Football Radar is an exciting company which is disrupting the football analytics industry. For over ten years we have successfully developed football analytical frameworks and statistical models, and as a result we have become a market leader in providing data and football odds for the betting industry.
The company was founded with one clear vision in mind: to become the number one experts on football. With a unique approach that combines statistical modelling with innovative data collection and subjective input from highly skilled analysts, we believe that we can continue to take our understanding of the game to new levels.
As we've expanded we have found it important to uphold the principles that drove us in the first place and for us football is still a passion as well as a job. We see ourselves as an interesting mix of start-up and established business with the flexibility of the former and the security of the latter.
We have an exciting opportunity for a senior data scientist to join our team and help us uncover new football insights to push our models further and stay at the forefront of our industry.
As a senior data scientist in our data science team, you will have the opportunity to lead a variety of projects across different areas of our business, working cross functionally with both engineers and with our teams of football experts. We are first and foremost a football company, and to have a big impact here, you will need not only technical skills, but also domain expertise – you will probably be a big football fan, and ideally someone who has worked with sports statistics before. We are looking for someone with a good product sense: you should be able to think strategically and set your own direction. You need to be able to make good decisions even when there is a lot of ambiguity, understanding the trade-offs of different approaches.
