Mad Systems is an audiovisual system designer and integrator specializing in interactive exhibits for museums, theme parks, visitor centers and brands. Our projects often include electromechanical work.
We are seeking a hard-working, creative and experienced technician with no less than 5 years experience (preferably 10) in AV doing build and installation work. Good AV, computer, and IT skills and knowledge are required. We’re looking for the kind of person who has no trouble setting an IP address and knows how to get a computer onto a network. Duties will include metalworking, woodworking, and wiring electronics. Our technicians work solo at times, and at other times as part of a strong team and/or in tandem with our lead technician. Efficiency, safety, and accuracy are critical so prior experience in workshops and similar environments is essential.
We are looking for someone who can represent our company in a professional manner, as they will interact with our partners and clients. Our clients are creative with varying needs, so we never tackle the same challenge twice. We are looking for someone who is creative, adaptable, collaborative, able to think on their feet, and interested in bringing concepts into reality. On top of that, someone with a capacity and interest in learning-- they soak up whatever job-specific knowledge we’d drench them with. Every member of our team wears many hats, and enjoys doing so. We are looking for the person who will help embrace that ongoing change and relish the creation of unusual solutions.
Our work is project-based, with the majority of work being completed on a regular full time schedule M-F from 7am-3:30pm at our headquarters in Orange, CA. Our installs may require out-of-town travel and can involve long periods away from home, and also long days on site. Applicants must be flexible and willing to work overtime as needed.
