Job Description

About Us

We're a football analytics startup (both the soccer and American varieties!) We sell data products as well as analysis tools to sports organisations, with a tech stack that includes computer vision, machine learning, stream processing, and web-based dataviz. We count many of the biggest names in football as customers, and your work will have a direct impact on our ability to deliver insights to those customers, driving success on the field.

About The Role

We're hiring JavaScript developers of all levels of experience to support our data collection apps, web UIs and internal tools. Our current tech stack includes:

  • Desktop video tagging software built with Electron
  • React web UIs using Redux
  • GraphQL APIs on top of Postgres databases
  • Node.js back-end apps
  • Kafka processing pipelines

We're looking for people to join teams working on any or all aspects of this stack, as well as more senior engineers who are able to:

  • Mentor junior team members
  • Demonstrate and evangelise best practices in JavaScript and beyond
  • Keep an eye on new ideas and libraries in the JavaScript, Node.js and React ecosystems

Our teams also work in Clojure, Python for machine learning, and SQL and R for ad-hoc analysis, so knowledge or at least tolerance of those technologies would be a plus.
