PandaScore is the e-sports data provider. We collect real-time data about competitive matches on video games such as League of Legends, Overwatch or Dota 2. Then, we deliver it in real-time as odds & statistics through a REST API and Websockets to the e-sports ecosystem. We currently work with worldwide media, professional teams and score apps to enable the growth of their business with our data!
To collect real time data from e-sports, PandaScore extracts raw data from live video feeds (Twitch, Youtube Live, …) using a Computer Vision & Deep Learning based software architecture.
PandaScore has been expanding to e-sports betting market for a few months now to become the first data provider in one of the most developed markets in the industry.
Why are we doing all this? 🤷
Sports is huge, no spoiler there. More recently video games have changed the way we experience entertainment (through streaming, easy matchmaking, and so on) and are reaching the same standard as traditional sports. E-sports is experiencing the same evolution as traditional sports has gone through over past decades, but in just a few years. The growth is truly incredible.
At PandaScore we want to help the growth of the industry by providing data and odds to businesses. We want to have the most reliable and accurate data so products can be built in e-sport with the same, if not better, experience as sports. Our customers are using our data in an automatic and real-time way. This means that if we fail in any way there will be a big impact in a few milliseconds. As such, building robust products is key.
We also strongly believe that our combination of AI and Computer Vision can one day make a huge impact not just on e-sports, but on traditional sports as well. We are not closing any doors.
To facilitate PandaScore’s growth, we are looking for the next PandaScore’s engineering manager ! Your role will be to manage and provide agile leadership to the engineering team on a day to day basis in order to drive all technical projects and ensure correct and fast delivery.
You will be responsible for the overall planning, execution, success of complex technical project and work closely with the CTO and the product manager to ensure that the right stuff is done in the right time, from the right people.
You will develop and improve software development process, share best practices and spread a strong engineering culture with your team to create the best engineering organization.
And as a team leader, you will have the opportunity to recruit your next developers and compose your dream team!
To be the next PandaScore’s engineering manager you will need a wide ranged tech culture, and have already demonstrated some leadership skills in the past (because as a manager it does matter).
You’ll need a technical vision of all PandaScore’s products, features (by having a large picture of the whole product, from the frontend to the server infrastructure) and some experience with high SLA services, best practices around testing and verification.
PandaScore’s products & features are mainly used by our customer’s developers. So you will need a good understanding of their needs and empathy at any price.
As we are evolving in a fast-paced environment & market, you will have to handle multiple competing priorities easily and to work under pressure (yes, challenges will be numerous).
We are definitely a tech company but we do not only have developers or data scientists here. So to be understood by the whole company, in the best manner, you will need to articulate ideas with both technical and non-technical audience.
