Job description

Job Introduction
BBC iPlayer & BBC Sounds are core to moving the BBC to an IP distributed world. They are fundamental to delivering the best watch and listen experiences to our UK audience.

As both products become ever more personalised and tailored to each user's needs, understanding user behaviour is ever more crucial for their success. Whilst we started this journey a while ago, we have a new team that is focused on driving a truly data led culture, impacting how both products evolve. A big part of this, is to create a greater awareness within all the different product development teams on how data is used and can be used.

Role Responsibility
  • Lead the "Data Force" team across both BBC iPlayer & BBC Sounds, working with peers in Product, Architecture & others
  • Help to foster a Data Driven Culture across all product development teams and all different platforms, championing this across the department
  • Stakeholder management and stakeholder engagement to drive change

Are you the right candidate?
  • Expertise with data collection, data processing and use of audience data
  • Experience building data pipelines and implementing analytics models
  • Experience using experimentation to drive product changes and gain audience insights
  • A real sense of cross discipline working and collaboration
  • Technologies: experience working with managed cloud services (e.g. AWS Kinesis, Athena, Google BigQuery), and streaming / big data processing technologies (e.g Spark, Flink, Samza)
  • Experience with multiple programming languages such as python and Scala
