FloSports, a leader and innovator in digital sports media, is currently seeking a Senior Product Manager to join our Live Scoring and Results Data team.

 

About the Team: At FloSports, we aim to elevate our events and content with rich sport data, at every point in the event lifecycle: before, during, and after. Before the event, we’ll display sport data in the form of team and athlete rankings, seedings, and entries. During the event, the data your team collects will power on-screen scoring graphics, live scores throughout the apps, personalized notifications, automated recordings, and more. Post-event, your data helps tell the story of the event, and powers engaging features like Rankings.

The Live Scoring and Results team is responsible for sourcing data from various sports, building an organized data ingestion system, and making this data readily available to our various customer-facing teams (the FloSports apps).


About the Role: You’ll be the product owner of the back end systems powering Live Scoring and Results at FloSports. As a senior level product manager, you’ll develop a shared vision and thoughtfully prioritized roadmap for sport data at FloSports, aligning engineers, designers, and your fellow product managers. 

You’ll maintain a strong understanding of how our multiple complex systems interact, and ensure it scales as we add more sports and variables into the systems.

In order to deliver authentic experiences to niche sports audiences, you’ll rely on your natural curiosity, diving into passionate communities to gain a deep understanding of scoring and results for that sport. From hot laps in racing, repechages in jiu-jitsu, and the differences between a raw score, performance score, and event score in Cheerleading, you will become an expert in the sports we cover to generate clear product requirements for your team. 

You’ll build strong relationships with your teammates and “customers” across the company, and use clear communication to manage work dependencies and timelines. You’ll manage relationships, even when you aren’t able to say yes to everyone.

 

Our company is based in Austin, TX. This position is open to fully remote candidates located in the US.  

 

Requirements

  • 5+ years of experience in Product Management
  • A natural curiosity. Eager to learn and dive into details of new territory in order to create clear product requirements
  • Highly organized, with a knack for crystal clear documentation and user stories
  • Ability to think holistically and connect the right dots between many different systems
  • Creative problem solver. Able to proactively identify real obstacles and work with a team to find effective solutions.
  • Ability to analyze and understand business impact of competing ideas and initiatives. You’re a ruthless prioritizer amongst a long list of options, ensuring your team is focused on the highest impact items.
  • Ability to quickly absorb technical concepts and communicate them to a non-technical audience.

  • Top-notch written and verbal communication skills. Understanding of how to adapt your language for the audience. Comfortable communicating with everyone from the C-Suite down.
  • Smart, confident, highly competent, and humble. An all-around good person.

Bonus Points: 

  • Prior experience working with data
  • Passion for sports
  • Experience in media, especially OTT media is a plus

  • Understanding of best practices of effective and scalable API development

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.
