Today Translations, a translation firm based in London, is hiring for what is likely the world’s first position for an emoji translator.

The job, which calls for someone who can help translate “the world’s fastest growing language,” was created after Jurga Zilinskiene, the head of the company, needed someone to translate diary entries for a client, he told the BBC

According to the job listing, while certain software can be used when working with emoji, cultural differences in the way the symbols are used or interpreted can vary. 

The role of the translator will include monthly reports on developments and what’s trending in emoji, as well as reporting on areas where cultural differences can occur. A background in translation or in the language industry is preferred, and applicants should have skills in communication and organization.
