What's your new role about?
Do you thrive in problem-solving, organising and fixing errors which don’t respond to “plug out and back in”?
Within the handball content services team, we will rely on you to ensure our produced content goes where it needs to go – and on time!

Through our long-term partnership with the European Handball Federation EHF, it’s marketing division EHFM and Infront DAZN has the chance to exploit worldwide media rights and change the way handball is brought to its fans.
During our 10 years’ partnership, our aims are simple yet ambitious:
- Deliver relevant and amazing content for broadcasters and digital channels
- Grow our distribution network and wake the world up to handball's best property
- Innovate with content & technology
You will be based in our Madrid office. There is just one thing we ask from you: as you’ll be working in live sports broadcasting, flexible working hours on evenings and weekends in line with live sporting events must be ok for you.
