The company is hiring a CMO – “Chief Margarita Officer” – for a one-day job that’s worth $1000 in On the Border gift cards, a stack of OTB CMO business cards plus free chips and salsa for a year.

“The ideal candidate must be able mix margaritas on short notice, distinguish between fresh-squeezed lime juice and canned limeade and make a solid argument for why salt is better than a sugar rim.”

·       Team player/leader: Understands that a good margarita can often help the cross-functional team have more interesting and robust discussions

·       Must be able to effectively identify the best margarita pairings for a yellow queso, a white queso, a roasted tomatillo salsa, a more traditional tomato salsa and a great steak fajita

·       Must remain composed.  Like a good margarita, doesn’t melt under pressure and likes it rocky too.  Knows that a little salt and fresh squeezed lime in life adds that extra little kick

·       Should be able to, identify the region, type of tequila, vintage and producer with a quick glance, whiff and sip; friends and family have traditionally recognized you as a tequila and margarita savant.  At minimum, should be able to visually distinguish between a silver and gold tequila.
