Are you an incredible DJ? Are you master of the decks? Can you feel the room, create a vibe, get people dancing and make an event unforgettable? Do you love music, pop culture, travel and making people happy?

If you answered yes, then there may be a perfect job waiting for you.

Triller, the popular AI-powered social media and music discovery platform, is launching a global search to fill what is arguably the world’s greatest job opening for aspiring DJs from around the world: full-time Resident DJ for Triller, with a $1 million annual salary.

The candidate selected will become the first-ever Resident DJ for Triller, performing for Verzuz, Triller Live, Triller Fight Club, FITE, and all other Triller live events and programming, as well as representing the Triller brand globally through media, appearances and other marketing. The Resident DJ will help additionally design music programs for Triller brand partnerships as well as new music initiatives across all Triller verticals. The position is based in Los Angeles and includes extensive travel.

“We’re excited to help find Triller’s new Resident DJ, which will be a DJ gig like no other,” said Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, co-founders of Verzuz, which will determine the final candidate to earn the job. “The Verzuz audience knows what’s up, so when the voting begins you can be sure the winning DJ will be someone who has all the right stuff. We can’t wait to discover the next superstar behind the decks.”

“This is a brand new, once-in-a-lifetime position that will represent Triller across everything we do, from our live events to brand partnerships and everything in between,” said Bobby Sarnevesht, Executive Chairman of Triller. “We’re looking for a performer at heart, someone with a big personality, incredible personal flair, and technical skills to match; someone who not only has his, her or their finger on the pulse of music and culture, but who is also creating it. We cannot wait to discover the next superstar behind the decks and have them join our incredible Triller team. To all of you DJs around world, it’s time to show us your stuff!”

And, of course, Triller wouldn’t be Triller if it didn’t fill the position in Triller-style. Triller’s global search will be conducted exclusively on the Triller app. Beginning July 13, Triller is inviting DJs from around the world to post their best 5-minute sets on the Triller app using the #TrillerDJ hashtag. Over the next several weeks, Triller will narrow the field to 16 final candidates to be announced on August 8 (aka “808 Day”). Finalists then will “battle” each other on the popular music live-streaming platform Verzuz, which was recently acquired by Triller, with the final battle to land the coveted job taking place during the TrillerVerz weekend music festival beginning September 10. Audience votes on Verzuz will determine the final winner of the $1 million-salaried position.

Eligible candidates auditioning for Resident DJ can live anywhere in the world and must be 18 years of age with a valid passport. Triller will pay relocation fees and a $1 million annual salary.
