Digital and Technology Solutions – Software Engineer (Global)
This is an opportunity to earn a salary while embarking on a career in media and technology. The ‘Degree Apprenticeship Program’ will allow participants to complete an apprenticeship within Global Media & Entertainment Technology division whilst studying for a degree at Queen Mary University of London. Apprentices will work at Global three days a week during term time, and five days a week during university holidays. After the four-year program, participants will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Digital and Software Solutions, with the potential opportunity of a full-time position with Global Media and Entertainment.
Whilst we make waves throughout the Capital from our HQ in Leicester Square, the Technology department boasts twenty regional offices all programmed to ensure the Smooth running of Global from its core. Technology is at the Heart of the business with a dedicated team ranging from Developers & Engineers to Data Analysts. The ideal candidate will have a passion for new technology, whether that be writing software, analysing data, working with social media or using new technology such as machine learning to solve problems. As the old saying goes ‘no two days will be the same,’ in the morning you could be working with our Content Tech team writing code for our Global app and by the afternoon find yourself in the studio repairing tech! You’ll work on a rotational basis to ensure you are exposed to all aspects of the department but still have the opportunity to get stuck into one of our many exciting projects to make your mark.
You should be someone that is not afraid to ask questions and thrives on new challenges saying ‘yes’ whenever you see opportunity. You will demonstrate great communication skills as well as the ability to think creatively and always see the bigger picture. You will work well independently and in teams, care about the quality of your work, and most importantly have an appetite to learn in a fast-paced environment that embraces agile development, cloud computing, open source and data analytics.
We are passionate about what we do, working to a Gold standard, never taking second best and constantly striving to answer the question ‘how can I make that better?’ If you ask yourself the same thing, find yourself to be straight-talking and sincere, are as obsessed about detail as we are and have boundless enthusiasm and dedication then this might just be the place for you.
