Blizzard Entertainment Broadcast team is seeking a creative and experienced Technical Producer. As the Technical Producer, you will be the technical expert on the producing team. This role focuses on the technical budget, logistics and labor, and will be the one the producing team leans on to make sure their ideas are technically feasible and technically supported.
The ideal candidate would be well organized and able to manage large budgets and crews. You should have a firm understanding of technical planning for large events/productions, and be well versed in everything from lighting, video and audio, to networking, PC hardware and game consoles.
