DATA I/O Operator



Mission’s expansion is continuing.

This role will be based at our new facility located at Shepperton Studios, starting May/June 2021.




As our DIT and digital dailies service offerings expand to meet the demands of a booming industry, we’re looking to recruit a Data IO Operator to be the bridge between our Technicians, digital dailies labs and Production.

Our data IO team is looking to grow further over the coming months and as a result we need someone with strong interpersonal skills and team spirit.


Mission is both fast-paced and forever evolving, and we’re passionate about hiring people who thrive in that environment. The successful candidate will be happy to turn their hand to whatever is needed to help keep things running smoothly.

  • 2-3 years of professional experience in a post-production/ offline editing environment

  • Solid understanding of professional post-production technology

  • Knowledge of LTO hardware and media transfer software

  • Capable of sound syncing

Mission aims to be an equal opportunities employer and we are determined to ensure that no applicant or employee receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, age, disability, religion, belief, sexual orientation, marital status, or race. In addition we are keen to increase diversity at every level of our organisation, in order to better reflect both our client base and the communities we serve. We particularly welcome and encourage applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates as BAME people are currently under-represented within the film and TV industry.




In return, you’ll get to work with a dedicated and friendly team, and be involved in some of the most exciting digital film projects currently being shot both here in the UK and abroad.
