"Maybe I'm biased, but these are the best jobs ever. I mean... getting paid to go on a road trip in an epic Chocotruck with the goal of making the world a better place? Yes, please," Dena White, US marketing manager for Tony's Chocolonely, said in a statement. "We're very crazy about chocolate and we want to share the fun with choco fans across the country. But don't be mistaken. We're very serious about our mission. Everything we do is to achieve a single goal: to make all chocolate worldwide 100% slave free. The Chocotruck is our way of taking our mission on the road and sharing our story with as many new friends as we can."
The Chocotruck (pictured in a rendering below) is kind of like a food truck, but loaded with "vast" amounts of Tony's Chocolonely chocolate bars. At stops along the national tour, visitors will get to step inside the truck to learn about the company's efforts to end inequality in the industry while sampling chocolates. As Chocotruck Captain, you'd be tasked with keeping the truck stocked with chocolate, taking photos, managing activations, submitting daily recaps to the company, managing the two co-pilots, and several other responsibilities. In other words, you'd be super busy actually working, not just sitting back and pounding chocolate bars.
Tony's Chocolonely said the position will last for four months, but there's a chance it could be extended into a permanent job at the company. During those four months, the Chocotruck will visit 10 cities: Austin (you'll start at SXSW), Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley, Eugene, Portland (Tony's Chocolonely's US headquarters), Seattle, and Chicago. The company said it's accepting applications from anyone who's authorized to work in the US, so it doesn't matter where you live. However, there are some basic requirements for the job.
