Optima Sports Systems is assembling a team to develop next-generation football analytics software. Leveraging the latest technology in computer vision and machine learning, and an understanding of the game from top football coaches, our software will provide automatic tactical feedback to top clubs, leagues, and youth academies.
We are looking for talented and motivated developers who can drive the process of encoding our deep knowledge of football into a software platform. This will require not only software development skills but the ability to learn from domain experts and deconstruct their knowledge. You will use your technical skills to turn human mastery into artificial intelligence.
This is a greenfield project and you will play a critical role in its success, with leadership opportunities available as the team grows. We value individual ownership and responsibility over projects, a healthy approach to velocity and technical debt, and providing constant feedback to each other. We are a new company with a small but growing team, backed by strong strategic partners from the football industry, providing an opportunity for every contributor to shape our culture.
We work mainly in Python, powered by Google Cloud Platform. Other components of our stack are yet to be determined, so you can bring your own talents to the table. Although you are not responsible for providing the football expertise, an enthusiasm for the game and desire to gain a deeper understanding will be beneficial.
Optima Sport System’s offices are located in Sant Joan Despí, easily accessible by public transport from Barcelona proper.
We are open to candidates at all levels, so salary range will be commensurate with experience. To apply, follow the link and select either "Junior Backend Developer, Analytics" or "Senior Backend Developer, Analytics" (the exact title is open for discussion).
