Call for Applications: Virtual Events Technician

Hosted by National Arts Centre (NAC)

The Digital Experiences + Design team is responsible for the complete design and development lifecycle of the NAC’s web-based products and services, audio/video broadcast studio, and digital media installations, including the Kipnes Lantern.   The Digital Experiences + Design Team at the NAC has grown into a strong team, with expertise in user experience design, content strategy, software development and analysis, interaction and content design, and audio and video production. As our projects grow in scale, so must our team.   We are looking for a charismatic and experienced Virtual Events Technician to play a key role in delivering an exceptional experience that connects remote participants and audiences. This role operates at the intersection of technical know-how and superior customer experience. Professional communication, attention to detail and the ability to multitask, all while remaining calm under pressure, are pre-requisites to success.   From a theatre production perspective, consider this role a blend of House Manager and Stage Manager for virtual events. You will be routinely interacting with virtual participants, artists and audiences while communicating logistical “housekeeping” reminders and troubleshooting technical issues. Bilingualism and professionalism are essential.

The incumbent may be required to work remotely either full-time or in a hybrid fashion until the end of the pandemic. All necessary working tools needed to fulfill the duties and responsibilities of this position will be provided to the employee for this purpose.

Accessibility

It is the National Arts Centre’s goal to be a more welcoming, inclusive, accessible, and diverse organization for all Canadians. We believe that the basis of this inclusivity requires a socially and culturally diverse workforce and, therefore, we actively seek to recruit candidates who identify as women, Indigenous, Black, Persons of Colour (IBPoC), persons from the LGBTQ2+ community and persons with disabilities. We encourage you to self-identify in the recruitment process.

The National Arts Centre raised its curtains for the first time in 1969. A bilingual, multi-disciplinary home for Canada’s most creative artists, the NAC strives to be artistically adventurous in each of its programming streams — the NAC Orchestra, Dance, English Theatre, French Theatre, Indigenous Theatre and NAC Presents. The Centre’s national role is reflected in its motto: “Canada is our Stage.” The NAC collaborates with artists and arts organizations across the country, acts as a catalyst for performance; invests in ambitious new works by artists and arts organizations nation-wide; and nurtures the next generation of audiences and artists from across Canada. Situated on the unceded territory of the Algonquin Anishinabe nation, the NAC is accessible and welcoming to all, and offers a variety of free programming and events.
