    Backed by YCombinator, Greylock Partners, and Riot Games, Blitz Esports is a tech and media startup focused on bridging the gap between esports fandom and personal gameplay. In less than a year, we built one of the premier media publications in esports, providing quality learning content and expert strategy analysis for gamers worldwide — and we’re just getting started.

    Our next endeavor is an exciting new coaching app that uses computer vision to help gamers make better decisions. We’re combining the best of expert-crafted tips and data-driven insights into one seamless companion experience.

    To do this, we need to make sure we’re grabbing the right data, analyzing it intelligently, and reliably displaying it on an intuitive interface.

    That’s where you come in.
