Behind the Scenes at Buzztime with Justin Cooper
At Buzztime, we have a wide array of interesting, fun and passionate employees that all play a significant role in perfecting our product and keeping our customers happy! We’d love to give you the chance to take a peek behind the scenes at who exactly these amazing people are.
Justin Cooper is the Vice President of Operations. However, throughout his 15-year career at Buzztime, he’s worn lots of hats! In his current role, Justin oversees several departments: Content, Operations (field & network) and Programming. Hailing from New Jersey, Justin is an avid athlete who enjoys soccer and basketball. For someone who hates running, he sure does run a lot. In fact, nearly every week he plays lunchtime basketball with several other Buzztime staff! His favorite place to visit is Las Vegas, where he can listen to Black Sabbath and Metallica poolside. When he’s not outside (or in the casino) he can be found watching cult shows like Spartacus, Battlestar Galactica and Arrested Development. He’s a dad to two adorable kids—and a goldendoodle named Stanley.
