Front End Developer – Belfast (£35k - £45k)
Live sports events are changing. Social distancing will be with us for some time.
The way sports bodies will engage with audiences will now have to evolve.
It just so happens that the next level of audience engagement during live sporting events is already here.
And they have set up a technical team here in Belfast!
This is a new overlay technology for the next generation of audience engagement for broadcast and rights holders.  The solution will use Machine Learning to analyse sports data to drive viewers interactions and challenges.
Broadcasters can now bring a new level of vibrancy and excitement to their audiences through live predictions, polls, votes and more over the top of broadcast video content - live, replay and highlights.
During lockdown there were no live sports, however, the company still moved forward, and they were able to test this technology with a major sports body using archived footage
The founder is a serial entrepreneur who has led five start-ups from conception to successful businesses. In the past, he has secured paid partnerships with top sports organisations such as Real Madrid, Chelsea, and Manchester City, so he has the contacts to make this a success.
They already have a full stack developer, DevOps Engineer, UX/UI Engineer, Android Developer and Content Creator in place as well as a highly experienced CTO.
In the summer they hired the first tech professional who is based in Belfast and they now have five live positions including a Front-End Developer.
They are looking for a Front-End Developer to take ownership of the existing web dashboards (written in ReactJs).
You will be responsible for fixing issues, adding new features, and maintaining the web dashboards. Experience with TypeScript is also required, to be able to help maintain and improve the web SDKs.
You should be an experienced Front-End Developer with knowledge of multiple front-end languages and libraries (ReactJs, TypeScript, HTML, CSS, ES5/6). You should have some background in Redux and experience using REST API’s.
Working with a small team of engineers and a driven product owner, the owner believes that the key to success is employing smarter people and then let them do their jobs.
Your ideas will be respected and listened to as the team drives the platform forward. Not only is a very competitive salary on offer but you will be given equity in the business.

Gareth will be in touch soon.
