Technician job at our studio.

    Hi there,
    Not sure if this is the right etiquette, but anyway, here goes.
    We're looking for someone to join our studio as a technician.
    Having done some projects in Max before, it feels like similar skills and interests are needed for what we are doing.
    We previously put this job up on some other sites, but we've just got loads of CV's from people who want to be editors and directors. We want someone who can tame our temperamental video network, organise our data, and then get on with helping us sort out big-scale visuals projects.
    I've got to emphasise that this is a technical role. We're looking for someone who is really into the nuts and bolts of making complex visual and lighting systems work like magic.
    Here's the description. Many apologies to the list if this feels like inappropriate use...
