Best jobs #17: Massage interviewer

Googler Reza Behforooz has the enviable job of interviewing prospective Google massage therapists. "I sit in a massage chair and receive a massage and then write feedback about it. Oh yeah. Life really is that sweet."

Reza Behforooz, self described massage expert and software engineer, was asked

one day to do a massage interview. "It sounded Googley," Reza writes, so "I decided to help." Now Reza is a regular.

What exactly is a massage interview, you might ask? "I sit in a massage chair and receive a massage and then write feedback about it." At first Reza "felt a bit like a poser," but after a few months of experience started getting the hang of it.

When you find an awesome candidate who gives off a warm, calming attitude and just keeps magically making my (almost always) sore back disappear and lets me forget about all the stresses of the world for a few minutes, that's when I know we've found the next Google massage therapist.

That's gotta look good on a resume. "Oh yeah. Life really is that sweet."
