About the Team
Fanatics Collectibles is a new company working at the intersection of collectibles and technology. Backed by some of the best investors, sports properties and operators in the world, we are integrating with Fanatics’ global digital sports platform – which includes 900 sports relationships and more than 81 million reachable fans - to reimagine the collectibles business for the 21st century.
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 building a multi-product ecosystem – live auctions, real time buying, streaming and more – and are looking for Fullstack Software Engineers to build our first products. Fullstack engineers feel comfortable working across the entire stack to implement features for our ever-growing product suite. Maybe you don’t like being boxed into a specific specialty or maybe you love the entire software design process from delightful UI interactions to data modeling. Either way, we work in collaborative, cross functional teams and are looking for engineers who can “fill the gap” - taking ownership of features and products that may oscillate between front and backend intensive work.
Today, our stack is Elixir / Phoenix, Live view (server rendered HTML over websockets) and Postgres. Needless to say, we’re big fans of Elixir, but as the company grows and we take on new challenges we won’t shy away from using the right tool for the job.
