We Want to Hire You

By Ted Knutson

StatsBomb is currently experiencing explosive growth and has sailed through the startup phase straight into the scaling phase. 

In order to do that, we need great people.

Like you.

Why Should You Work At StatsBomb?

Because you love new challenges.
We are shaping the future of data in sport. That includes new technology, new visualisations, and completely new ways of thinking about the game. That is challenging work that changes on a regular basis, but if you are the type of person that loves figuring out new things, StatsBomb is a great place to be.

Stock Options.
Nearly every one of our employees receives stock options in their first year on the job. We believe strongly that our employees deserve a piece of the business they are helping to build, and our compensation plans reflect that.

Our revenues have more than doubled each of the last two years. If we can keep this up – and honestly, we are just getting started – it’s easy to see how this can turn into significant additional earnings over time.

Space to grow.
One of the best things about working in a young startup that is growing is that new positions open up all the time. This means employees who excel have plenty of scope to move up in the organisation as the company grows.

Speaking of space, we are about to move into a brand new office before the end of the year, just outside the train station in Bath, fully equipped with a kitchen, free coffee, plus bicycle storage and showers.

Only 3 Days in the Office per week.
We hire highly motivated individuals, and in return we are able to offer huge work-life flexibility to our employees. Gathering the team together remains important, but most of our employees find quiet working days at home hugely valuable. Office hours are also somewhat flexible, removing much of the daily stress from commutes, school runs, etc that you get from more strict companies.

You want to work around incredibly talented people.
You can’t build a great company without a great team of people. We have that right now and already need more.  By joining our team, you get to work with some of the best people in the sports data field on a daily basis. 

You also get to work with some of the biggest football clubs in the world.

Bath is gorgeous.
Bath is a UNESCO World Heritage city and one of the best cities in the UK for quality of life and work/life balance. It’s only 15 mins by train from Bristol, 30 minutes by train from Swindon, and an hour from Reading and Cardiff.

Job Openings
Our careers page is a work in progress, but expect to see new job postings frequently in the coming weeks.

In addition to the 2 Junior Front End Developer roles and the Accounts Administrator role currently listed, we will also have full-time positions for

UI Designer
Digital Project Manager
Computer Vision Developer
Graphic Designer
Junior Data Scientist
Quantitative Football Analyst

If you have ever wanted to come work at StatsBomb, now is the time. Even before a job description, if you think your skill set fills these titles, please send a CV to careers@statsbomb.com.

To fill these roles, you will need a valid UK work permit and to work in Bath three days a week.

Ted Knutson
CEO, StatsBomb
