If you’ve seen Vita Coco’s latest ad, you already know that Chrissy Teigen’s “Plant Manager” gig is the ultimate dream job. Luckily for job seekers, Vita Coco is looking for another Plant Manager to join its staff, but it won’t involve your average job application.

Vita Coco is giving college students and graduates a chance to tell Vita Coco why they’d be a perfect fit for the company. The only requirement is that you have to do so while riding down a three-story, 300-foot-long waterslide.

The company will host three different interview sessions — at Georgia State University on April 18, at Virginia Tech on April 24, and at the University of California San Diego on April 29. At the events, you can not only apply for the job, but also participate in giveaways, product samplings, games, and photo booths.


After the events, 12 finalists will be selected and voted on by consumers to become the next Plant Manager. The chosen candidate will win a three day trip to Vita Coco’s headquarters in New York to learn about the company, research and development, social media, and public relations. The new Plant Manager will also win a week-long trip to Sri Lanka to get to live like Teigen did in the ad.
