What's your new role about?

What’s better than supporting engineers that reach millions of concurrent users globally? Doing it with millions more users in mind. As we come to the end of 2019 DAZN is currently live in USA, Japan, Canada, Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Brazil. Moving into 2020 there are only more markets to follow. You will be responsible for supporting our Software Engineering Scrum teams to deliver their sprint commitments, removing blockers and coaching them to self-organise.

Do you want the creative freedom to lead engineering initiatives within a strong engineering culture?
We want to make the product something you’re proud to show others your family and friends. You will be given the autonomy to help our Cloud Engineers / Site Reliability Engineers with the software built and provide them the power to select the right tool for the job to build a modern, scalable and resilient platform.

Is your current job allowing you to become better at your craft or just lengthening your years in the industry? Weather it's learning to speak at events, getting involved in the Scrum Master community, working with other teams or gaining knowledge and ideas from some of the great minds we have here – you’ll always be getting better at DAZN.
