What's your new role about?

Want to be part of the exciting live action on DAZN's 24/7 global sports streaming platform? Then join the Bangor MCR Team at DAZN!
As a Senior MCR Engineer, you will work in a fast-paced live sports environment ensuring our live operations are uninterrupted and run smoothly. 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 working days, nights, weekends and public holidays on a shift basis along with the sports calendar. 
As a Senior Engineer you will be responsible for the day to day running of the MCR.  You will keep everything running smoothly and assist the more junior members of staff when needed.  You will train others in the team, so you will be expected to understand the workflows to a higher level than most.  Double checking routing and incident reports are par for the course and the ability to keep a cool head when incidents inevitably occur is a necessity. 
You will join a close-knit team that values the desire to learn over previous experience (though both are ideal).  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 include access to DAZN, 25 days’ annual leave (increasing by 3 days after 3 years), annual performance-related bonus, private medical insurance, life assurance, pension contributions up to 5%, family friendly community, free access for you and one other to our workplace mental health platform app (Unmind), learning and development resources and access to our internal speaker series and events.

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

  • Take responsibility of management of IP contribution circuits
  • Complete routing and switching of events based on internal booking system
  • Provide first line support for any issues that arise
  • Provide training and support to junior team members

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
  • Considerable experience working in a Broadcast MCR
  • Ability to work as a member of a close-knit team
  • 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 

Even better if you have:

  • Second language skills eg Spanish, German, Italian or Japanese
  • Experience within a sports broadcasting role
