Business Area Overview:

Sitting within the heart of our Media and Entertainment division, Audiences is the home of viewer insights at ITV, and the single source of truth for content performance across our broadcast and on-demand businesses. Audience’s Content & Performance Analytics team is responsible for all official analytics solutions relating to delivery of M&E KPIs and the performance of ITV’s programmes.

Reporting to the Senior Manager - Content & Performance Analytics, you will be fully embedded within our data roadmap, working with clients, analysts and data engineers to manage the accuracy, delivery and ongoing maintenance of performance datasets across both our Broadcast and Streaming businesses, providing a single source of truth to the Media & Entertainment division. With strong coding skills, experience writing complex pipelines, the ability to create valuable self-serve products and proven experience working in an agile scrum-based environment, you will be the backbone to our data processes, applying engineering best practices to analytics code wherever possible and documenting everything along the way.

  • Creating and maintaining complex analytics pipelines using ETL tools such as Matillion or orchestration tools such as Apache Airflow to model accurate, well-maintained datasets for reporting and analysis across both our Broadcast and Streaming businesses
  • Ensuring data quality, data security, data governance and wider Analytics Engineering standards remain high
  • Working with colleagues across Audiences to deliver best-in-class measurement and metrics across all ITV platforms and data-sets
