What's your new role about?

Do you want to be part of a team that engineers a global product that’s used by millions of users daily?
DAZN is one of the fastest-growing OTT companies in the world and streams over 40 different sports, from more than 300 different leagues, in over 200 countries. Since we launched in 2016, we have streamed more than 700+ million hours of content!
As a Head of Engineering / VP of Engineering in the Product Engineering Group, you’ll play a crucial role in driving initiatives and features to create world-class experiences on Mobile, Web and Living Room Devices. You need to create highly engaged, high-performing teams; able to iterate, optimise and learn as we develop and refine ideas. You need to empower your teams, allowing them to self-organise, yet be highly aligned; this is our way to operate at scale. And as a leader you need to deep-dive, technically, into solutions and problems in this hyper-fragmented and constrained technical space, mentoring and coaching the teams toward excellence.     
You will take a crucial part of building your group’s roadmap together with Product and Delivery teams. You’ll need to continue to hire great talent to compliment the already outstanding engineers; continually raising the bar. We're growing fast and have made a big impact so far, and that's just the beginning.
Your teams will be located in Poland and in India
There's so much we must do. Get ready for the journey.  This role will be based in our brand-new Hyderabad office.
Join us in India’s beautiful “City of Pearls” and bring your ambition to life.
