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.

The architecture of DAZN is based on Micro Frontends and unifies a range of technologies in order to deliver a seamless user experience. 

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.
