About GameChanger:

GameChanger contributes to the life-changing impact of sports.

We believe that Sports Matter because they inspire leadership, teamwork, toughness, commitment and confidence—critical life lessons that have the power to propel young athletes toward meaningful futures.

We also understand that without its coaches, parents and volunteers, organized youth sports simply would not exist. We celebrate those tireless heroes, we thank them, and above all else, we make it our mission to help them do what they do best.

GameChanger is a mobile platform for amateur sports communities. Our scoring app delivers coaching insights and live fan updates for over 150,000 teams.

We’re a team of 50 here at GC. We’re headquartered in downtown Manhattan and are proud to be part of the Dick’s Sporting Goods family.

This system will make our data useful across our entire company – especially for financial reporting, business metrics, and marketing support. You’ll be responsible for maintaining and operating our existing data warehouse, as well as extending our data analytics platform to enable new use cases and analyses.

You will:

  • Design and build our analytics data stores
  • Work closely with Data Analysts, Application Developers, Product Management and Marketing

  • Strong software engineering fundamentals, including experience in several high-level programming languages

Optional Experience:

  • Apache Kafka, Amazon Redshift, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB
  • Traditional SQL data warehouses
  • Hadoop or other distributed map-reduce systems

The Culture:

User First

  • Listen. Be empathetic. Stop and ask yourself: “Will this help the user?”

Less is More

  • Limit features, initiatives, copy, partners, meetings, emails, expenses and excuses.

Be a Good Teammate

  • Be selfless. Do the dirty work. Admit mistakes. Communicate honestly and directly. Celebrate wins.

Challenge Yourself

  • Seize opportunities to learn and grow. If you get better, we get better.

Think Big

  • Focus on the long term. Set high standards. Be intolerant of status quo.

Start Today

  • Move fast. Take calculated risks. Do today what others won’t so tomorrow we can do what others can’t.

The Perks:

  • Being part of a team of genuinely kind individuals dedicated to improving the lives of our customers and our employees.
  • Awesome Ikea desks that will soon be traded in for contemporary furniture at our awesome new Tribeca digs.
  • Benefits including medical, vision, prescription, dental, FSA/HRA, and coverage for family/dependants.
  • Commuter Benefits
