Senior Software Engineer

Published date Posted on Indeed on Jan 12, 2022 (13 d ago)
Fanatics is building the leading global digital sports platform to ignite and harness the passions of fans, and maximize the presence and reach for hundreds of partners globally. Leveraging these long-standing partnerships, a database of more than 80 million global consumers and a trusted, recognizable brand name, Fanatics is expanding beyond its position as the global leader for licensed sports merchandise to now becoming a next-gen digital sports platform, featuring an array of offerings across the sports ecosystem.

The Fanatics family of companies currently includes Fanatics Commerce, a vertically-integrated licensed merchandise business that has changed the way fans purchase their favorite team apparel, jerseys, headwear and hardgoods through a tech-infused approach to making and quickly distributing fan gear in today’s 24/7 mobile-first economy; Candy Digital, a digital collectibles company that is partnering with prominent sports properties, including MLB and MLBPA, to build an official NFT ecosystem; Fanatics Trading Cards, a transformative company that is building a new model for the hobby and giving collectors an end-to-end trading cards experience; and Fanatics Betting & Gaming, a mobile betting, gaming and retail sportsbook platform. Additional ventures that will build out Fanatics’ footprint across the broader digital sports landscape will be rolled out soon. Fanatics’ partners include all major professional sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, NASCAR, MLS, PGA) and hundreds of collegiate and professional teams, which include several of the biggest global soccer clubs.
As a market leader with more than 8,000 employees, and hundreds of partners, suppliers, and vendors worldwide, we take responsibility for driving toward more ethical and sustainable practices. We are committed to building an inclusive Fanatics community, reflecting and representing society at every level of the business, including our employees, vendors, partners and fans. Fanatics is also dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities where we all live, work, and play through strategic philanthropic initiatives.
At Fanatics, we’re a diverse, passionate group of employees aiming to ignite pride and passion in the fans we outfit, celebrate and support. We recognize that diversity helps drive and foster innovation, and through our IDEA program (inclusion, diversity, equality and advocacy) at Fanatics we provide employees with tools and resources to feel connected and engaged in who they are and what they do to support the ultimate fan experience.

About the Team
Fanatics Trading Cards is a new company working at the intersection of trading cards and technology. Backed by some of the best investors, sports properties and operators in the world, we are integrating with Fanatics’ global digital sports platform – which includes 900 sports relationships and more than 81 million reachable fans - to reimagine the trading card business for the 21st century.

We are a startup building products to transform the trading card industry. We aren’t a startup in the traditional sense, though. While we are a small team building new products from the ground up, we also have the backing of Fanatics – the world’s largest sports merchandiser with over 900 sports relationships and more than 81 million reachable fans. We have exclusive licensing deals with the MLB, NFL and NBA and the products we build will be used by millions of trading cards fans from day 1. We are out to reinvent the trading card industry, which is a bold and ambitious mission.

What does this mean as a member of the engineering team?

  • We move fast. We have a lot to do and are looking for folks who will drive projects to completion with a sense of urgency, but not at the expense of quality, scalability and performance.
  • We think about scale. The trading card market is large and we will be the de facto entry point into the hobby.
  • We’re pragmatic. We embrace new technologies, but not just for the sake of it. We like server-rendered HTML, using a PaaS for deployments, and writing enough tests to give us confidence but not striving for code coverage numbers just for the sake of it.
  • We are product-focused. We’re building products that will reach millions and always tie our work back to how it will add value for our users.

The Role

  • We are building a multi-product ecosystem – live auctions, real time buying, streaming and more – and are looking for Senior Software Engineers to build our first products and set the technical foundations for future work.
  • Today, our stack is Elixir / Phoenix, Live view (server rendered HTML over websockets) and Postgres. Needless to say, we’re big fans of Elixir, but as the company grows and we take on new challenges we won’t shy away from using the right tool for the job.

Some indicators that this role may be a good fit for you:

  • You like ownership and autonomy – you’re the kind of person who gets a dopamine hit from shipping working code that you’ve helped usher through from “fuzzy business need” to a fully functional feature.
  • You think about how your work fits into the broader goals of the engineering and product organization – we need folks who are actively looking for opportunities to help the broader engineering organization be better and more efficient.
  • You get excited about real time events, websockets, and the technical challenges that come along with scaling those technologies.

Some things you may want to know about us:

  • We’re a small team (growing fast!) and everyone wears lots of hats.
  • We’re remote (Michigan, Colorado, New York, and more)
  • We like to think about our product and the people using it – even when working on deeply technical projects, we’re continuously thinking about how our work impacts our UX and the goals of the business.
  • We work hard, but not all the time. We have families that we like to spend time with.

Additional indications that this is the right role for you

  • 8+ years of software engineering experience
  • You’ve worked on consumer facing applications at scale
  • You like thinking about service design and defining encapsulation boundaries
  • Experience with SQL databases (you may even love Postgres as much as we do)
