What's your new role about?

As a Frontend Engineer you will be part of team responsible for revolutionising how DAZN manages its content, and creating an exceptional user experience for our editorial teams.
 
We support remote working, the only requirement is to be able to come to our Leeds office occasionally for any meetings, design sessions or maybe just to socialise (once the pandemic is over and we would be able to socialise again).
 
We are primarily a JavaScript team maintaining backend and frontend services, our full stack includes JS, Golang, React, AWS, Docker, Terraform, Node, Postgres and probably a few other bits.
 
As a front-end engineer we don't expect you to be well versed in all of these technologies, but we are a full stack DevOps team so we would hope and expect that everyone develops a range of skills, with help of course. We are fully empowered to effect change and to do what we need to ensure that we provide a great service to our customers.
 
As part of the team you would be active in working directly with our editorial users and our Product Owner, using wire framing tools and/or fast prototyping to support rapid development through collaborative design.

HERE’S A BREAKDOWN OF WHAT YOU’LL DO (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE MOST IMPORTANT STUFF)

  • Building features collaboratively with one or our editors or the product team
  • Building and maintaining automated tests
  • Understanding requirements and refining tickets
  • Ensuring that pipelines are operational
  • Helping, coaching and pairing with other team members

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Experience of working with React on front-end projects.
  • Good working knowledge with JavaScript
  • Good working knowledge of CSS
  • Have a passion for creating great user experiences. 
  • You're keen to learn new skills and acquire or maintain a breadth of expertise across tech domains.

NOT ESSENTIAL BUT GREAT IF YOU ALSO HAVE

  • Node
  • Anything back-end or infrastructure related
  • AWS

Here's a little more about us…

Benefits include 25 days’ annual leave (increasing by 3 days after 3 years), private medical insurance, life Assurance and pension contributions up to 5%.
 
And there’s more…… you’ll have access to our online learning portal (MindTools) and be part of our Career Deal, which aims to support your continued professional development. We also have a structured management development programme and a financially rewarding ‘Refer a Friend’ scheme. 
 
*Please Note - some of these benefits will be available to you upon successful completion of your probation.
