FloSports, a direct-to-consumer subscription-based sports media company, is currently looking for a Front-End Engineer to join our expanding team. At FloSports, you will be joining the MileSplit team to create and integrate with a custom application that interacts with backend timing software to collect and display real-time results impacting millions of track & field fans.

Ideally, this position will reside in Orlando, Florida, but we are open to hiring a qualified remote candidate.  

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • As a full-stack engineer, you will be expected to have a familiarity with both front end and backend technologies and best practices.
  • For front end responsibilities, you should have knowledge of responsive design techniques to create compelling experiences, with a mobile-first mindset, using the Angular framework (version 9+). This will be a single-page application that displays real-time results and timing data.
  • On the back end, you will integrate with various track & field timing software and systems, create RESTful API endpoints with JSON, and work with databases such as MySQL and Firestore. Our APIs are built with TypeScript, Node, Express, and NestJS.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Have proficiency in HTML, CSS, and a modern JavaScript framework that promotes reusable component-based architectures such as Angular, React, or Vue.
  • Experience using CSS preprocessors like LESS and SASS.
  • Enjoy using JavaScript everywhere (both client and server) and have built applications with Node with frameworks such as Express and Nest.
  • Proficient in consuming and building RESTful APIs with JSON and CRUD.
  • Familiar with the sports of track & field, cross country, and road running.

 

DESIRED

  • Love elegance and power of TypeScript.
  • Experience with the Firebase stack including RTDB, Firestore, Cloud Functions, etc.
  • Worked with NoSQL databases such as Mongo, Couch, DynamoDB, and especially Firestore or Firebase RTDB. Know when these solutions are appropriate and their pluses and minuses versus relational databases.
  • Familiarity with best practices and standards for UX across a broad range of devices. Should thoroughly understand and execute concepts such as mobile-first, progressive enhancement, graceful degradation, adaptive and responsive design--and know the differences between each.
  • Have written and appreciate the importance of unit and functional tests, but willing to put results and hitting goals ahead of having perfect test coverage.
  • Deliver tested & performant features through an iterative approach: building, measuring, and learning.
  • Believe there is nothing more beautiful than elegantly written code, but also recognize it might not be perfect on its first pass. Instead, know that through micro refactoring you should leave it better than you found it each time you touch it.
  • Think on your feet, be able to work collaboratively on a team, and have a great passion for technology and creating amazing products.
  • Experience with Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud.
  • Have used caching technology like Redis or similar key-value stores.
  • Experience with PHP and frameworks like Symfony.
  • Experience with track & field timing software and systems such as Hytek, FinishLynx, FieldLynx, RaceTab, MeetPro, Ipico/Trident, Race Director, RunScore, etc.
  • Understand the sport of track & field from an athlete, coach, and/or timer perspective with an intimate knowledge of what the users of our software will be looking for on the user experience side.

An Insider's view of FloSports

What’s the vibe like in the office?

If I had to describe our office vibe I would definitely say team oriented, upbeat, fast paced, entrepreneurial and rooted in passion. Working with colleagues who were former athletes or who are die hard fans of a particular sport is so much fun. Every employee here approaches their role as a member of a team, with one objective, to win!

Melissa

Executive Administrative Assistant

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We needed an Android app and I had the opportunity to become an Android engineer. Not only have I learned a ton but I get to impact the experience of many users with everything I do.

Peter

Sr. Software Engineer

What does career growth look like on your team?

I love working at FloSports because I am constantly challenged and have endless opportunities to grow. Employees are encouraged to punch above their weight and take on responsibilities that will further their careers.

Mark

Corporate Controller

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Here are three things that work for me! Give notes that point to outcomes, not fixes. Be a problem umbrella, not a problem funnel, to remove distractions from the creative process. Ask the team, "are you excited about this piece yet?" and keep encouraging them to push it further until they are.

Ray

Chief Content Officer

What makes someone successful on your team?

At FloSports, we carefully test and measure changes to our platform. Successful members of our team excel in identifying potentially high impact opportunities, and working closely with their fellow team members to put them to the test. Then, they analyze and learn from the test results, always using data as their guide.
