Why you should join us...

We connect with millions of people every day, make content they can't get enough of and reflect and shape the world we live in... and we do all this through the power of creativity.

At ITV, we're well on our way to becoming a digital first business. We're transforming the way we work so that tech is at the heart of everything we do. It's what our More Than TV strategy is all about. And none of it would be possible without our data - and the people behind it. 

Business Area Overview...

Our data team is responsible for helping us realise the value of data. That could mean anything from upskilling and training our people, to increasing our revenue through experimentation and personalisation. The list is truly endless.

Our Innovation strand consists of Data Scientists, Operational Researchers and Behavioural Scientists. As a mix of number crunchers and behavioural experts, they put their curiosity to work in influencing the business.

As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, anyone who joins the team will have the opportunity to work on genuinely groundbreaking innovations so that we can  continue to blend science into a creative business.

This role entails...

Sitting in the Data Innovation function, we have an opportunity for a Technical Lead  to join our Data Product Team and be instrumental in delivering our data strategy.  You'll be working in a technically innovative environment designing highly scalable and distributed data pipelines. 

Key responsibilities:

  • Drive the teams' technical roadmap collaborating closely with our strategy leads and translating stories into code.

  • Help teams design systems and pipelines that keep up with ITV's large datasets

  • Ensure ownership from owning services to monitoring, maintenance and incidents management 

  • Supporting a strong engineering culture, orientated on technical innovation, and professional development

  • Ensuring your team follows our engineering practices, by leading from the front

Minimum Criteria:

  • Experience building high-traffic systems and pipelines 

  • Expert knowledge of high level programming languages (scala, python, java...) 

  • Strong experience with Spark and ETL pipelines

  • Strong knowledge of systems design within a cloud environment (in particular AWS) 

ITV strongly encourages applications for this role from candidates with a disability and as a Disability Confident Leader, we have committed to interview all candidates with a disability whose application meets the minimum criteria for the role. (minimum criteria above)

What we can offer:

We offer a competitive salary and 5 weeks' holiday on top of public holidays, plus the option to buy more. Other benefits include annual bonus plan, life assurance cover, and interest-free season-ticket loans, an opportunity to buy ITV shares, and the chance to join pension, health insurance, childcare vouchers and cycle to work schemes. 

We want to be the most flexible employer in Media. We offer Smart working and we will support you and provide you the right environment and work/ life balance.

We reach millions of people everyday, that's why having diverse talents and being an organisation where colleagues feel included is crucial to us. We have various networks who celebrate and support our colleagues. We try to embed an inclusive mindset in everything we do. 

We're happy to discuss any support/personalisation you may need during our application process as part of our reasonable adjustments approach. So we encourage you to get in touch with us if you require anything.

* There may be a few exceptions where we are not able to take all eligible candidates to the next stage due to the volume of applications
