POSITION OVERVIEW:

Audio/Visual technicians transport, install, operate, and troubleshoot audio, visual, and lighting equipment for Rooftop Films’ Summer Series outdoor screenings. Technicians work shows from start to finish, meeting at our offices in Gowanus, Brooklyn for load-out and transportation of equipment to the site for setup, concluding with load-in at the end of the night.

+ Comfortable working outdoors in varying weather conditions.
+ Adaptable to a flexible work schedule, including nights and weekends.
+ Ability to troubleshoot, problem solve, and remain flexible under pressure.
+ A valid driver’s license and clean driving record is strongly preferred, as is a willingness to drive cargo vans, 16′, and 21′ box trucks.
+ Extensive experience setting up speaker systems, running FOH/monitor mixes, operating digital mixing consoles or digital projectors, though not necessary, is a strong advantage over other applicants.
+ Willingness to play a fluid role as part of a small, tight-knit team, balancing professionalism and a great sense of humor.

Technicians can expect to work between 25 and 40 hours per week from mid-May through August, and excellent technicians may have the opportunity to work through the winter. Compensation ranges from $15-$20 per hour and is commensurate with experience.
