Software Engineer

Job description

StatsBomb is looking for a highly skilled and experienced Software Engineer to lead the continued design and implementation of the data collection pipeline in our growing company. 


The role will focus on developing our existing systems architecture to ensure we can manage the vast demands of data quantity, algorithmic processing, and stringent SLA’s to demanding customers including Media and broadcasters who need accurate data in real-time.


We will consider experience across a range of systems architecture and software development frameworks and a proven track record of picking up new technologies quickly. We are a new, fast-growing company, with an incredibly full roadmap and are therefore looking for someone who is driven, self-motivated, flexible, and comfortable working at a fast pace delivering projects in an iterative manner, in relatively short timelines. 


We are looking for experienced engineers who are equally happy designing technical systems architecture as they are rolling up their sleeves and getting stuck into coding and testing. As our team grows, we will want to hire additional team members across the UK, US, and Egypt so the ability to source and nurture talent is critical to our growth.


The ideal candidate will have an interest in sports, data analytics, as well as an excellent technical portfolio.


The position is ideally based full-time in our office in Cairo, Egypt, but we are flexible and you can work from home as long as you are not required to work from the office.
