What We’re Looking for:
We’re looking for someone who knows their way around the world of digital comedy content creation and distribution. You know what good digital comedy content looks like and how to find an audience for it. You have intermediate to advanced technical skills in video editing, and are at ease with a variety of software and media platforms. You can work remotely (from anywhere in Canada) and are comfortable collaborating with your teammates in the cloud. You have demonstrated your commitment to accessibility, equity, diversity and inclusion in the arts and digital media, and you’re open to learning and growing in this area. In this position, the only thing more important than a sense of humour and love of comedy is your ability to stay organized, hit deadlines and prioritize tasks.
The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival is actively seeking applications from Black, Indigenous and/or POC candidates to fill this role. Priority will be given to people from equity-seeking groups when selecting candidates for interviews.
The Toronto Sketch Comedy Festival welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
Apply by email ASAP and no later than January 11th. Send a resume and a note that tells us why you are the perfect fit for this opportunity.
