What's your new role about?

Do you want to have an impact on a product that is used by millions of users across multiple devices on a daily basis?

DAZN streams over 40 different sports, from more than 300 different leagues in 7 markets including Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada and the USA and since we launched 2 years ago we have streamed more than 200 million hours of content!

We are looking for Backend Engineers who are passionate about building a modern, scalable and resilient platform.

We give you autonomy over the software you build and offer you the freedom to choose the right tool for the job. In return, we expect you to take ownership of the systems you build, and that means:

– You’re responsible for the operational health of your services
– You’re empowered and encouraged to fix operational issues (i.e. there will be space for improvement work and bug fixes in the sprints)

We are using a micro services architecture and everything is hosted in AWS.

We use a combination of both containers as well as serverless, and many managed AWS services including DynamoDB, API Gateway, ECS, Lambda and much more.

HERE’S WHAT YOU WILL DO (NOT ALL OF IT, JUST THE IMPORTANT STUFF!)

  • Build and maintain scalable microservices
  • Collaborate with Product Managers, and other Software Engineers to deliver a compelling user experience
  • Deliver maintainable, robust and testable code
  • Share knowledge and collaborate with other developers across the business

YOU’VE GOT TO HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS TO DO YOUR JOB WELL…

  • Experience in building cloud-hosted services
  • Ability to effectively communicate technical ideas to others
  • Ability to write tests
  • Track record of successful software delivery through all phases of development, code reviews, testing, and operations

IT WOULD BE GREAT IF YOU HAD THESE DESIRABLE SKILLS/EXPERIENCE TOO…

  • Experience with Node.js
  • Experience with AWS
  • Experience with infrastructure and deployment automation
  • Worked on large scale web applications
  • Leverages and contributes to open source

Here's a little more about us…

DAZN is a tech-first sport streaming platform that reaches millions of users every week. We are challenging a traditional industry and giving power back to the fans.

This is the perfect place to work for passionate and creative engineers. We use a very modern tech stack to stream sports content to millions of concurrent viewers globally across multiple platforms and devices. The architecture of DAZN is based on Micro Frontends and unifies a range of technologies in order to deliver a seamless user experience.

This is an ambitious project with a fast release cycle that has scalability not only from a user point of view but also from a developer perspective. Imagine a tech start up culture but with the security and backing from a well established content and media agency.

Our engineers work in small teams and are given freedom and autonomy when it comes to the code that they write. If you like solving technical problems then this is the place to be. We have a community that is here to help. Want to join the revolution? Learn more about us here: https://engineering.dazn.com/
