WHAT'S YOUR NEW ROLE ABOUT?
You will be joining the DAZN Platform Team. Our role is to reduce the time our business developers spend worrying about infrastructure, security, observability, deployment and other underlying systems.
We develop and maintain a common platform where these things are taken care of, so the business developers can get on writing DAZN’s world-leading product.
We do this using Kubernetes alongside cloud-native components, and third-party tools such as Hashicorp Vault, Github and New Relic among others.
Your days will be spent making sure our services are deployed safely, quickly, cost-effectively and enable self-service build-run-own by the development teams. You’ll be writing and reviewing code, talking with and supporting developers across the world, and working with cool people and systems to get this done.
We are blameless, agile, caring and supportive. We succeed or fail as a team.
HERE'S WHAT YOU WILL DO
- Continuously improve the Platform that underpins DAZN’s services
- Write code, not just YAML or config files
- Help design and build our brand-new cloud-agnostic Platform layer
- Work with modern CNCF technologies like Kubernetes, Envoy, ArgoCD
- Be involved in large scale Cloud deployments, networking, and infrastructure across all 3 major cloud providers (AWS, Azure, GCP)
- Improve our authn/authz, security processes and tooling
- Participate, be heard, influence, grow, and make a difference
- Being adaptable and ready for on-call support is essential in our role. It's like being the superhero of our team, ready to swoop in and save the day whenever the need arises.
DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?
- An intimate understanding of Experience building, securing, and managing Kubernetes clusters for others to use
- A sound knowledge and experience with containerised or serverless workloads
- Coding experience (we use Golang and TypeScript but any high-level language is good)
- Experience with event-driven / asynchronous designs
- A considerate, inclusive and team player spirit
IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE DESIRABLE SKILLS
- Experience with Golang to a good proficiency level
- Experience with Service Mesh technologies like Istio
- Experience in multi-cloud Kubernetes deployments
- Understanding of OAuth/OIDC flows and AuthN/AuthZ in general
- SRE concepts and their practical application
