BallerTV is a venture-backed startup that is building the world’s largest sports network from the ground up. Our mission is to connect families and communities everywhere through the unifying power of live sports. We are in a unique position with our live streaming tech, network of videographers and logistics foundation to deliver on this mission and own this lucrative youth sports media market.  Similar to the early days of ESPN, we are building a generational business that will forever change the landscape of sports broadcasting. We have a clear path to scale, and our Event Success Support Specialist will be mission-critical in helping us succeed.

Who You Are

Our ideal candidate will be a detail-oriented, empathetic, and energetic team player who’s ready to make the sporting events we broadcast a success by remotely supporting our on-site Operations Partners.  Our Event Success Support Specialist will be able help solve time-sensitive problems by leveraging knowledge of BallerTV’s technology, operational processes, and troubleshooting methods.

Responsibilities And Duties

A day in the life of an Event Success Support Specialist will involve handling phone calls & text messages, providing support and guidance, doing quality control checks on both our livestream video feeds and on-site setups, and tracking and recording data.

This position is currently a part-time role (less than 30 hours/week) with the majority of hours falling on the weekends when most of our sporting events take place.  There may be an opportunity to transition to a full-time role in the future depending on business need and individual performance.
