As Discovery Communications’ portfolio continues to grow – around the world and across platforms – the Global Technology & Operations team is building media technology and IT systems that meet the world class standard for which Discovery is known. GT&O builds, implements and maintains the business systems and technology that are critical for delivering Discovery’s products, while articulating the long-term technology strategy that will enable Discovery’s growing pay-TV, digital terrestrial, free-to-air and online services to reach more audiences on more platforms.
From Amsterdam to Singapore and from satellite and broadcast operations to SAP, we are driving Discovery forward on the leading edge of technology.
The Global Data Analytics team enables Discovery Communications to turn data into action. Using big data platforms, data warehousing and business intelligence technology, audience data, advanced analytics, data science, visualization, and self-service analytics, this team supports company efforts to increase revenue, drive ratings, and enhance consumer engagement.
The Manager of Data Strategy & Analytics will work as both a strategic business partner and technical resource lead for internal stakeholders, collaborating to inform key business decisions and develop high-profile data solutions.
This person will direct analytical projects from the beginning stages of requirements gathering all the way through final product delivery. Thus, this role will require a strong analytical leader who is comfortable completing and overseeing technical work (such as writing and reviewing code) but who can also clearly communicate to senior stakeholders. He or she will be expected to present findings and be an influencer of the direction of data analytics throughout the company.
The Manager will supervise the connection and analysis of large, disparate data sets from a variety of sources in order to better understand viewers, increase consumer engagement, optimize ad placement, and improve marketing. This person will need both creativity and attention to detail as they envision and build data solutions that change the face of the TV industry.
