Fanatics is building a leading global digital sports platform. The company ignites the passions of global sports fans and maximizes the presence and reach for hundreds of sports partners globally by offering innovative products and services across Fanatics Commerce, Fanatics Collectibles, and Fanatics Betting & Gaming, allowing sports fans to Buy, Collect and Bet. Through the Fanatics platform, sports fans can buy licensed fan gear, jerseys, lifestyle and streetwear products, headwear, and hardgoods; collect physical and digital trading cards, sports memorabilia, and other digital assets; and bet as the company builds its Sportsbook and iGaming platform. Fanatics has an established database of over 100 million global sports fans, a global partner network with over 900 sports properties, including major national and international professional sports leagues, teams, players associations, athletes, celebrities, colleges, and college conferences, and over 2,000 retail locations, including its Lids retail business stores.
As a market leader with more than 18,000 employees, and hundreds of partners, suppliers, and vendors worldwide, we take responsibility for driving toward more ethical and sustainable practices. We are committed to building an inclusive Fanatics community, reflecting and representing society at every level of the business, including our employees, vendors, partners and fans. Fanatics is also dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities where we all live, work, and play through strategic philanthropic initiatives.
We are a startup building products to transform the trading card industry. We aren’t a startup in the traditional sense, though. While we are a small team building new products from the ground up, we also have the backing of Fanatics – the world’s largest sports merchandiser with over 900 sports relationships and more than 81 million reachable fans. We have exclusive licensing deals with the MLB, NFL and NBA and the products we build will be used by millions of trading cards fans from day 1. We are out to reinvent the trading card industry, which is a bold and ambitious mission.
What does this mean as a member of the engineering team?
We move fast. We have a lot to do and are looking for folks who will drive projects to completion with a sense of urgency, but not at the expense of quality, scalability and performance.
We think about scale. The trading card market is large and we will be the de facto entry point into the hobby.
We’re pragmatic. We embrace new technologies, but not just for the sake of it. We like server-rendered HTML, using a PaaS for deployments, and writing enough tests to give us confidence but not striving for code coverage numbers just for the sake of it.
We are product-focused. We’re building products that will reach millions and always tie our work back to how it will add value for our users.
We are reimagining the education, exploration and purchase experience for trading cards online. For far too long the customer has taken a back seat and trading cards have been presented similar to traditional eCommerce products when they are anything but traditional. We are looking for a Senior Front End Engineers to lead and support the effort in transitioning legacy web properties like topps.com to a modern headless architecture and set the technical foundations for future work.
Some things you may want to know about us:
- We’re a small team (growing fast!) and everyone wears lots of hats.
- We’re remote (Michigan, Colorado, New York, and more)
- We like to think about our product and the people using it – even when working on deeply technical projects, we’re continuously thinking about how our work impacts our UX and the goals of the business.
- We work hard, but not all the time. We have families that we like to spend time with.
- 7+ years of software engineering experience
- You’ve worked on consumer facing applications at scale
- You have a customer/user centric mindset
- You have experience in Headless front end architecture, bonus if in a commerce setting
- Significant experience with areas of our tech like React, React Native, Typescript, GraphQL, HTML & CSS, Design Systems & Component Libraries
- Proficiency in supporting eCommerce related implementations and integrations (CMS, Segment-GTM, Pixel Integration, Behavioral Data Collection & Event Tracking)
