Events Sys Eng II (EP)



Posted on Friday, July 7, 2023


This hybrid production/system engineer role will be in charge of both the health and maintenance of the production systems as well as the operation of the production systems during events.
On the production engineer side, a successful candidate will have a strong background in onsite production support, being able to design, program and operate live events ranging from ballroom style meetings to concerts and special events. Candidates should have a diverse background as a live production engineer demonstrating deep systems knowledge, strong organizational and interpersonal skills, and the ability to keep calm, focused and confident in a production environment. A successful candidate will have an impeccable focus and drive to constantly improve the customer experience.
For the systems engineer piece, the candidate will manage large production overhaul and maintenance projects, both planned and unplanned. When troubleshooting, the System Engineer will evaluate the risks with efficiency to properly gauge the optimum solution and act on what can be solved immediately and determine what solutions need to be taken to management.
The System Engineer within Event Productions should have a strong background in technical problem solving skills to support the operational engineers when systemic problems arise, and proactively, when invention and efficiency can be implemented to solve problems before they occur. Production technologies require systematic backup systems so that a buffer is created where the team and client will have knowledge of an implemented backup plan, but the end customer (attendee) will hopefully never even know a problem occurred. This requires system engineers to have a deep understanding of their systems to quickly identify root cause and offer efficient solutions to maintain production stability.
Responsibilities include:
· Promptly, thoroughly, professionally communicate with team, customers, and business partners.
· Proactively engage with production team to pursue process improvements.
· Search out opportunities to help others improve skillsets and knowledge base.
