What to Expect

WorldStage serves a wide variety of clients, including those in film and television, theatrical and touring productions, fashion, and special events. The company specializes in sales, installation, and operation of live audio, video, and lighting. They serve as a leader in providing innovative solutions for convergence media. WorldStage supplies varied levels of service, from a full technology package for televised award programs, to atmosphere lighting for corporate parties. Among the most notable projects are NBC’s tree lighting ceremonies, Jay-Z at Radio City, Making the Band, Rip the Runway, and special installations for the Carnegie Museum of Art.

The corporate headquarters is located in Long Island City, and the company operates a 95,000-square-foot warehouse in Secaucus, New Jersey. This space provides ample room for the lighting, audio, video, and convergence shops, as well as room to continue growth. In addition, the organization occupies an 8,000-square-foot office that houses the finance, administrative staff, and sales personnel. West coast offices are located in Tustin, California. In all, just over 100 people are employed with the company, including design and operation specialists such as front of house engineers, lighting designers, projection designers, and lighting console operators. Entry-level positions exist for general labor technicians and warehouse staff, which are tasked with preparation, installation, and maintenance of equipment.

Experience and formal training in your desired field are required for consideration for employment with WorldStage. A college degree is preferred but not a standard requirement. Degrees in theatrical design, live show production, film production, digital video, or broadcasting are encouraged. All employees must be local to the California, New York, or New Jersey area, though contracts frequently require travel across the United States and internationally.
