This Company Will Pay You to Make TikToks of Your Dog
You know your dog is a star, so why not share their cuteness with the world?
BARK, the dog company behind the dog toy subscription service BarkBox, is searching for the ultimate dog person to make TikToks of their pup. This person would be responsible for posting several videos a day of their precious canine in an effort to grow BARK’s presence on the platform. Frankly, turning our pets into viral superstars from home sounds like a pretty sweet gig.
The chosen person will be asked to create two to three videos a day on BARK’s TikTok account. Video might also incorporate a product from the company as well. This person would also be involved in finding “duetting” opportunities (a function on the app to record a video alongside another user) that feature BARK products, so some mild expertise in using the app is a big plus.
Most of all, BARK is looking for someone who is ready to have fun and showcase their adorable, talented pup with the internet masses. Some preferred skills include an understanding of how to create “viral” videos using popular soundbites/trends, a “weird-but-fun” sense of humor, and comfort with social media in general. No prior experience with this kind of work necessary!
A full description of the position is on LinkedIn. Although compensation is not stated, this is listed as a “contract” position. All dogs and their humans are welcome to apply.
In order to apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a note on why you’re interested in this role, samples of your work around the internet including examples of your TikTok videos, your dog’s Instagram account, your blog, your reel, (or anything else you want BARK to see), and a photo of your dog and your favorite quality about them. We know, it’ll be hard to just name one of your dog’s superior qualities.
