We expect great things of every member of our team, and believe this standard helps us deliver an extraordinary service that continually redefines TV.
Responsibilities :
  • Monitor live video streams and program schedules, and report on overall health of signal delivery

  • Monitor multiple live events concurrently, such as sports, award shows, etc. and confirm, or manually execute, program extensions as necessary
  • Ensure content blackouts compliance against contractual obligations and partner communications, via audits and/or manual implementation - update, verify, validate, and send blackout notifications to technical and programming contacts
  • Serve as technical support point of contact for broadcast related blackouts, extensions, rights management, and general questions during live events
  • Assist with maintaining the highest quality content metadata via content tagging, metadata corrections, etc.
  • Maintain Broadcast Operations mail account inbox, chat rooms, phone bridges, and other forms of communications: answer, file, forward information as necessary
  • Assist Operations staff in generating channel performance reporting for leadership, partners and customer support staff
  • Assist with User Acceptance Testing for all tools and workflow upgrades as related to the Broadcast Operations Center
  • Assist with ad hoc projects, filing, spreadsheet management, data entry, and other project-specific administrative activities as directed

Basic Qualifications :

  • Strong sports programming familiarity to help facilitate quick, informed decisions about sports content management (blackouts, extensions, metadata, etc.)
  • Strong multitasking ability, as you'll be managing multiple projects across multiple teams
  • Self-motivated - able to take ownership for a task and run with it with little to no oversight - this is especially important for this shift
  • Excellent technical acumen and computer skills, especially Google Docs and MS Office
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Experience with support ticketing systems (ServiceNow, JIRA, Zendesk. etc.)

Preferred Qualifications:
