DAZN Hacks Taiwan - Backend Engineer in Amsterdam


Job Description

Job Title:
DAZN Hacks Taiwan - Backend Engineer in Amsterdam
Full-Time, Permanent
Software Engineering

What's your new role about?

DAZN is coming to Taipei in September 2019 to find talented Engineers looking to impact a product that reaches MILLIONS of concurrent users and have a desire to live in Europe! You will be given sponsorship to move to Amsterdam and a relocation package that includes flights, legal assistance, bonuses + more. Have you ever dreamed of lived and working abroad?

What’s better than writing code that reaches millions of concurrent users globally? Doing it with millions more in mind. In 2019, we have already expanded into Spain and Brazil after success in USA, Japan, Canada, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland and there are only more markets to follow.

Do you want the creative freedom to make the product something you’re proud to show others? The Backend teams are given the autonomy over the software built and provided and the power to select the right tool for the job to build a modern, scalable and resilient platform. In return, we expect you to take ownership of the systems you build, and that means: you're responsible for the operational health of your services and you're empowered and encouraged to fix operational issues (i.e. there will be space for improvement work and bug fixes in the sprints) We are using a microservices architecture and everything is hosted in AWS. We use a combination of both containers as well as serverless, and many managed AWS services including DynamoDB, API Gateway, ECS, Lambda and much more.
Is your current job allowing you to become better at your craft or just lengthening your years in the industry? Whether it's learning to speak at events, cross-training across the stack, learning to develop tools for other teams or gaining knowledge and ideas from some of the great minds we have here – you’ll always be getting better at DAZN.

  • Experience in building cloud-hosted services
  • Ability to effectively communicate technical ideas to others
  • Ability to write tests
