    Aren’t you tired of your boss? As an independent contractor, you have the freedom to earn whenever you want, wherever you want.
    You can party whenever you want, meaning you are in control of how many events you want to service per week or per month -- and you can party practically anywhere. Working as a Hipstr Host is a great alternative to seasonal, temporary, and part-time work.
    Nope! You don't need any prior work experience. But if you are entrprenurially minded and have experience in the hospitality, restaurant, or event service industries, partying with Hipstr is a great way to earn money and will come very easily!
    We welcome former restaurant hosts, servers, bartenders, and DJs. Anyone who loves providing amazing experiences for customers. Drivers from other gig economy or commercial services such as Uber and Lyft who are more personable and people-oriented also find it’s a more exciting and effective way to earn by partying rather than spending hours behind the wheel.
    Hipstr Hosts come from all backgrounds and industries. What they all share is they can’t help but be the life of the party.
    What makes being a Hipstr Host exciting, is no two events are exactly the same. You may service anything from intimate birthday parties to grandiose weddings and corporate holiday events. That said, the process each time is the same. Once you receive an event opportunity, you'll see where it is and what you'll make, and can choose to accept or reject it. Once you accept, there are generally four steps, all of which are clearly outlined via email from the Hipstr Team:
  • Pick up the Equipment and Drive to the Venue
  • Setup the Equipment
  • Party Like a Rockstar
  • Pack up the Equipment and Head Home
  • hipstr
