  • Providing technical knowledge and expertise to support colleagues in delivering video projects
  • Keeping abreast of emerging technology and taking an active role in company purchasing decisions

Our standard working hours are 9-5:30 (including a 30 minute paid lunch break), but due to the nature of the entertainment industry, some overtime may be required.
