Our backlog exists in Jira. We write code to solve problems constantly, mostly in React and Golang, store it in Github and use Github Actions to deploy it to AWS. We secure secrets with Hashicorp Vault, use New Relic as an observability platform and send alerts to people with PagerDuty.

  • You speak with the business, and developer leadership community to clearly understand their needs and bring this back to the team 
  • You prioritise, hire, plan and roadmap effectively to keep your team scaled right and delivering fast

What will you be doing?

  • You will help build, nurture and grow the SRE squads who enable DAZN teams to achieve their reliability goals. 
  • You will be the bridge between the business leads and the team, helping them define their targets and helping us deliver what they need to achieve them. 
  • You will be growth planning for your team, you will have a succession plan. 
  • You will engage with the management community and help DAZN be better for your team.
