What's your new role about?

If you are a Post Production Engineer, Workflow Engineer or Transcode Specialist looking to build skills and experience across broadcast, newsroom and OTT workflows then joining DAZN's Central Engineering team could be a great move for you and your Broadcast Media career!

As part of DAZN's dynamic, growing Central Engineering team, you will play a key role in the development of media file workflow systems. This department is responsible for designing technologies and solutions that underpin our post production file based video and audio workflows from ingest through to global distribution, along with the support and maintenance of automated file-based platforms which cover most audio/video related parts of the chain from signal acquisition through to edit and on-demand delivery.

You will fit in well with your excellent knowledge of orchestration, workflow engines, transcode and file-based distribution systems and your experience with audio and video codecs and formats will be really useful. Using your solid experience with MAM platforms and post production automated workflows, you'll act as a fantastic senior technical member of the team.

You’ll use Ruby alongside Aspera, and any skills in Bash/Shell, XML, and Json would be great! Python & C# would be a bonus too, but these are things you can pick up along the way. If you happen to have any experience in scripting and API integration, then even better!

No doubt you share our team's passion for Broadcast and media technology, so if this sounds like a challenge you would love to get stuck into then we would love to hear from you!
