Building a team starts with valuing the team. We hire the best of the best to ensure you’re working with people you can constantly learn from. You’re trusted to get your work done your way while testing the limits of what’s possible and what’s next. We work hard to provide a culture where everyone feels supported, and our employees feel it—their votes helped us become one of Newsweek's Top 100 Global Most Loved Workplaces in 2023.

We also value sports. Not just because of the big wins and highlight-worthy plays, but because of the lasting impact sports can have: the lifelong lessons in teamwork and dedication; the influence of inspiring mentors; the priceless opportunities to play at the next level. Sports can change lives—that’s what we value.

Our team helps the world see sports differently through products that make it easier to capture video, analyze data, share highlights and do a lot more.

  • A laser focus on user experience. You know how to scale your influence and connect with distributed, global design teams. You’re as proud of your organizational tools as you are the outcomes delivered to end users.

  • Engineering experience. You’ve spent time with front-end development, using languages such as HTML, CSS, React, and React Native and/or leveraging front-end tools such as Storybook. You’ve used those skills to contribute actual components to a previous design system.
  • A curious learner. You keep up to date with the latest design system trends and popular design systems such as Material and Spectrum.
  • A sports enthusiast. You understand the unique challenges and opportunities within the sports technology industry.

Our Role

  • Champion work-life harmony. We’ll give you the flexibility you need in your work life (e.g., flexible vacation time, company-wide holidays and timeout (meeting-free) days, remote work options and more) so you can enjoy your personal life too.
  • Guarantee autonomy. We have an open, honest culture and we trust our people from day one. Your team will support you, but you’ll own your work and have the agency to try new ideas.
  • Encourage career growth. We’re lifelong learners who encourage professional development. We’ll give you tons of resources and opportunities to keep growing.
