australia in early July, followed by Europe. It took more than two weeks for the game to drop in Japan and Hong Kong, before it finally arrived in Singapore and neighboring countries in the region on Saturday.

Businesses have since been quick to take advantage of the game’s popularity to create opportunities and buzz. But from what we know so far, this seems like the first company that will allow you to put “professional Pokémon trainer” on your CV. 

Sign us up, already.
