A leading broadcast services company currently has a very exciting opportunity available for an Ingest Operator to join its London-based team on a permanent basis.

As an Ingest Operator, you will be responsible for ingesting and encoding all media assets on time and to the highest of standards, ensuring it is available for current schedules and prepped for the following shift.  You will also ensure all video on demand (VOD) content is packaged, encoded, encrypted and checked for technical integrity and assist senior members of staff in day-to-day operational matters which can include technical changes, engineering works, equipment failures and replacements.

You will also be actively involved in first-line fault diagnosis and have the responsibility to deploy redundant systems when failures occur, escalating issues when required.
