- a proactive sensibility and comfort being autonomous
- experience with theatre lighting and sound equipment
- basic experience with Microsoft Office (particularly Excel) and Google Workplace

While Infinithéâtre is primarily an English-language theatre company, fluency in French, both written and spoken, is an asset. Diversity and inclusion is a priority for Infinithéâtre, and we look forward to hearing from a wide range of candidates.
