Job Description

DAZN’s Transmission Team Leaders are the main point of contact within the live Transmission Suite.  Working to a shift pattern in line with DAZNs busy sports schedule, they supervise its team of talented Transmission Controllers as they deliver a broad spectrum of premium sports rights across its OTT and Linear services, including UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Premier League, Japan’s J League, Formula 1, Moto GP, NFL and many fight sports. 
DAZN is like no other sports broadcaster.  It delivers live sport at high volume and at pace, globally.  It’s an incredibly exciting environment – and while DAZN continues to grow as a product, the successful candidate will find themselves in a position to influence change.
