Job Requirements
  • We will consider experience across a range of systems architecture and software development frameworks and a proven track record of picking up new technologies quickly.

  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal with proven ability to communicate across cultures and geography
  • Basic understanding of football
  • Team player, self-motivated, hard-working
  • Ability and drive to travel, including spending some time with our tech team in Bath, UK

  • Experience with statistical programming and data science
