What's your new role about?

Do you want to have an impact on a product that is used by millions of users across multiple devices on a daily basis?
 
DAZN streams over 40 different sports, from more than 300 different leagues in 9 markets including Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada, USA, Spain and Brazil. Since we launched 3 years ago we have streamed more than 300 million hours of content!
 
We are looking for experienced engineers to join our Cloud Engineering Team, who are passionate about making the best use of AWS services and building scalable systems
 
The Cloud Engineering team sit alongside the Developer Experience and SRE teams. We are responsible for all of our cloud infrastructure from account provisioning through containers all the way to fully monitored ECS clusters. We build tools to automate everything and make life easier for everyone (including ourselves!)
 
Our main tech stack includes Golang, git, AWS, Docker, Terraform, Lambda, and much more, always evolving.

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

  • Build and support our cloud engineering team
  • Identify areas for automation, and lead the charge towards hands-free Cloud
  • Develop methods to get (and keep) our developers online fast.
  • Design DAZN's future cloud architecture, K8s? sure, Kafka? let’s do it! Hybrid cloud... show us why!
  • Review planned application architectures

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • An intimate understanding of cloud design and operation, and how it fits alongside the other teams
  • Terraform ninja, you should dream in HCL
  • A deep knowledge of containerised deployments and lambda-based architecture patterns
  • Ability to effectively translate from vision to technical delivery
  • Experience with event-driven / asynchronous architectures
  • An attitude which focuses on teaching and learning

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE DESIRABLE SKILLS

  • Track record of successful software delivery through all phases of development, code reviews, testing, and operations
  • Experience with Golang, other statically typed languages are available.
  • Experience optimizing for high concurrency
  • Understanding of live broadcast technologies is a massive advantage

Here's a little more about us…

DAZN is a tech-first sport streaming platform that reaches millions of users every week. We are challenging a traditional industry and giving power back to the fans.

This is an ambitious project with a fast release cycle that has scalability not only from a user point of view but also from a developer perspective. Imagine a tech start up culture but with the security and backing from a well-established content and media agency.
