You don't need to actually be named Karen, but you do need to be "Karen in nature" for a new job that looks to pay a woman $65/hour to review products online.

The job, listed by DehumidifierCritic.com, is seeking someone "hyper-critical and opinionated" to write three product reviews per week, while answering and maintaining a "Call-a-Karen" service.

According to the job listing:

The right ‘Karen’ will be initially contracted to three months employment, with the view to extend if the service is popular. We are recruiting a woman to write three (honest) reviews a week for our website, as well as be the voice and authority behind our Call-A-Karen service, which will see potential customers call for advice and recommendations on products."

If you're not familiar, recently, the name "Karen" has been used a pejorative term to describe an "angry, entitled" white woman of privilege who will often want to "speak to the manager" to complain about a variety of small, innocuous problems.

Oliver Perryman, founder of DehumidifierCritic.com, said:

Being a ‘Karen’ in 2020 probably means you’re going to have a hard time, but I wonder how many people stop and think about the potential benefits of being or knowing a ‘Karen’. We want to utilize a ‘Karen’s’ best assets and use it to ensure that we are not only providing the best experience onsite, but also helping members of the public to find the best product for them.”

You will be working remotely, with a company cell phone and "flexible hours." While applicants don't need to be named "Karen," they "certainly need to be a 'Karen' by nature," over the age of 21, and have access to property large enough to test products.

Karens must speak English and have a professional phone manner for the Call-a-Karen service.

The closing date for applications is Monday, Aug. 31.
