Supersports International AB Stockholm

Role

The Story behind Supersports

Supersports International was founded in 2016 with the vision of developing football globally through technology. Supersports has four main business areas: Supercoach, Superplayer, Supercamp and Supercenter. Supercoach is a mobile app that is used in almost one hundred clubs around the world to develop players, teams and coaches on all levels. Its companion app Superplayer helps players to continue to improve between practices. The company also hosts training camps called Supercamp and have recently opened their first high-tech training facility in Stockholm called Supercenter.

The philosophy behind Supercoach comes from IF Brommapojkarna’s academy, which through focused improvement has managed to establish themselves as one of Europes greatest talent factories. Over the last years, they have fostered internationally acclaimed players such as Simon Tibbling, John Guidetti and Ludwig Augustinsson, to name a few. Today roughly 200 000 players – from kids to professionals – practice football this way.

With Supercoach anybody can practice football according to the Supercoach methodology. The app is designed to be used by coaches when preparing and during practices. It features a practice generator that will automatically select exercises that are appropriate for the team’s age group, taking into account how they progress over time and is also full of high-quality instructional videos with detailed instructions on how to perform them. It is opinionated yet flexible; clubs and coaches can make changes and introduce their own exercises as necessary.

Superplayer is for players what Supercoach is for coaches. Superplayer features exercises similar to those in Supercoach that players can do in their spare time between practices. It contains elements of gamification and has a social feed where players can post videos of themselves practicing, all in order to make solo practicing more fun.

About the role

Supersports is looking for someone to come in and take responsibility for the technical development of Supersports’s mobile, web and backend technologies. The role will also include planning and prioritizing together with the head of product and the rest of the tech team, as well as ensuring that the best technical approach and practices are applied in all phases of the application development lifecycle.

Who you are:

  • As their products are mainly mobile apps we are looking for someone who has worked as an iOS or Android developer or with web APIs in a cloud environment (such as any of Java/C#/Python/Ruby/Golang on for example Heroku/AWS/Azure/GCP).
  • You have experience with agile processes and how to create a good environment for developers and how to coach them to develop even better products.
  • While desirable, great enthusiasm for football is not a requirement.
