Posted Oct 17, 2018 - Requisition No. 71327
Bloomberg TV delivers business news, insights and analysis to more than 360 million homes worldwide - 24/7. We're looking for an experienced broadcast/IT engineer to join our EMEA engineering support team on a 6 month contract. You will have the opportunity to work within a busy environment based out of Bloomberg's RIBA Stirling Prize winning European headquarters, supporting EMEA TV production, as well as collaborating with our global engineering teams.
This is a shift-based role which will include night shifts, but is weighted towards day shifts.
The EMEA team is responsible for all aspects of the state-of-the-art broadcasting infrastructure, from cameras on the studio, to transmission playout to uplink sites & third parties, and everything in between.
As a shift engineer, you’ll need to be proactive and able to work independently in high pressure situations and as part of a team during busier production hours. You should possess the excellent troubleshooting skills that will enable you to quickly identify and repair a fault, and have a desire to learn more about new trends & technologies within the broadcasting industry.
Communication skills are also vital: Shift handovers and the sharing of knowledge within the engineering team, ensuring stakeholders within the wider TV team are informed on the latest developments, and working with other Bloomberg departments using the Bloomberg Terminal/ticketing systems are all key.
Some understanding of SQL & SQL Server would be a plus.
Apply if you think we're a good match and we'll get in touch with you to let you know next steps.
