Director of Delivery @ Joyn (7TV)
Joyn is a Munich based streaming platform and 50/50 joint venture from ProSiebenSat.1 (Germanys leading media and entertainment provider) and Discovery Inc. (a well-known international broadcasting organisation). They provide an all in one Video-On-Demand platform across the European continent, have been the number 1 downloaded on the app store in Germany and have nearly 4 million monthly active users already.
Following a major joint operation, the technology teams of both Discovery and PSS.1 were spun up into a brand new organisation. This brought many benefits but also a range of challenges as teams with very different ways of working were brought together. The client needed a Delivery Director with a strong appreciate for quality process as well as a media background who could hit the ground running and create a unified delivery.
