Work at CBC/Radio-Canada
Behind the scenes, but ahead of the curve: help us develop the next-generation public broadcaster.
Created in 2015 to align, lighten and modernize infrastructure, the Technology and Infrastructure team is the backbone and the future-forward arm of CBC/Radio-Canada. We are the people that make stuff work. We make connections; between media content, systems, people and places. We are the space in between.
A place with purpose. CBC/Radio-Canada has always been a highly-regarded pioneer of media technology. Not just in Canada, but around the world. Today, we’re transforming ourselves from a conventional radio and television broadcaster into a modern digital media company. Technology is the driving force and we are the team making it happen.
CBC/Radio-Canada is looking for a hands-on Project Lead to join our Engineering team, to both lead and take part in projects focused on deploying broadcasting and IT technology. This is a full-time permanent position, and the successful incumbent will be based in Toronto, working primarily on local projects, with eventual and occasional travel to various other sites nationally. CBC/Radio-Canada operates one of the world’s leading technology infrastructures and one of the largest private networks, which distributes its content and services exclusively across the country. In this position, you will play an essential role in the design, optimization, implementation and project delivery, including updating, installing, configuring and testing equipment, software and systems. You will ensure the design and implementation of systems you supervise in accordance with CBC/Radio-Canada and industry best practices as well as current federal and provincial regulations.
What’s in it for you?
Challenges. We spend our days solving problems on an unbelievable scale. Media files are highly nuanced and incredibly complicated; updating, installing and supporting technologies that are organization-wide and that impact broadcasting content is a time-sensitive, complex technical feat. And that’s just the beginning. You will manage the end-to-end project implementation from proposal and procurement to design, implementation, testing and handover. Not to mention, you will be working with cutting-edge technology in data management, cloud migration, IP for broadcast, AI and security and reliability.
