The company is accepting applications and videos on their website and says, “For bonus points, they can include a video of why this is the scream job for them.”USDish’s job ad reads: ”We want to know everything about your experience. You will track your heart rate and jump scares. You’ll let us know who joined in on the scares with you. You’ll let us know what you thought before watching certain movies, and if your feelings changed after you completed them. You’ll even log your sleep—if you can sleep.”

Their new hire will get not only a copy of all thirteen movies, but they’ll also get a “survival kit” which includes “a blanket, popcorn, candy, and some Stephen King paraphernalia to set the stage for what is sure to be a terrifying experience.” They’re even provided a Fitbit to track your heartrate.
