The Best Summer Job - Only for True Gamers

Imagine spending your summer getting paid to play Internet games (!) while working with the team behind the browser for gamers.

As our recruit for The Best Summer Job, your job will be to play games. Lots of them—and then tell us what you think. You’ll earn $5,000 for a week of something you’d otherwise do for fun, and your feedback will help us improve the platform, and make it a gaming experience gamers like you want. Win-win! This is a once-in-a-lifetime shot to turn pleasure into profit, gaming into gains.

What you to bring to the table:

  • You are a gamer, passionate about multiple games and gaming genres
  • You know what is (bonus points if you’ve already signed up)
  • You have a PC and a stable Internet connection
  • You can speak fluent English

How to apply:

  1. Prepare a short video of yourself playing any game on, explaining everything you like about it
  2. Upload the video to Twitter or TikTok with the hashtag #bestsummerjobever. Remember to tag @operagxofficial and change your privacy settings to public.
  3. Apply before July 7th, 2022.

The fine print:

This is the first phase of the application process. The team will select a winner from all the videos submitted, and this person will get to play games on for a week, sharing their feedback. The team will create a video compilation with footage of the games recommended by the winner, and share it on social media. After this one-week period, the lucky winner will get a one-time payment of USD 5,000.

This is not an employment opportunity. One winner will be selected and asked to perform a week of gaming as an independent contractor of one of Opera's partners, not an employee of Opera. Payment is contingent upon the execution of a mutually agreeable independent contractor agreement between the candidate and the partner, and subjected to the Terms & Conditions. Void where prohibited.
