Technical Project Manager

The way we watch TV is changing!

Simplestream is an award-winning provider of video streaming solutions to some of the largest players in the media industry. We build Next Generation TV services for broadcasters, sports federations and media companies using our in-house video workflow, service layer and app framework.

Our clients include UKTV, Sony, A+E Networks, AMC, Channel 4 and QVC to name a few. They rely on us to stream over 200 live TV channels and millions of on-demand programmes worldwide.

We are a well-funded and growing business with a start-up mentality seeking to hire the best talent.

THE ROLE

This is an exciting opportunity for someone that’s highly self-motivated, technically capable and confident in communicating with a broad range of roles within the media industry. You will work as part of the growing Client Services team and help to ensure we deliver the highest possible level of client satisfaction. You will be client-facing and focus on delivering multiple projects on time, on quality and on spec. For each assigned project, you will be the linchpin between clients and the internal project teams, ensuring that everyone is aware of the requirements and the deadlines whilst providing the clients with visibility on progress.

The ideal candidate must be able to demonstrate proven experience and competency in four key areas:

  1. Driving tasks. You must have the drive, determination, tenacity and structured approach to drive tasks to completion. You will have support from relevant disciplines across the business, but ultimate responsibility for delivery lies with you.
  2. Relationship management. Establishing and continually strengthening close and trusted working relationships will be key to your success in the role. This applies principally to clients, but also internally and with relevant third parties.
  3. Technical aptitude. Just about everything we do as a business has a technical element and, while we have plenty of excellent experts to cover the detail, you must posses – or have the desire and capability to acquire – a good high-level understanding of these technical aspects.
  4. Effective communication. It should go without saying, but you must be confident, highly articulate and thorough in both written and verbal communication (in English) with all stakeholders.

While the role will be notionally office-based – with the flexibility to work from home around 3 days a week – there may be occasional need for travel, both within the UK and possibly internationally.
