How to limit amount of time spent on ImagePullBackOff

I am running a batchv1/job with a pod that references an invalid image repository and/or tag. The pod spends a significant amount of time in a PodScheduled=true and Ready=false state, constantly trying to fetch the image with a back off algorithm:

I would like to limit the number of retries and/or limit the amount of time the container can remain in this state. I want this, because I want my Job to finish fast if such an error occurs.

Is that possible?

My JobSpec is written for the go-client and looks like this:

if _, err := t.d.KubernetesClient().BatchV1().Jobs(job.Namespace).Create(&batchv1.Job{
	ObjectMeta: metav1.ObjectMeta{
		Name:      job.ID,
		Namespace: job.Namespace,
		Labels: map[string]string{
			kindName:         "tenant_runner",
			labelTenantID:    tenant.ID,
			labelTenantSlug:  tenant.Slug,
			labelTenantJobID: job.ID,
	Spec: batchv1.JobSpec{
		// No parallelism!!
		Parallelism: pointerx.Int32(1),

		// Run the job to completion only once!
		Completions: pointerx.Int32(1),

		// Retry running the job at most 5 times.
		BackoffLimit: pointerx.Int32(t.JobBackoffLimit),

		// This cleans up the jobs after a day when finished.
		TTLSecondsAfterFinished: pointerx.Int32(int32((time.Hour * 24).Seconds())),

		Template: v1.PodTemplateSpec{
			Spec: v1.PodSpec{
				// This needs to be never because the job controller will restart this pod!
				RestartPolicy: v1.RestartPolicyNever,

				ActiveDeadlineSeconds: pointerx.Int64(int64((t.podExecutionTimeout).Seconds())),
				ServiceAccountName: t.c.TenantExecutorServiceAccount(),

				Containers: []v1.Container{
						// ImagePullPolicy must be PullIfNotPresent or kind will fail integration tests as it will try to fetch the image from remote.
						// see:
						// It's also very important to have something predictable here (e.g. v1.0)
						ImagePullPolicy: v1.PullIfNotPresent,
						Name:            job.ID,
						Image:           t.c.TenantExecutorImage(),
						Command:         []string{"backoffice"},
						Args:            args,
						Env:             []v1.EnvVar{{Name: "LOG_LEVEL", Value: "trace"}, {Name: TenantJSONEnv, Value: encodedTenant}},

Kubernetes set a timeout limit on image pulls
