Why join us?

  • Led by an All-Star team, founded by Chad Hurley (Co-founder, ex-CEO YouTube), Nick Swinmurn (Founder, former CEO Zappos) and Ken Martin (Co-Founder and former Chief Creative Officer, Blitz Media Agency).

  • Just closed an $8.5M seed round backed by investors with a deep understanding of sports. SignalFire, Sapphire Sports, Founders Fund, 49'ers, SV Angel and more.

  • The $1T sports industry is comprised of 5B sports fans. Among these, 2B “social fans” represent the largest, most lucrative segment of the population. GreenPark Sports believes these fans behave fundamentally differently than previous generations, we're helping to unlock their potential.

  • We're building a team composed of the best. Wether it's coming from start-ups building systems that scale to millions of users, game developers who've worked on AAA titles for companies like Blizzard, Riot Games, Activision or retired Athletes, you'll be working with a pool of exceptional talent.

Engineering at GreenPark Sports

Engineering team and processes

We split into a Front-End engineering team building our game in Unity and the Systems Services team responsible for our backend and micro-services architecture. As a small team, we're loosely structured where each team member has their area of responsibility and knows their end goal and is charging towards it. We're highly collaborative, wether it's working in a small team on a specific feature set, or with the game and UX designers to understand the requirements. As a startup, we're growing and evolving fast - you'll cope well with uncertainty and look forward to bringing your own knowledge to help solve big problems.

Technical Challenges

Processing live sports and esports data and tracking events in realtime, matching this against the game play events we care about and providing interesting information to our players.

Working out what constitutes an interesting event for our players. For example, Klay Thompson coming off the bench to score 2-points for the Warriors is not interesting. Klay Thompson coming off the bench to score 2-points for the Warriors after being injured, giving them the lead in a critical game is highly interesting.

Projects you might work on
  • Building the referee service that controls our gameplay. Responsible for working in with the live game data and matching it to events for players.

  • 3D animation clothing and avatar system, managing an extensive production pipeline, allowing the creative team to review and approve gear for inclusion in the game.

  • Calculating a dynamic stats system for various sports and eSports which we can use internally to look up and calculate events at any period of time throughout a match, often includes somewhat esoteric stats outside the normal box score you might see in a normal sports game.
