Job Title: iOS/Android Developers
Job location: Pittsburgh, PA
Employment Type: Full-Time Job
We are the leading mobile developer for sports teams in the United States. We are experiencing a period of significant growth in our business, and are looking to add more full-time Android and iOS developers.
You will have the opportunity to work in a team of highly-skilled and experienced mobile developers, to work closely with designers, to innovate with new features (such as augmented reality, gaming, etc.), to interface with databases and official league/team statistics and editorial-content feeds, to interface with third-party SDKs and plug-ins, and more. You will have the opportunity to build and launch mobile apps that will be promoted by sports teams/stadiums as their OFFICIAL mobile app, and that will, therefore, be in the hands of millions of fans around the world.
You will have the opportunity to travel to stadiums/arenas around the country (and potentially overseas) to see how sports technology works behind the scenes. You will be exposed to the sports industry and all aspects of the company’s business, including licensing, sales, advertising, revenue generation, etc. You will work in a company that invests significantly in the training of its personnel, with staff being routinely encouraged to attend professional-development and training conferences to hone and extend their skills. Most of all, you will own equity in a company that has seen rapid growth in its client and user base.
Why are we hiring?
We are currently expanding rapidly to take on even more clients, more teams/stadiums and more sports, including soccer, rugby and live concerts overseas, and we are looking to grow our mobile team by adding full-time mobile developers to meet the demand for our products, and to bring even more innovations and features to our existing mobile offerings. Our company affords a close-knit entrepreneurial environment with every individual being exposed to, and having a tangible impact on, the company’s business.
Come join us, and you will be a part of developing the ultimate mobile experience for sports fans everywhere!
