Become a Brainstormer Quizmaster or Co-Host!

UPDATE JUNE 29, 2018: We are hiring hosts for SAN FRANCISCO, SAN JOSE/SOUTH BAY, and NORTH BAY (MARIN, CA). Join our team and APPLY TODAY!

Brainstormer is building on our philosophy of ‘Educating America ... one bar at a time!’

Do you love trivia and enjoy hamming it up over a microphone? Become a Brainstormer host!

As a host, you are both the quizmaster and an ambassador for Brainstormer. A Brainstormer host shows up week after week balancing professionalism with a fun, enthusiastic attitude for quizzing and interacting with quizzers. A host understands that a regular quizzer is a regular customer and naturally teams up with their venue and its staff to promote its business and make the best quiz night possible. Your outgoing and friendly demeanor excites regulars and encourages new quizzers to return. You are also dedicated to the event’s success and have no problem familiarizing yourself with the evening’s quiz, as well as making sure your PA system is top-notch before your event.

Ambitious hosts can also seek out new venues to introduce Brainstormer quiz nights and increase their ‘mic’ time during the week.

Candidates must be social media savvy and use sites including Facebook and Twitter to promote the event. Use of these marketing tools will foster interaction between Brainstormer, the venue, and the quiz participants, and help build a successful quiz night!

  • Experience speaking in front of an audience of up to 100 people with a microphone personality (essential)
  • Played Brainstormer before and are acutely aware of our format (essential)
  • Own laptop computer (essential)
  • Own eclectic song library (essential)
