We believe in constant growth in a collaborative, positive environment, ideal for engineers who are looking to drive their careers on by joining a dynamic, growing team.

An idea of your day to day work

    • Build interfaces that make it incredibly easy to get information into our system. We collect data from a wide range of sources, so it has to be frictionless for customers
    • Design and build tools that help people make sense of the data they’ve collected and allow them to gain quick insights to power their decision making
    • Obsess over the quality of the products that you build. We care deeply about providing an amazing user experience and achieve that through a mix of automation, constantly shipping new code, and iterating in short loops
    • Ensure the scalability and availability of our systems by writing robust and well tested code
    • Add to our product planning process by building prototypes, collaborating closely with Product, Design and Sports Science - trying to meet user requirements by adopting new use cases and technical approaches
    • Help us constantly improve our engineering processes, standards and tooling
    • Contribute to our technical architecture as we grow

Experience we look for:

    • You’ve created multiple complex mobile apps and delivered them to customers. Our apps are rich and feature-ful. This combined with our broad, diverse user base means we’ll be interested in the scope of the apps you have built
    • Comprehensive commercial experience developing mobile applications using Swift or Objective-c.
    • Experience writing detailed UI and unit tests
    • Experience using version control, managing build pipelines and deploying mobile applications

    • Good UI design skills with a strong consideration for usability
    • Experience working in a process orientated team
