The new hires, who are among a handful of hires announced today, will work with ESPN’s digital and digital strategy teams, as well as with editorial, talent and product teams.
The company is looking to hire a handful more digital and content-focused people over the next year.
ESPN, which is owned by Disney, also has a global presence in sports, news and entertainment.
The job description for the new hires comes at a time when the company is seeking to diversify its content strategy and improve its online presence.
As part of its efforts, ESPN is currently working on its new ESPN app, which includes live streaming of games and content from ESPN Deportes and the College Football Playoff Committee, and ESPN’s live, interactive streaming of college football games, which will begin this spring.
The app will include an interactive, real-time view of ESPN content and events that is similar to the way ESPN shows its live game coverage on ESPN.com and on the ESPN app for Apple TV and Roku.
The app will be available to anyone, and it will be the first of several such apps ESPN is developing for mobile devices.
