What's your new role about?


DAZN is going to change the way people watch sports forever by putting the consumer first, providing more sport, no long contracts and a single low monthly fee. We're growing fast, constantly adding new sports to our service and have recently launched our service globally.
As part of the DAZN Operational Tooling and Systems (DOTS) product engineering team, you will play a lead role in this by designing, building and supporting the services that power our world-leading streaming service across web, mobile and TV platforms.
The DOTS are responsible for all aspects of the content that users see on the platform from content metadata, imagery and translations, to rights management, event scheduling, editorial tooling and CMS systems. We're now moving into the next phase and are looking to create the next generation of these systems allowing the company to rapidly scale and grow.
Within our rapidly expanding company; growth within the team and opportunities to lead engineering initiatives are abundant. We need people who are happy to take ownership of their services, thrive when given autonomy, and are eager to contribute to creating a strong engineering culture of inclusion, fun and openness. 


Our engineering teams work on both the frontend and backend aspects of our systems. One day you could be building React admin interfaces, the next creating a Lambda microservice using Node.js and Terraforming AWS infrastructure. However, within our teams there is great opportunity to specialise in the areas you prefer. 

An average day you may find yourself:

  • Using node.js to build backend services and frameworks
  • Using react to build frontend DOTS applications
  • Using Terraform to define our cloud infrastructure
  • Joining in group discussions and collaboration sessions
  • Working closely with your team of engineers and product to deliver software
  • Deploying code to production regularly (daily ideally)
  • Helping to support the products you help to create


  • Strong knowledge of modern Javascript, including node.js and react.js frameworks
  • Strong coding skills in general; able to demonstrate multiple ways to solve any given problem
  • At least a conceptual knowledge of cloud technology, especially AWS
  • Be able to write automation tests and fully understand the importance of testing. The whole team is responsible for quality, not just the tester!
  • Experience with Agile frameworks and working within an agile, dynamic team environment
  • DevOps skills - “Build it, own it, run it”
  • Be at home working with CI/CD pipelines


  • Experience with media streaming
  • Experience with event streams and message-based architectures
  • Experience with GraphQL
  • Experience writing Infrastructure as code (e.g. Terraform, Cloudformation, etc)
  • Experience with AWS technologies
  • Experience with Docker and container orchestration technologies
