If you’re looking for a career change, we may have the perfect job for you.

The East Brother Light Station, which is on an island near San Francisco’s Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, is looking for a couple to operate their bed and breakfast.

The couple will be paid $130,000, to be split between them.

According to the San Francisco Gate, current operators Che Rodgers and Jillian Meeker will be turning over the operations of the lighthouse in April.

“The successful candidates will be a couple, one of whom must possess a Coast Guard commercial boat operator’s license,” the not-for-profit which operates the location wrote in a press release. “High quality culinary experience and capability will be a critical qualification. The inn is open four days a week, and the island is also available for day use and special events. The new keepers will start in mid-April 2019, allowing two weeks for training.”
