About the project

Are you a talented engineer looking for an exciting opportunity to progress your career and show off your skills? Do you love tackling problems and have an ability to take ownership of solutions? Can you shape the experience of over 150m users globally?

Backed by private equity funding, we are scaling our team in Katowice to take our successful brands Goal, Spox and Voetbalzone to the next level. We want to revolutionise our platform and products and are on the lookout for dynamic team players to help take us to the next level.

With 300 permanent employees across the world, FC is a diverse, disruptive, brave, dynamic, agile and fun organization. Our work-hard, play-hard attitude supports these values – with the football fan always front of mind.

From KO to the final whistle, we want to own the football space… be a part of it!

Our teams, based in Katowice, use both PHP and NodeJS to build our backend systems, so we expect experience in these areas. However, we hire tech-agnostically as we believe in hiring problem solvers!

We are extremely ambitious, and we are going to put a lot of interesting challenges in front of you. We will put our entire portfolio into the cloud, harnessing best in class techniques and technologies to build a world-class platform from the ground up. We will continually migrate elements of our existing applications from day one, delivering fresh business value at every step.

  • In-depth knowledge of SDLC in a lean and agile development environment

  • Polyglot across several programming languages and paradigms, especially Object-Oriented Programming and Functional Programming

  • Strong knowledge of data structures and algorithms that leads to high-performant and maintainable code
