What's your new role about?

As the title suggests, this is a senior role which demands production and management expertise in both live event and non-live production. You will be responsible for setting the daily editorial, production and creative vision for boxing programming in North America.

On the live events side you will manage and deploy line producers, a features team and all other production staff that work on the broadcast.
 
On the non-live side, you will lead a team of content makers, hold planning meetings and efficiently manage resources.
 
Working with the VP of Live Event and Studio and the EVP of content for North America, you will spearhead development on original boxing programming – taking part in conversations around talent, format and creative vision.
 
You will be a key liaison between our promotional partners (Matchroom Boxing and Golden Boy Promotions) to ensure a collaborative atmosphere and the DAZN boxing product meets expectations.
 
One other thing – the ability to embrace data is crucial.  There’s significant importance in data led decision making and the embrace of creative workflows that fit into DAZN’s global structure.
 
Outside of production duties, you will be a necessary representative for internal meetings around sales, PR, marketing and distribution.
 
You will have the opportunity to shape a new generation of sports fans via a video OTT platform that delivers streaming of sport (live and on demand) to customers around the world.
