What you’ll get from us 

Continual knowledge-sharing, learning and support within teams is critical to how we work. We expect our Engineers to push themselves to upskill, and Football Radar supports this enthusiastically. We do not have an environment where your tools and processes are dictated, but the business of course does drive requirements. Exactly how this functionality is delivered is the responsibility of the Engineering team. 

We have a flat organisational structure to give our teams’ exposure to all stakeholders within the business and we always aim to keep employees knowledgeable about our aims and future direction. 

Whilst we never specifically ask for an interest in football, if the game is a large part of your life, Football Radar can be an extra special place to work. If working with the world’s leading experts appeals to you, it’s likely you’ll find what you’re looking for with us. 

We are committed to looking after our employees. Our two full-time chefs, team social events, and health and wellbeing initiatives shows our promise to encourage a social environment that’s for everyone.
