What are Guardians?

Guardians are chosen Rooster Teeth Community members who dedicate their time and skills to help make RTX an amazing experience for everyone. Guardians provide support for attendees, special guests, Rooster Teeth cast/crew, and each other. Guardians are the customer service and crisis management front line of RTX. Guardians represent RTX, Rooster Teeth, and the RT Community. The RT Community is pretty incredible and we aim to bring the best (and those aspiring to be the best) community representatives into our Guardian ranks.

What makes a Guardian?

We look for applicants willing to do tasks assigned, sporting positive attitudes, patience, strong customer service skills, and a genuine desire to make the RTX experience awesome for everyone. We strive to make the show a safe place for all fans. Successful Guardians must be comfortable in crowds/crowded spaces. They must be able to deal with emergencies with a cool head. They must be willing to work with their team. We have a variety of jobs that range from super exciting to oddly mundane, but all jobs/tasks are important and necessary. We expect everyone to put their full effort into every task. Guardians must be 18+.

Submission Period

The Guardian application submission period for 2016 is now closed. We will have the application enrollment for 2017 Guardians open at the end of this year.
