Job description

The role

For us every day is match day. We strive to win the championship - day and night - we compete against lags, bugs, monoliths and sometimes our very own new platform and product features. We value a balance between strong software craftsmanship, agility and ability to deliver. In this role you will be responsible for the development and delivery of Eleven Sports’ Global Platform features. Together with your peers you will own the direction and the success of the platform.


In Tech & Product, we are organised in quite independent teams that deliver value to customers on their respective domains. As our teams are tasked with very specific challenges to solve, the teams are also empowered to use the technology that best fits the challenges. We have an open culture, in which we, among others, value openness, respect (for each other and our customer), diversity and humility. We empower ownership, responsibility and continuous personal development.

Job requirements

At ELEVEN we're committed to hiring the person who we believe is the strongest candidate for the position. However, research indicates that women frequently only apply for roles where they believe they satisfy 100% of the role requirements. We don't want anyone to feel discouraged in applying for any of our vacancies, so if you believe you meet 60% or more of the criteria, we definitely encourage you to apply.


What you’ll do:

  • You’ll be working in one of our cross functional teams, creating immediate value to our customers;

  • Together with your peers and business teams, you will design, develop and deliver features and experiments;

  • Together with our UI/UX designers, you will translate those amazing designs into a fully functional user experience

  • Together with other frontend engineers you will continuously increase the quality of our frontends;


What you need to succeed:

  • 3+years of experience with relevant technology

  • Extensive knowledge of HTML, CSS, Javascript / ES6

  • Knowledge and experience in developing frontends in React

  • Experience in working and interfacing with REST APIs, although not a requirement, it’s definitely a plus if you also worked with GraphQL APIs

  • You have experience in build pipelines and version control

  • Experience with Typescript is a plus

About Eleven Sports


ELEVEN is a global network of LIVE and non-live sport and entertainment content – from the world’s biggest sports events to the best longtail sport, to award-winning original programming.

The state of the art technology available via our newly launched global sports platform elevensports.com (previously MyCujoo.TV), which allows anyone to stream from a device as simple as a mobile phone, revolutionised football broadcasting. Our crazy idea to transform every single match into a live broadcast became the world's largest live football streaming platform. With an initial focus on niche-premium and longtail sports, our ambitions are now even bigger.

In 2020 we also delivered our newest product, MyCujoo Live Services (MCLS), a highly scalable live streaming solution built on the tech stack powering ELEVEN Sports. Developed for rights owners in sports and beyond, MCLS equips content creators with the technology and tools to provide their fans with the most powerful, authentic, and engaging live streaming experiences.
