According to Delish, the chosen aficionado is needed to test the review site’s recently unveiled Yelp Taco Trail, a comprehensive list of the top 100 taco spots across the nation.

And the four-month gig comes with a $20,000 salary to foot the bill, the company confirmed in a blog post.

“Topping the list is Fernandez Restaurant in San Diego, Caliornia, where Yelpers rave about the birria tacos. Whether you are craving fish tacos (try No. 2 Taco Nazo in Bellflower, California) or breakfast tacos (No. 4 Granny’s Tacos in Austin, Texas), there’s a place on the trail for every possible taco filling,” Yelp stated in its call for entries.

Of course, there’s a little more to the mouth-watering assignment than scarfing down some of the country’s top treats: The lucky winner will be required to create three videos per month and three separate blog posts “about their experience at each taco spot,” Yelp clarified.

According to Delish, the contest runs through Oct. 4, with the winner announced on or around Oct. 19.

Per Yelp, interested applicants should submit a 30- to 60-second video at TacoTrailblazer.Yelp.com, explaining why they are qualified to tour the taco trail. Applicants will also be asked to create a Yelp collection of their favorite taco-serving businesses.
