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 a talented and motivated developer who can lead the process of developing our applications. Initially, this role will require you to take the lead on several small webapps for internal use by Optima engineers and technicians. Later, you will be a crucial member of the application team implementing our primary product.
We use Python for most of our stack, although for self-contained projects, you will have freedom in choosing a technology.
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.
As one of our first developers, you must be driven and independent, able to make technological decisions and justify them to the team. You must be able to make progress on your own, but also assist with hiring and onboarding new developers in the future. Your contributions, not only to our codebase but also to our organization, will be crucial to our success.
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 of experience, and so the salary range will be commensurate with experience.
Bachelor’s degree, preferably in computer science or a related field.
2+ years experience in development.
High level of comfort with Python or expertise in another backend language.
Strong personal projects or leadership experience.
Clear vision of the software development process.
Creativity and initiative.
Fluency in English.
