What's your new role about?

We are looking for an individual to join our MCR team based in Leeds.  You will need to be able to work in a challenging environment ensuring our live operations are uninterrupted and run smoothly in line with the terms of our SLA’s.  Our work is mission critical, we are on the front line of the company’s global content ingest, pulling in sporting content from across the globe for use on multiple platforms.  Our schedules follow global sport calendars, so this position requires the candidate to work days, nights, weekends and public holidays on a shift basis.  The ideal candidate will need to prove their ability to work in a busy broadcast environment.
 
You will join a close-knit team that values the desire to learn over previous experience (though both are ideal).  We regularly promote internally so this is a wonderful place to start in your DAZN career.  We are also proud that despite the workload, we try and keep a relatively relaxed atmosphere in the MCR.  There’s always someone at the kettle, ensuring you’re kept well hydrated during a busy yet fun filled shift in the MCR!
 
If the above seems like a good fit – we’d love to meet you for an interview.

Benefits will depend on your location but will include access to DAZN, an annual performance related bonus, family friendly community, free access for you and one other to our workplace mental health platform app (Unmind), learning and development resources, opportunity for flexible working and access to our internal speaker series and events.

As our new MCR Operator, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Management of IP contribution circuits.
  • Complete routing and switching of events based on internal booking system.
  • Providing first line support for any issues that arise. 

You’ll be set up for success if you have:

  • Ability to work in a high-pressure environment. 
  • Ability to work nights and weekends on a semi-regular basis. 
  • Basic understanding of broadcast procedures and processes. 
  • Ability to work as a member of a close-knit team. 

Even better if you have:

  • Knowledge of IP protocols and networking.
  • Knowledge of satellite delivery, decrypting and decoding.
  • Experience in use of broadcast equipment such as SA, IRDs, AV / RF routers etc.
  • Prior experience working within an MCR environment.
