What's your new role about?
HERE’S SOME INFORMATION FOR YOU?
You can enable international teams of creative talent to create award winning experiences and drive innovation. You are a natural communicator who understands the complex and makes it simple. You drive every phase of the project lifecycle supporting and enabling a team of individuals. You understand the value of building relationships with internal and external communities and encourage the teams to do the same. You are always looking inwards and outwards and trying new ways of working doesn’t faze you. You constantly zoom in and out on the team’s and business’s needs and you’ve got a good balance between strategic and analytic. You can work in speed but have a firm view of the future. You are always 10 steps ahead but often look back to learn from mistakes. You are naturally curious, you understand pop culture and you are tirelessly following the design and tech trends. You are a passionate individual, your positive energy can turn any challenge into opportunities and you are a keen advocate of DAZN’s product design team.
The Product Design Team is a collective of talented experience designers (UX and UI), Creative Technologists, User Researchers and Copyrwriters. It is a truly international team shaping the future of video streaming experiences on web, mobile and TV whilst also designing engaging websites and apps.
This is a global role and is key for the success and growth of the team. As the team grows this role will grow with it and it will be key for maintaining a positive culture for creativity.
If the VP of Design is the right-brain you are the left and together you run a world class design and innovation studio. Your role is critical for introducing and implementing best practices and design innovative ways of working that promote creativity. You are running the team like an inhouse studio and you are key in translating the vision and make it reality. You will work in close collaboration with the team Design Leads, PM’s and TPMs to ensure that the teams are working efficiently and communicate effectively.
Every design project will at some point pass under your nose, from user interface development to content pitches, from proposition designs to strategic presentations. You will be working with designers, copywriters, user researchers, technologists, product and tech managers, strategists and marketeers, across cities and continents and will play a fundamental role in raising the team’s profile internally and externally.
