Job Description

Job Title:
Data Programme Manager
Hammersmith, London, United Kingdom
Full-Time, Permanent
Analytics & Insights
Data & Analytics

What's your new role about?

Do you like the thought of making better business decisions using data?
Of helping a business to connect up data sourcing, data analytics and insight generation across multiple teams?
Dou you believe that a good project plan is the foundation but getting stuck in the fine details and fixing problems as they come up is key for success?

With your background in data analytics or programme management and your love for technology & sports, you will get the chance to bring data solutions to life and provide DAZN with invaluable oversight, as we progress on our data journey. This will cover both smaller projects, within our data community, and much wider business initiatives - that will need you to identify dependencies and understand the full impacts on data products for a wider range of business stakeholders.

As DAZN is a truly data driven environment, the Data Programme Manager is at the heart of decisions we make about how to use data and implement data solutions across our business. Meaning that on a frequent basis you will be liaising with business leaders and will make suggestions as to how we develop our data capability.

To give you an idea of what we mean by a state-of-art data environment: we use a Snowflake Data Warehouse in an AWS environment and have multiple tools that different teams use to clean, connect, enrich and model data. The end products can help deliver insight, can be integrated with our platform, or can be shared externally to improve business performance.

How will you stand out to us?

- New ideas for “joining the dots” in how data is sourced, processed, and used in a best of class business.
- Proven experience in the implementation of data programmes and applying frameworks that allow multiple teams to work towards a joined-up end goal.

… the rest we can teach you with your hunger to make an impact.

Benefits include 25 days annual leave (increasing by 3 days after 3 years), private medical insurance, Life Assurance, pension contributions up to 5%, access to a learning portal, training, development and more.
