This role is a customer facing position, overseeing the look and feel of the platform. DAZN produces innovative live and original content for various markets. As the Deputy Editor of DAZN, you will have technical acumen paired with significant editorial knowledge of Football and major sports as Motorsports, Basketball, American Football, Tennis, Rugby and Darts.
