If you like breaking high-tech stuff, we may have found the job of your dreams. Believe it or not, a UK-based cell phone comparison website currently has a vacancy for ‘Mobile Phone Destruction Tester’, a part time position that pays £36,500 (nearly $55,00) a year! Read more from Oddity Central:

The ideal candidate for the job would be someone who loves mobile tech, and has a “long history of destruction, particularly in the field of mobile phones,” the listing on mentions.

“We want you to take the latest smartphones and put them through their paces in real world scenarios. Drop them in the bath, stomp them in the mosh pit, accidentally dip them in your Chicken Vindaloo.”

The listing revealed that the company is tired of doing boring mobile phone reviews. “Our readers aren’t interested in how much RAM they’re getting,” Tiger Mobiles claims. “They’re interested in how easy it is to smash a screen, if their pricey gadget can be cleaned. They want to know what will happen to their £600 mobile when a sticky toddler with a penchant for pyromania gets hold of it.” That’s where you and your talent for destruction come in.
