What's your new role about?

Creating narratives for promos, graphics and motion graphics is in your DNA? How about doing it for premium sports rights like Serie A and Formula 1 across Italy and Spain?
Here’s your chance to join DAZN and help us building world-in-class creative and promo teams across our Italian and Spanish operations.
 
As our Head of Studios, you’ll get the unique opportunity to establish new ways of working. Starting at defining our creative strategy, you’ll look at creating storyboards for promos for on-air and templates for static and motion graphics to be used across DAZNs content, visual assets and social media channels. Together with your team, you’ll then implement our new best practices and help marketing our premium sports rights – from Serie A in Italy to MotoGP in Spain. All while making sure our brand identity is across all assets your team produces.

When you start, you’ll first get to hire your own team, formed of producers, editors, graphic and motion designers, working with people based in our Milan and Madrid office.

What you’ll need? A passion for Sports, a background in broadcasting or with a creative agency working across production, editorial and social, a hawk eye to ensure high quality output, excellent team management skills and flexibility. As live sport is on during evenings and weekends, you’ll be working flexibly Mondays to Sundays.

Sounds like you? Then apply today!
