Spend your summer playing video games and get paid for it

Say goodbye to boring summer gigs! Opera GX has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for one lucky gamer—to play video games and get paid for it. 

Not as a QA, or a journalist, or a streamer, just playing games like you would every day, for a week. And at the end, you’ll earn $5,000 for your trouble. That’s definitely better than flipping burgers, or walking the neighbor’s dog for spending money. 

To apply, you need to be an avid gamer, familiar with, have a PC, stable Internet, and speak fluent English. We won’t ask for a resume, or a lengthy, drawn-out application process: You just need to upload a video of yourself playing any game from, and tell us what you liked about it. Easy! Share your video on Twitter or TikTok with the hashtag #bestsummerjobever, and remember to tag @OperaGXOfficial. 
The Best Summer Job is open to applicants from many countries across the world (see terms and conditions for eligible countries). Applications close on 7 July 2022, so download Opera GX if you haven’t already, to head over to to start playing and recording. The winner will be contacted by the end of July. For more information and the fine print, you can view the job post here.
