Job Description

Job Description
Do you want to help create and build the best fantasy football experience in the world? Are you hands on with a problem-solving mindset and the drive to make it work? And you’d like to work with a skilled and dedicated team of football nuts that love what they’re doing? Then this is your dream job.

What are we building?
At Kickstox we have the modest goal of reinventing fantasy football and transforming it into a 24/7, real time game that allows football fans to meet, greet and compete. For this we have created the Kickstox exchange where users can trade fictional stocks of their favourite football players, check how they perform in real-time, compete in different competition formats and challenge their friends to prove them they know best about football, every day – every play!

Technical Heart at Kickstox
We need you to be the best of both worlds; a manager who takes complete control of the Tech team and also a creative, senior back-end developer that is not afraid to get his or her hands dirty. The foundations have been laid but the quest to expand and improve is never ending and for that we look to you. You are in charge of reaching the milestones, building responsive and elegant web applications, improve usability and customer experience and find solutions to the everyday challenges that come up.
You will have a small team of different skill sets to manage with a high probability of expansion in the near future.

Your skills:
A great sense of ownership and responsibility
Insightfulness and a hawk’s eye for detail
Constant drive to grow fast and improve yourself
A problem-solving mindset that thinks in solutions
Resourcefulness, thinking creatively and optimistically
Proven experience with managing multi-talented and multi-national teams
Project management with teams of varying technical skills using scrum protocols
Full professional command of English (Dutch is a pro)
Profound working knowledge with:
▪ Go
▪ Postgres(TimescaleDB)
▪ Redis
▪ RabbitMQ
▪ MQTT/Websocket
Our infrastructure runs over Google Cloud Platform using Docker, Kubernetes and Gitlab. And is provisioned by Ansible.

And a love for the beautiful game is definitely a pro!

Kickstox is located the centre of Amsterdam on the Keizersgracht and is part of the Nyenrode Incubator program. In this inspiring environment we work together with 8 other companies in an easy and welcoming atmosphere. A game of Ping-Pong for leisure and the Friday afternoon drinks are recurring events.

What can we offer
As a key part of the technical heart of the company you get the freedom to think and work out new functions. Ideas and suggestions are greatly appreciated and more importantly, they are listened to. We want to expand and rapidly conquer this market in the coming years. This offers opportunity for you to become included in the success of the company.
