About the job
You are a dynamic, organized, flexible, and enthusiastic entertainment professional. And you’re based in the Bay Area. If all that’s true, you might have what it takes to join America’s greatest live quizmaster team: The hosts of The Big Quiz Thing, the country’s premier providers of private and corporate trivia game shows. We’re seeking a new host to add their own brand of magic to our high-level team-building events, both virtually and in-person in the San Francisco region (and perhaps beyond; as the world reopens, there will be plenty of opportunities for travel).
The ideal candidate will have…
— Experience hosting and/or producing corporate events: We’re all about keeping big shots laughing and smiling, so it helps to be comfortable in their world.
— An organized, responsible, and detail-oriented approach to show business: Our clients expect a professional event, so we demand professionalism from our hosts.
— Strong stage presence and improv skills: More than a bar-trivia question reader, our hosts are true performers. And they know how to keep things moving when challenges creep in.
— A flexible schedule: The commitment is intermittent, with plenty of room to grow. And we’ll work with you to get the most out of your hosting experience.
— Basic but dependable tech supplies: A reliable laptop and a solid at-home virtual-events setup (at least 200 Mbps down/20 Mbps up Internet, plus a proper microphone and lighting). Tech support is provided.
Interest in and knowledge of trivia and puzzles is a plus, but not required. Special consideration will be given to female and/or POC candidates. Please note that all candidates must provide proof of COVID vaccination.
Payment is a percentage of the booking fees for each event you host—expect at least $200 (plus paid training). Contact us hiring[at]bigquizthing.com with your résumé, cover letter, and any video clips of you in action, if possible. And you can learn more about the Big Quiz Thing at www.bigquizthing.com.
