Rome Business School students meet DAZN
Rome Business School students had the opportunity to meet DAZN, one of the biggest players in online video streaming for sports events, and listen to the words of Eleonora Losi, Talent Acquisition Partner at DAZN from the Milan office, and Samira Wiechmann Talent Acquisition Lead at DAZN, from the London office. Through their words they got to know better the international and innovative business environment of the DAZN Group, which today has about three thousand employees scattered around the world in major cities such as Tokyo, Madrid, Amsterdam, Leeds, Munich, Milan, London, and Katowice and has grown massively since its launch.
DAZN is a global over-the-top sports (OTT) subscription video streaming service. The service carries live and on-demand streaming of events from various properties as well as original programming. DAZN launched in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Japan in August 2016, and in Canada the following year. It launched in the United States and Italy in 2018, and in Spain and Brazil in 2019. In December 2020, it expanded to become available in more than 200 countries and territories. In October 2019, mobile analytics firm SensorTower listed DAZN as having overtaken Major League Baseball as the highest-grossing sports-related mobile app in the first half of 2019 in terms of worldwide revenue on application storefronts. After only a few years since its launch DAZN has acquired exclusive rights to sports events and is working to increase its own content.
During the session we discussed the different markets in which the company operates, including the Italian one, DAZN’s strategy for the future and even the launch of NFTs. Our guests also shared the open positions across the different markets as well as the requirements, the values and skills that make a candidate successful.
Our guests emphasized “It is not important to be a sports fan and you don’t necessarily have to have worked in the field, but you do need relevant experience on the role you are applying to”
