    About Football Whispers

    Football Whispers is a sports media and technology company looking to deliver unrivalled analysis in a digestible format to football fans across the globe. Started in 2016 with an initial focus on football, Football Whispers brings a deep level of analysis and understanding of the beautiful game to the everyday football fan. Starting the world’s first football transfer predictor – to calculate the likelihood of a transfer actually happening - and now also moving into player performance analysis, player value predictions as well as predictive line ups, Football Whispers covers it all.

    As we transition into other sports, we are looking to grow our team across many disciplines. We are a tech company at heart, and hence are looking to find like-minded individuals who are passionate about deconstructing sports performance but who also love to build wonderful products that both sports fans and our partners enjoy using.

    We pride ourselves on being forward thinking and using the right tech for the job. We value different perspectives and opportunities for the team to learn along the way. Ultimately we do what we do so that sports fans all over the world can experience better quality content and analysis for their chosen sport.

    How we interview and hire

    We believe in being as open and transparent as we can - neither we nor you want any "buyers remorse" after you join the company.

    Our interview process begins with an introductory call to help you better understand the opportunity, give us a glimpse into your interests and motivations, and help both of us decide if you might be a good fit with the Football Whispers team. If we both agree that we want to move forward, then you will conduct a technical screen with one of our Engineers so you can show us your skills in more depth.

    If you have an up to date GitHub history and/or Stack Overflow profile then we may be willing to skip the more technical aspects of the hiring process. Without these then we may ask you to complete a technical assessment intended to help us best see if your skills fit with our needs.

    Throughout this process we will act professionally and transparently. After all, we never know who you might be able to recommend to Football Whispers, regardless of whether we end up working together.

    One more thing

    Thanks for reading this far! One of the reasons we are hiring is that we need to completely rebuild our site... so please don't judge us on what's there at present :)
