Ideastream Public Media, a Cleveland-based multiple media organization and home to Ohio’s largest NPR, PBS and classical radio stations, continues to expand its news and information, arts and entertainment, classical and education services to 22 counties in Northeast Ohio. As part of that expansion, Ideastream seeks an organized and technical Senior Engineer to maintain its on-air television equipment to assure quality technical operation and performance.


Reporting to the Director of Engineering, the Senior Engineer is responsible for repairing, maintaining, and calibrating broadcast equipment. In this role, you will assist with installation and routine maintenance of broadcast equipment and systems, implement approved maintenance plans and procedures for equipment recommended by manufacturers, and maintain standard operating procedures. You will also be involved in the operation, maintenance, and installation of transmitter site equipment and systems including transmitters, STL equipment, and remote-control devices.


Qualified candidates will demonstrate general knowledge of FCC rules and regulations, operate a broad range of video and audio equipment, automation systems, routing systems, power distribution, and related technologies. A two-year technical degree and five years of broadcast television experience is preferred, though an equivalent of experience in related fields and education will be considered. The salary range for this position is $65,000—$85,000 and is commensurate with experience. A relocation stipend will be part of the benefit and compensation package, where applicable. We offer a rich benefits program including medical coverage, a 403(b) plan with an employer match, paid time off, a parking subsidy, a lunch delivery service subsidy, and much more.
