CHANGING THE TALENT GAME @ DAZN

DAZN is changing the game in sports broadcasting, bringing fans closer than ever to the action with the help of Code First Girls. Working with an international team of DAZN Engineering and Talent teams, CFG upskilled DAZN team members to build internal talent pipelines in engineering.

LAYING FOUNDATIONS

FOR DIVERSE GROWTH

DAZN is growing rapidly with offices around the world and is committed to scaling with diversity in front-of-mind.

Their EDI team are using Code First Girls courses to encourage upskilling of their existing team and to build a foundation of diversity-focused employer brand identity.

TRANSFORMATIVE

TEAM SPIRIT

While DAZN did not plan on hiring any of the candidates that they trained on their pilot run of the Nanodegree, they ended up hiring four incredible candidates from the Code First Girls cohort.

They also offered the educational opportunity to an internal employee who went on to switch into a software engineering role after completing the Code First Girls Nanodegree. Learn about Hawa’s experiences here.
