What's your new role about?

What’s better than writing code that reaches millions of concurrent users globally? Doing it with millions more in mind. In 2020, we went global multiplying our engineering challenges. To support our global takeover as the leading sports OTT platform we are looking for Backend Engineers who are passionate about building a modern, scalable and resilient platform and want to contribute to our mission of pushing the boundaries.

WHAT'S YOUR NEW ROLE ABOUT?

We give you autonomy over the software you build and offer you the freedom to choose the right tool for the job. In return, we expect you to take (e2e) ownership of the systems you build, and that means:

– You’re responsible for the operational health of your services
– You’re empowered and encouraged to fix operational issues (i.e. there will be space for improvement work and bug fixes in the sprints)

We are using a microservices architecture and everything is hosted in AWS.

We use a combination of both containers as well as serverless, and many managed AWS services including DynamoDB, API Gateway, ECS, Lambda and much more.

Our teams mainly use NodeJS to build our backend systems, therefore, experience with JavaScript would be great! However, we hire tech agnostically as we believe in hiring problem solvers! If you can contribute to DAZN's engineering challenge than we would be happy to teach you the tools necessary to be successful with us. 

Ready to get in DAZN, impact millions globally and continue to change the sports OTT landscape?

HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL DO (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE IMPORTANT STUFF!)

  • Build and maintain scalable microservices
  • Collaborate with Product Managers, and other Software Engineers to deliver a compelling user experience
  • Deliver maintainable, robust and testable code
  • Share knowledge and collaborate with other developers across the business

YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS TO DO YOUR JOB WELL…

  • Experience in building cloud-hosted services
  • Ability to effectively communicate technical ideas to others
  • Ability to write tests
  • Track record of successful software delivery through all phases of development, code reviews, testing, and operations

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE DESIRABLE SKILLS/EXPERIENCE TOO…

  • Experience with Node.js
  • Experience with AWS
  • Experience with infrastructure and deployment automation
  • Worked on large scale web applications
  • Leverages and contributes to open source

Here's a little more about us…
