Discovery's Guiding Principles are designed to define the distinctive character, spirit and attitude of our organization…and to inspire us as we design our future.

We really want our leaders to model these principles, and to infuse them into everything we do. This really gets to the very core of Discovery – our spirit, our attitudes and aspirations – our ethos.

The Way We Work

In Asia, our culture and general leadership traits are in evolution as we migrate from being a traditional linear Pay TV business towards a convergent media and entertainment business that encompasses digital and mobile platforms. We are developing direct consumer relationships while still supporting our traditional platform partners with innovative solutions to help them grow and evolve their businesses. We are looking to embrace a 'maker' culture in a dynamic, entrepreneurial, youthful and low-hierarchy setting akin to Silicon Valley tech firms. We are looking for the brightest candidates – driven by passion and curiosity, and who are not afraid to step out of their comfort zone – to support this journey.
