Job Description

About GameChanger:

We believe sports are important because they encourage leadership, teamwork, responsibility, and confidence—important life lessons that have the power to propel our youth toward meaningful futures. We recognize that without coaches, parents, and volunteers, organized youth sports could not exist. We celebrate those dedicated heroes and make it our mission to help them do what they do best by delivering live video streaming, scorekeeping, and team communication tools to over 550,000 youth sports teams.

So if you love sports, or building cool products is your sport, GameChanger is the team for you. We are a remote-first, dynamic tech company based in New York City, and are solving some of the biggest challenges in youth sports today.

You will report into our Analytics Engineering Manager.

What You'll Do:

  • Manage the measurement of new product features, transforming the data in the warehouse, and reporting the results.
  • Work with product managers to determine meaningful metrics.

  • Knowledge of statistical concepts (experimental design, confidence intervals, regression analysis, causal inference, A/B testing).
  • Some proficiency in Python, R, TypeScript, or other scripting languages.
  • Version control and GitHub.

Perks:

  • Work remotely or from our well-furnished, modern office in NYC's FiDi.
