What’s the role all about?
At Channel 4’s Audience Technology and Insight department, we’re looking for technical analysts to deeply mine the data we will collect on our viewers. Things are changing here, with a shift from relational databases and backward looking analytics to big data platforms with real time and predictive analytics. Applying analytics in a broadcast industry has never been done before, so it’s a significant step for us. But as well as making a major investment in technology, we’re investing in talented people too. People who have the skills and technical training, but possibly lack the practical industry experience.
