Full-time
Medal.tv is one of the fastest-growing consumer applications in gaming! Our users capture and share millions of videos every week, and connect with one another around their shared gaming experiences.

We are an international fully remote team, where everyone works autonomously with the expectations that you can be available for team syncs in the same core hours (9:00 am and 12:00 pm PST). The exact times and days vary per team.

As an organization Medal encompasses several different initiatives, like the Medal application itself, Medal trends, the mobile game developer SDK Megacool, the Discordbot directory top.gg, and similar. We're looking for someone who can help us unify and optimize our analytics platform to make it easier to extract actionable intelligence.

The data team at Medal is a new initiative and we thus need you that knows the ins and outs of setting up the necessary cloud infrastructure from scratch and can take initiative for the direction of the project.
