A leading broadcast organisation has an excellent opportunity available for a Senior Post Production Engineer to join its team on a permanent basis.
As Senior Post Production Engineer, you will be responsible for providing third line technical support to post production systems and workflows, including Avid Media Composer, ISIS and Interplay, 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 an escalation point for first and second line engineers and deputising for the Technology Manager in their absence.
A very large percentage of the role will be projects focused and you will be responsible for specifying and designing post systems, integrating different technologies either at the request of a client or to introduce additional functionalities or efficiencies. You will also take responsibility for project delivery, ensuring projects are completed on time, within budget, reliably tested and well documented.
Candidates will have a proven technical background within the broadcast industry, providing both support and design/project engineering across editing platforms (ideally Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Flame and ProTools). You will have in-depth knowledge of video fundamentals covering: SD, HD, UDH, routing and distribution processing, and have experience of asset management systems, for example Avid Interplay, Tedial, VizRT Ardome or Evertz Mediator. In addition, experience of auto QC systems such as Harding, Aurora or Vidcheck, would be beneficial.
This position requires solid IT skills covering Windows, Mac OS and Linux and networking (routing, switching, security / firewalls, ACLs). Any additional experience of Active Directory, LDAP, SNMP, SQL PHP, Apache, SOAP or REST would be highly advantageous.
This is a fantastic opportunity to take the next step in your career, working with cutting edge technologies in a modern broadcasting environment.
