Address: Toronto, ON
$35,000 – $50,000 a year
If you aren’t familiar with a hands-on approach to AV setups for recording audio, video and livestreams then don’t apply. We expect this role to involve learning and experimentation but are looking for people with personal experience hacking AV solutions to capture and create killer content, not people who want to learn something entirely new etc…
We expect all applicants to submit a personal letter to us explaining why you think this role is important for you and why you would love to work with us. Without this we won’t consider you at all.
Also, if you have links to a Vimeo/Youtube portfolio of content, or photos from events you’ve supported in the past please include them when you apply.
Simply put, StartWell (https://startwell.co) is Toronto’s happiest place for meetings, events and offices. Our main campus on King Street West comprises a wealth of spaces designed to naturally enable introspection and focused work as well as collaborative creation, learning and social network development.
We have 9,000 sqft of private offices on campus, with resident teams ranging in size from 2 people to 50 people, plus members who may not have private offices – working in common space which includes bookable meeting rooms, lounges, call booths and hot desk areas as well as our event venue (which is a workspace when not booked for private events.)
Our member based community usually has between 100-400 people on campus per day and our team is small (less than 5 people work for StartWell and are on the floor at once) so its important for everyone working for StartWell to be comfortable around others but be a self-starter who can work on their own and focus without micro-management and over-instruction.
This is a new position that combines front-of-house tasks at Reception (logging mail, directing guests of members to rooms for meetings and even whipping up cappuccinos if you’re skilled as a barista – let us know!) with facilitating media capture and streaming at events and meetings as well as for publication in our online magazine (https://startwell.co/community)
The ideal person for this Role is a self-starter who knows how to focus on tasks but maintains a calm and sociable demeanour.
You’ll be supporting tech for presentations in meeting rooms and our podcast studio (https://startwell.co/meetings/podcasting-studio/) that includes USB Webcams, USB microphones, VOIP-connected Polycom conference phones and more.
For events on campus, your role will include setting up and managing audio and visual connections for live presentations, online webinar broadcasts and content recording. You should be comfortable and excited by reconfiguring setups for the best quality of customer experience on stage and in audience, and by the possibility of capturing the in-room experience to share online.
For our smaller meetings and large-room events, you may find yourself teaching members and guests how to use our technology and setup for the best AV experience on Zoom or Google Meet or podcast recording as well as supporting things when troubleshooting is required.
Content – Capture and Editing
Ideally you’re excited by also capturing our member community’s stories and will work with the CEO and others on our small team to record film testimonials (like these: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNSlT8MChO5Jl-ZAocze00bU5zlDvqb3U) as well as interviews (like these: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNSlT8MChO5LR7ZrWq-m-VF_8c6KczPr6) and event recap footage (like this: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLNSlT8MChO5LWy-weHtdcbY4h4QxI_9B_)
