Virtual Meeting/Broadcast/AV Production Technician, Brella Productions – Evanston, IL (remote available)

Who We Are:

Started almost three decades ago, Brella was not only one of the first digital

production companies, but one that embraced a different philosophy.

With production at our center, we hired team members accomplished in key skills

—masters of their chosen areas—then we took it one step further. We hired people

with deep curiosity and a penchant for helping and supporting others. Today, this

added “DNA” has made Brella a powerhouse of artists, programmers, organizers,

and thinkers, all cross-trained to form one cohesive, collaborative whole. This

structure allows us to solve strategic challenges, pioneer new solutions, and advise

our clients on the clear paths to solutions and advancement

The result is a communication and learning organization that understands and

supports the complex needs of our mostly Fortune 500 clients. From global

pharmaceutical firms, medical device makers, and educational publishers to retail,

heavy machinery, and industrial manufacturers, it’s communications made easy,

under the umbrella of exceptional customer service.
