In Cloud Engineering we aim to build and maintain the common Platform and systems used by the development teams and other parts of the business. Your role will be to grow existing teams, promoting an environment of freedom, trust, and responsibility and preparing and enabling your team to excel. You will know when to step in and when to let the team learn from their own mistakes – be a servant leader. You will be a proven Coach and Mentor, able to grow each of your team members. As a leader, you will champion discussions across the whole DAZN as part of community-based sharing groups.   

Your team 

The teams develop and maintain various highly available and reliable Cloud platform components that underpin the entire DAZN offering. They develop our cloud provisioning approach, core identity management systems, improve container clusters and serverless patterns and raise the bar on SecOps tooling and integrations. The scope is both wide and deep so there’s tremendous potential for growing our engineers (and naturally, your leadership skills). 
We are passionate about building a Platform that supports DAZN’s Global presence by making the best use of AWS services, opensource tools and our engineers’ ingenuity! Our core tech stack includes Golang & Nodejs, AWS, GCP and Azure, Docker & Kubernetes, Hashicorp’s products and a plethora of modern and exciting technological work. 

We’re have a hybrid way of working, mostly remote, spread across three countries, with only occasional office visits so we can get together, socialise, and meet other people in the flesh. 
This role can be based out of the London, Leeds or Amsterdam offices.  

Here's what you'll do:

  • Developing team members through goals, appraisals, 1:1s, mentoring and coaching 
  • Making delivery focused decisions to ensure we meet our OKRs 
  • Creating a culture of freedom and responsibility that shines through high quality and added value work 
  • Driving engineering excellence across the team by fostering modern engineering practices, reliability, and stakeholder engagement 
  • Championing community-based discussions 
  • Recruiting and onboarding new members of your teams 
  • Growing technically by being involved in the teams’ discussions and solving management problems with a technical mindset 

You'll be set up for success if you have:

  • Previous experience of managing engineers 
  • Background as an Engineer (Platform, Software or equivalent) and good understanding of technical aspects 
  • Experience working in Cloud native environments 
  • Demonstrable experience of growing and motivating team members 
  • Excellent influencing skills with people at all seniority levels 
  • Ability to prioritise under pressure in a range of situations 
  • Good understanding of Agile methodologies 
  • Ability to handle conflict effectively 
  • An innovative, flexible, calm and proactive approach 

Even better if you have:

  • A desire to keep improving technically as well as in leadership 
  • Knowledge of SRE concepts and their practical application
