Job Description

We have a brand new permanent job available for a Senior Broadcast Support Engineer to join a leading media technology solutions provider, as part of an exciting expansion strategy. This vacancy can be based in either London or the Midlands, dependent on your location. 

As a Senior Broadcast Support Engineer, you will provide third line technical support to post production systems and workflows (Avid, Adobe and Apple FCP), remote production solutions, shared storage systems & infrastructure and cloud technology, ensuring the highest level of customer satisfaction at all times. 

You will assist and supervise other members of the team with more complex technical issues, acting as the absolute escalation point for first and second line engineers. You will also be responsible for delivering proactive, high level technical support to customers, including system health checks. 

This position will work as part of an on-call rota (1 week in every 6 weeks), providing out of hours support from 10.00am to 8.00pm covering weekdays and weekends. 
Candidates will have a proven technical background within the broadcast or post production industry, providing engineering support across editing platforms (ideally Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro), storage systems (such as Quantum, Editshare, Avid, Spectra Logic) and remote production technology.
You will have in-depth knowledge of video codecs, LTO backup, archive technology and asset management systems, for example Avid Interplay.

Avid ACSR accreditation is highly desirable.
This is a fantastic opportunity to take the next step in your career, work with cutting edge technologies and join an industry leader at an exciting time of growth.      
If you feel this is the right role for you and if you are fully eligible to live and work in the UK without the need for visa sponsorship, then please apply now for immediate consideration.
