The Job

WarnerMedia seeks a SWAT Master Control for the Atl Master Control department.

The CNN Master Control SWAT Operators are the leaders of the department acting as a front line for equipment failure, media management, and training for the department as a whole. MC SWAT supports the management team through involvement in projects and acting as representatives of the department in planning meetings. We are the first group in when it comes to developing, testing and documenting processes, workflow and Standard Operating Procedures. We are a self-directed team, making our own schedules week by week in order to cover PTO and UTO across all networks. However, there's another level of expectation for a SWAT operator: We must also stand as an example to our peers concerning proper SOP execution, partnership with clients, disaster recovery and decisive action. SWAT MCOs not only embrace change but commonly lead the charge for the entire department, mastering new equipment and training our peers to ensure the best possible performance.
