UNO card game launches national search for chief UNO player, position comes with a paycheck

UNO is launching a nationwide search for its first-ever Chief Uno Player, who will be paid $4,444 a week to educate and battle challengers in New York City.

Are you a WILD card? You could be UNO’s first-ever chief player! Yes, that’s a real, albeit temporary, job. But how interesting will that look on a resume?

UNO, the card game of Draw 4s, Reverses, and Skips, is launching a nationwide search for its first-ever Chief Uno Player, who will be paid $4,444.44 a week for four weeks, for a total of $17,777.76 before taxes, starting on Sept. 13. In anticipation of its new card game, UNO Quatro, the company is hiring a person for the new role who will be based in New York City to play and teach UNO fans the ins-and-outs of the new Quatro game rules. 

Ray Adler, vice president and global head of games at UNO’s parent company Mattel, said that the company is always looking to create new ways to engage with fans. 

“With the nationwide search for the first-ever Chief UNO Player, we’re bringing in-person gameplay to fans in a way they’ve never experienced before,” Adler said. “We’re thrilled to offer a position to the ultimate UNO player to help introduce our brand-new game, UNO Quatro, to the world. Who wouldn’t want to spend their afternoons playing UNO – and best of all, getting paid while doing it?”

UNO Quatro is played by combining the traditional UNO strategy of matching colors or numbers with the Quatro challenge of getting “four-in-a-row.”

There are some house rules to be eligible to become the Chief Uno Player. You must be able to work in New York City for four weeks from Sept. 13-16, Sept. 20-23, Sept. 27-30, and Oct. 4-7, four times each week, for four hours a day from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.   The venue is located at The Seaport’s scenic Pier 17.

You must be 18 years old or older, a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, and based in the U.S. to apply.

The Chief Uno Player shan’t be shy. The individual must be comfortable with interviews and appearances, including livestreams, and help the company create and star in social content for UNO games. The chief will also be playing the UNO Quatro game with brand creators, and must be able to engage with strangers to teach them how to and play the game with them. 

In terms of brand exclusivity, the Chief Uno Player is required to have exclusivity with UNO during the entire activation period.

To apply, submit a TikTok video by Thursday, Aug. 10 introducing yourself and answer four questions: What’s your best memory playing UNO? What’s your best “Reverse Card” moment? Why shouldn’t we “SKIP” you as the Chief Uno Player? What’s your favorite version of UNO?
