What sort of silly made-up positions does your team have?

Tons of teams have weird and wacky positions! What are some of the highlights of your team?

I know that we for one have a new (self-nominated) sleep captain, whose job it is to make sure people aren’t on Slack at too late an hour.

Legit role - Coffee Runner.

Get yourself someone with a car and enough trust from the team to hold lots of money at any given time. Send them off to the closest Starbucks/Peet’s with a list of orders, a wad of dough, and maybe a partner. Keeps the rest of the team focused and happy about 40 minutes later.

Our head scout was called Scout God. He designed our scouting app and created a database for each event we attended that analyzed each team’s proficiency at different objectives. Towards the end of the events he also started to make predictions about match outcomes within 10 points. That was pretty cool. His Holiness earned his title.

In 2015, bumper captain. 2019, autonomous programmers :wink:

edit: I also forgot “pits bouncer” because that was actually a thing.

Not a position per say, but I jokingly made my own new subteam last year called the Kremer Subteam. It works like something out of 1984, if you are on the Subteam you’ve always been on the Subteam, and if you aren’t you never have been. I like to keep things draconian.

I may or may not have requisitioned special buttons.

We had one, who will remain nameless, that had the title of Washer Rookie. He still does, for that matter.
