Become an expert player analyst
Our Liverpool office is home to our Player Analysis team. Opened this year, player analysts here watch games in extremely high detail using our unique framework to measure player performance from several leagues. This team is at the forefront of the football analysis industry, providing our models with highly unique information. This is one of the fastest growing areas at Football Radar.
Role & Team
You will be working alongside other football experts who are passionate about understanding which players are better than others. Player analysts regularly spend between 8-10 hours to analyse one game of football from a growing number of leagues, using multiple scales from our framework to assess player actions and movements. In the role, you will be continuously developing your knowledge by undergoing training experiences where you will learn better ways to assess player attributes and skill level. As you can imagine we enjoy a lot of football quizzes and you’ll have the chance to get involved with these and many other fun socials.
What you need
You will have sheer football passion and an ability to focus for prolonged periods. We are not necessarily looking for people who have already been analysts or scouts, however, we are looking for people who have the attention to detail of a scout along with the diligence of a performance analyst. As we are continuously innovating you will need a willingness to learn and desire to improve through feedback. Working hours are flexible and analysis is performed Monday to Friday at our comfortable office.
Testimonials
Sean's story
Player analyst
Growing up in the football-mad city of Liverpool, it was never an option to not love the game. After working with my previous employer for many years I felt I needed a fresh change of career, and I was luckily directed to the FR website by a friend. I applied, took the gamble and it was the best career decision I have ever made.

I’m really happy to be working in an industry that interests me, doing something that drives my passion for football and learning new skills along the way. It’s fascinating to analyse players from different teams and leagues in so much detail.

Like all new jobs, there was lots to learn in the beginning and it continues to be challenging, however, the team around me are fantastic and have helped me to settle into the role quicker than I thought possible. I can also say that the job has also made me feel much more relaxed at home, and has had a positive effect on my mental wellbeing.

The office environment is extremely welcoming and there is a passion to be the best company in the football industry, with each member of the team having a desire to play their part in the company’s success.

If you enjoy a challenge, want to feel part of something quite special and have a meticulous attitude, Football Radar is a fantastic place to be.

the game for everyone
We believe that football should be inclusive and we are committed to creating a workplace that is free from discrimination, where people can bring their whole selves to everything we do. We are proud to be a member of Stonewall’s “Diversity Champions” programme.
We recognise that football has an important role in giving back to the community. Inspired by this we are partners with “Football Beyond Borders”, an educational charity which uses the power of football to support disadvantaged people.
