Full Time
A leading broadcast service provider is looking to recruit two experienced OTT Engineers to join their close-knit team based in London.

You will support a live streaming and VOD (video on demand) premium OTT platform which operates in a 24/7 broadcast environment, ensuring the seamless delivery of major events to a subscription based app accessed by viewers worldwide.

This will involve the swift resolution of all video encoding, origin service, networking, storage and OTT delivery support issues, maintenance of key OTT systems and services and producing workflow support documentation and root cause reports.

Candidates will have proven experience of working in a similar engineering capacity supporting OTT platforms, with strong knowledge of encoding / transcoding for broadcast and internet streaming, origin services, file-based video formats and workflows, digital rights management, storage systems and dynamic packaging services.

You will be familiar with live encoders such as Elemental, with any additional Unified Streaming Platform (USP) experience being advantageous. You will have strong knowledge of Linux operating systems, network engineering skills covering ethernet, routers, switches, hubs and TCP/IP and an understanding of multicast and IP video distribution.

Scripting skills such as Python would be highly beneficial.

This position will require you to work extensive unsociable hours including evenings and weekends, applicants must therefore be flexible to work, for example, two weekends in a row and 10-hour shifts.

This is an excellent opportunity to work within a cutting edge broadcast environment and support a global platform.

If you feel this is the right role for you and if you are fully eligible to live and work in the UK without restrictions, then please apply now for immediate consideration.
