Online Systems Engineer
We are currently looking for an online systems engineer to join a well-known, industry leading broadcaster in London who provide content to viewers on both linear television and VOD platforms.
Within this hands off technical consultancy role, you will be responsible for assisting the online engineering team in maintaining existing work as well as delivering projects for all the online services. You will manage relationships with 3rd party suppliers and ensure that targets and services are being delivered as agreed as well as collaborate with other internal stakeholders to ensure that projects are being delivered on time and to the standard that is expected. This role is working with non linear broadcast technologies and so knowledge around VOD and transcoding workflows (vantage, flip factory, carbon coder) is essential. You will have an understanding of adaptive bit rate, simulcasting and streaming formats (HLS, MPEG-DASH, SmoothStream, HDS) and knowledge around DRM technologies (fairplay, playready, widevine) would be ideal.
The ideal candidate will have experience working on projects and will be wanting to take a step into a more hands-off technical consultancy role. You will be diligent in the way you plan and organise your work and be able to work autonomously as well as in a team. You will have excellent written and communication skills, relationship management skills and feel confident in managing 3rd party suppliers and driving projects from start to finish. You will work to a high level of detail and be confident in your own knowledge around OTT and transcoding.
