Job Description

About GameChanger:

We’re on a mission to help every amateur sports team be more efficient, informed and connected. We created GameChanger, a software platform that changes the way amateur teams collect, manage and share information.

Our mobile app and website provide scorekeeping, stats and team management for the coaching staff – plus live game updates, stats and recap stories for families and fans. Millions of coaches, players, parents and fans in more than 100,000 team communities experienced GameChanger in 2014.

You will:

  • Get into to the nitty-gritty of what it takes to run a NoSQL datastore at scale, using techniques like sharding, replication and automated failover.
  • Build a sophisticated asynchronous messaging pipeline using technologies like Redis.
  • Take ownership of your code all the way to deployment on AWS.
  • Work on the next generation of our private and public HTTP APIs, taking on problems like device sync, conflict detection, OAuth and caching.
  • Write the best code of your life using Python, Tornado, Node.js and occasionally some browser-side Coffeescript.
  • Write automated unit, functional, and end-to-end tests.

We’re looking for people with great programming fundamentals who are excited about what we do. Experience with any of the following is a plus:

  • Python
  • NoSQL databases, especially MongoDB and Redis
  • Familiarity with HTTP and REST API principles
  • Node.js
  • LISP
  • Asynchronous queue processing topologies
