What a great time to join to DAZN. We are growing exponentially after acquiring the broadcasts rights to the Serie A in Italy!
 
Live and breathe sport? Transmission experience in live sports broadcasting? Ready to ‘grand slam’ your way into a brand new role with one of the fastest growing sports broadcasters in the world?
 
As our Transmission Controller, your responsibility will include broadcasting various live sports events to our Spanish and Italian linear channels and unique OTT product. Our linear and OTT channels transmit globally to our various territories and you’ll take ownership for managing these communications as well as communications between our global production facilities.
 
We’re a dynamic, evolving ‘live’ environment where no two days are the same. We thrive on the excitement of transmitting seamless sporting events to our subscribers around the world. We are proud of our vibrant Bangor team at the helm of the broadcast arm of the business. So, if you’re also a bit of a chameleon who enjoys adapting to changing business needs, cultures, conditions and work responsibilities, then this could be the role for you!

Other benefits include 25 days’ annual leave (increasing by 3 days after 3 years), private medical insurance, life assurance, pension contributions up to 5%, access to learning portal, training and development and more.

  • Providing support of all Transmission services and equipment
  • Pre-empting all possible faults and a resolution plan ready to minimise ‘on-air’ impact

YOU’LL BE SET UP FOR SUCCESS IF YOU HAVE:

  • Solid experience working in transmission with knowledge of file based media preparation
  • Experience working in a live sports environment
  • Operational and technical experience with broadcast automation systems 
  • A good understanding of IP and linear protocols. Familiar with the technologies and processes of delivering IP content

EVEN BETTER IF YOU HAVE:
