I’ve been writing a lot about job titles lately (see Ongig’s Job Titles: The Definitive Guide). As part of that journey, I’ve run across some funny job titles. There are numerous creative job titles for every department and position.

I thought I’d put these cool job titles here into one list.

Warning: there are some weird job titles here. Some might be fake (but still funny). I’ve done my best to list these witty job titles by department/position.

Enjoy!
