 Job Description

 New for the 2021 season, the Somerset Patriots have upgraded their entire broadcast setup to meet the standards put forward by Major League Baseball and Minor League Baseball’s official streaming platform, MiLB.tv. This calls for the creation of four new positions needed to be filled: Technical Director, Replay Operator, Graphics Operator and Camera Operator(s).
The Patriots are looking for different tiers of employees to fill these positions. Those with professional experience will be given top priority, but the Patriots are also looking for college students and high school students that have an interest in learning more about sports broadcast production.
Compensation: Commensurate with experience
Time Frame/Work Schedule: (Early May 2021– Mid-September 2021): These are all gameday staffer positions that run through the course of the Somerset Patriots 2021 season.

College students and high school students are expected to have availability as their schedule allows throughout the spring and summer.
Employees will arrive at the ballpark 2.5 hours before the scheduled time of first pitch.

Game times will vary, but have generally started at either 6:35 pm or 7:05 pm most nights and 1:05 pm or 5:05 pm on Sundays.
