Job Description

An award winning, industry leader of a broadcast solutions company are looking for a Media Systems Engineer to join their team in delivering bespoke solutions to broadcast clients and major production companies around the world. 

As Media Systems Engineer, you will work with clients to design, build and deliver bespoke solutions for video servers, storage systems and non-linear edit suites in a range of settings including fixed rigs on location, studios and live outside broadcast productions. You will monitor and optimise the performance of all systems and provide 1st line support both remotely and on-site, ensuring technical faults are resolved in an efficient manner. You will also be aware of the latest technologies and evaluate new potential software and hardware to be used.

As well as taking on engineering duties, you will create and document new media workflows and produce guides for new users as well as providing training to operators, media managers and production staff through the use of each system and providing them with operational scenarios. 

To be successful in this role, candidates should have a technical background with experience of post-production systems such as Avid or Adobe Premiere and be able to demonstrate knowledge of Windows, macOS and Linux operating systems alongside networking principles.

Familiarity of EVS broadcast equipment, storage systems and MAM would be advantageous, as would knowledge in cloud computing or virtual machines.

This position offers the exciting opportunity to travel internationally and so candidates must be willing and flexible to be away for long periods of time and hold a valid UK driving license.
