Overview

Our Team
As Discovery Inc's 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.

Technicians supporting this role interact face-to-face with our business users and are expected to have a versatile skill set both technically and personally with the ability to stay focused and continually develop as an experienced and skilled technician. Technicians in this role will be expected to self-manage the workload in this area and balance priority issues by vetting risk and exposure.

11. Provide a seamless and professional experience in supporting remote and regional customers
12. Log into the Avaya Call Distribution System when necessary when overflow support is necessary
13. Uphold professional ticket management from the get-go for the benefit of the rest of the global support teams by ensuring all ticket types are logged, work logs comprehensively updated and then carefully manage routing to ensure resolution
14. Maintain on-going communication with customers, keeping them up-to-date with the progress of their tickets
15. Serve as a liaison between other support teams and the customer as required by working collaboratively across all leadership levels
16. Provide support in the management of outages as needed, providing communications to small and large scale user groups.
