What's your new role about?

This is the chance of a lifetime. You'll play a vital role in building a world-class brand that delivers for customers each and every day. Your creativity will drive us to bigger and better things - your ideas will come to life as advertising campaigns that resonate around the world.

This is a great time to join us – come and help us build a better, more brilliant DAZN.
