Venue Tech Solution Specialist

  • Job Type: Full-time
  • Location: Nationwide /Remote
  • Reporting into: Head of Technology Operations
  • Salary: £40,000 FTE

PTI are looking for an ambitious Venue Tech Product Specialist. PTI’s rapid growth has opened up an opportunity for an experienced individual to play a key role in the design & build of the technologies that are increasingly appreciated as underpinning not only physical access to stadia and arenas, but also to the fan’s event day experience. If you love sport, love live entertainment, and love technology, we want you in this role!

PTI is a digital transformation consultancy which specialises in driving smart, scalable and sustainable revenues for the Sports and Entertainment industries through a holistic digital-led commercial vision.

The PTI Digital Transformation “Pyramid”Our approach combines the revolutionary vision of our Digital Transformation Pyramid with an evolutionary approach. Many of us have worked client-side and understand the realities of the day-to-day pressures so we recognise that whilst the endgame is genuinely transformational, we need to move at their pace.

Our clients have all started their journey with us on different parts of the pyramid but placing short term needs into the context of a broader long-term roadmap enables discussions about “cost” to become discussions about “investment”. Whereas many rush into the “what?” PTI always start with “Why?”

Current PTI Clients include: OakView Group, London Stadium, NEC Group, Edgbaston Stadium, Bristol Sport & Ashton Gate Stadium, Norwich City FC, Wasps & CBS Arena, Bath Rugby, UK Pro League Tennis, Lancashire Cricket and Surrey CCC with many more in the pipeline.

We have an agile, fast growing digital-age business, with an ever-expanding client base. Our client work fits the same bill: we are building digital-first 365/24 commercial models built on wide-reaching engagement strategies, a smart digital and data ecosystem and a creative approach to commercialising their audiences all year-round.
