Kognia Sports Intelligence is looking for a Full Stack Software Engineer with +2 years of relevant experience to help us build the next generation of Sports Technology.
As an integral part of our cross-functional application team, you would be working alongside other engineers, designers, product owners and football experts to build our core user-facing application.
In this role you would be building tools used by elite football coaches to analyse and improve their teams performances.
We are looking for candidates with a strong background in developing scalable, performant web applications from both frontend and backend, who can also contribute across a range of areas.
Our application is built on React in the frontend, and Java/Spring on the backend. We’re looking for someone with strong experience in at least one of these, who’s keen to learn the rest and contribute across the whole stack.
We are a young Barcelona-based startup funded by football industry leaders including superstars Xavi Hernández and Iker Casillas. Since opening our office in early 2019 with the founders plus 2 engineers, we have grown to 20+.
Our technology begins with video capture in the stadiums, detects player movements and actions, and delivers insights to coaches and players in the form of video clips with overlay illustrating high-level tactical concepts. In September 2020 we went into production with a closed beta and are now selling an MVP already leading the market in automated tactical analysis. We expect strong growth as we gain traction in the next months. We need your help to continue improving the features we offer to our users!
This position is currently mixed remote/office at the discretion of each individual and each team (these days, a typical engineer works from the office once per week, although there is a quite a variety). Although we are flexible on this point based on individual situations, there is a minor preference for candidates in the Barcelona area willing to occasionally commute to our office in Sant Joan Despí (20 minutes from Barcelona center).
