Join our talented technical team and help us change the game.
Our engineering department comprises twenty people split into focused teams working on a broad set of problems across trading, modelling and football analysis. We cultivate an agile working environment; planning milestones and user stories, heavy collaboration, and understanding every aspect of the domain is all part of the day-to-day.
We are always interested in people with prior and demonstrable experience in solving interesting problems. If you are an engineer with a natural curiosity and a desire to improve yourself, chances are you are what we are looking for. We are looking for someone with a well-rounded skillset; having worked on one aspect of an enterprise, monolithic application may not prepare you for the breadth of work you’ll encounter.
Continual knowledge-sharing, learning and support within teams is critical to how we work. As a passionate engineer we’d expect you to constantly wish to up-skill, something Football Radar will enthusiastically support.
Alongside mastering technologies and practices that you already know, you will be encouraged to learn technologies across our entire stack: our backend technologies include Scala, Akka, Python and PHP; in the frontend we use React, redux and RxJS; our infrastructure is built on Docker and Mesos.
The data science team spends its time trying to draw interesting and business-relevant conclusions from Football Radar’s extremely high-quality data. We aim to do this in a way that is fully up to date with the latest best practice in sports analysis, statistics and software development.
It’s a fantastic place for anyone who is eager to learn how many ways there are to control a football, how to fit multi-level statistical models or how best to collaboratively manage computer code.
Before starting at Football Radar I did a PhD in philosophy of probability, and had very little programming experience. I’ve been really well supported in improving in this area – there’s always someone around who’s happy to point you in the right direction. I’ve also been encouraged to pursue independent research into potential new ways of doing things and put them into practice.
The best thing about working here is the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. Every employee’s contribution is valued, there is always something fun going on and things are invariably managed in a relaxed, transparent and professional way.
I joined Football Radar as a Software Engineer having been working for the Philharmonia Orchestra.
I love the company, but what I find particularly valuable is how collaborative the engineering team is. Everyone has their particular passion, and no-one is ever too busy to work with you on a particular problem.
We're looking for the best so ensure that your CV is up to scratch and that we can clearly identify what your capabilities are.
Prepare yourself, our telephone interviews will test your engineering capabilities as well as allow us to learn a little bit more about you. We like to put a personality to an application so now is your time to shine!
If you make it through our phone interview, well done! Here you will spend time with our managers who would like to get to know you more. Make sure you've done your research on the job!
Congratulations! You're officially an Engineer at Football Radar. We'll drop you a line to ask you what hardware you'd like and to give you a run down on your first day, including the all important welcome breakfast. Before that, time for celebration!
