Platform Engineer - Market leading analysis software


£30,000 - £45,000

I am working with a Manchester based team that specialise in sports analytics, who are hoping to disrupt the UK market with their platform.

The Business:

Utilising a combination of tools that harness everything from; Big Data and Machine Learning through to Computer Vision and Machine Learning - this platform offers a real technical challenge to the teams' developers and some amazing potential to both its end users.

This has made the business a global leader in real time tracking and a list of clients that range from sporting organisations in leagues ranging from the N.B.A. in the USA to E.P.L. here in the UK

Recently opening a new office, here in Manchester - this a great time to join this business as they plan to continue growing the UK team, opening real progression/ advancement opportunities for the right person.


You need to have the skills to work with a wide range of technologies ranging from OOP programming languages through to cloud and Dev-Ops technologies to be a good option for this team.

Given the nature of live sporting events, you'll also need to be able to troubleshoot and solve issues on the fly (sub three minutes) - so you'll need to be good under pressure and keen for a challenge! Having good communication skills is also a must as the role will have you working with an international team of developers and support staff in addition to your own teammates in the office.

This role will require you to work during major sporting events being shown in the UK - making your shift pattern fairly varied through the week and weekend at different times of the year.

Sound like something you might be interested in. Then check out the requirements below and get in touch if you are keen to find out more.

Technical requirements:

* 1 - 5 years commercial experience in object orientated programming with Python, Perl, Ruby, or Javascript (Node.js / Express.js / Next.js or similar)

* Linux or Unix


Additional skills / extras:
