Who We Are 

Sporty Group is a consumer internet and technology business with an unrivalled sports media, gaming, social and fintech platform which serves millions of daily active users across the globe via technology and operations hubs across more than 10 countries and 3 continents. 

The recipe for our success is to discover intelligent and energetic people, who are passionate about our products and serving our users, and attract and retain them with a dynamic and flexible work life which empowers them to create value and rewards them generously based upon their contribution. 

We have already built a capable and proven team of 300+ high achievers from a diverse set of backgrounds  and we are looking for more talented individuals to drive further growth and contribute to the innovation, creativity and hard work that currently serves our users further via their grit and innovation. 

What We’re Looking For 

This is an ideal role for someone with 1+ years tech recruiting experience either as an agency recruiter looking for their first in-house appointment or with solid experience working software engineering requirements. Technical recruiting experience in modern development frameworks will be necessary.  

Skills and experience in sourcing technical talent will be necessary from the get go. 

Our products are built in Java (Spring Boot), we use Javascript frameworks for our frontend and we have top ranking iOS and Android apps. All our infrastructure is open source, we store virtually in AWS using Docker and Kubernetes. 

What We Offer 

You’ll be working with our Head of Talent to get you up and running with internal processes and tool kits, as well as for day to day teamwork and check-ins. You’d become fully responsible for your recruitment life cycles including screening, interview prep and you'd work together managing the process through to hire. Support and guidance will be part of this process and you’d work closely together on candidate strategy.  

The aim of this position is to skill you up into a fully independent capable contributor at Sporty.

Direct applications and 3rd party delivery will generate your pipeline (if you have additional alternative sourcing methods or preferred platforms we would be happy to test and implement viable solutions). It would be helpful if you have regional or localised knowledge of our hiring stack in the global market and are able to offer insights. Market mapping skills and acumen will be highly valued.  

You will be part of a growing team and will have the required support and training needed to help you succeed. We promote work life balance. We offer the flexibility for you to work hours that suit you and we promote a self starting culture.
