Brompton Technology is a specialist manufacturer of video processing products for live events. Our Tessera system is the industry-leading processing solution for LED video walls, used for high-profile events ranging from the Academy Awards to tours by bands like U2 and Ed Sheeran and now in Virtual Productions.
Our company is close-knit and highly-motivated with a keen interest in the products it creates. You should be similarly interested in the work involved, and be able to adapt to changing priorities as we bring original and ground-breaking products to market. The company’s close ties to the entertainment industry bring a variety of benefits and we offer a very friendly, flexible and supportive working environment.
Brompton Technology has a great opportunity for a Technical Support Specialist. You should have confident communication skills and enjoy working with people. Strong electronic and IT-based technical skills are important, and ideally experience helping to solve problems over the telephone or in written messages. Your verbal and written communication skills will need to be excellent. Each interaction you have with a client helps to build long-term working relationships. You will need to stay calm and positive under pressure, as our customers work on the world’s largest and most high-profile shows. Training on Brompton products will be provided, but a strong underlying technical understanding is necessary. Experience in a technical role within the AV industry is not essential, particularly if you have a keen amateur interest in the field of AV and video, but it would be a positive.
