The view from our office at The Oval
Designer (UX, UI, broadcast)
CricViz is a cricket analytics company. We analyse highly detailed cricket data, then build products out of them. These include statistical models, predictive algorithms, new metrics, APIs and web tools we have built and sold to a growing customer base around the world. We now need a front-end developer to help build more products. We work with TV broadcasters like Sky in the UK, Foxtel in Australia, ICC, most of the major UK sport media and a couple of teams, helping to prepare their coaching staff with our detailed analysis.
Your role is to create new designs (probably in Sketch, but you will need a broad range of software experience) which best showcase our work to people in their homes. This might be designing a compelling new graphic for a broadcaster which pulls in one of our APIs, or working with our front-end developers to explore different designs for our charts. You will have a lot of autonomy, so an ability to work independently and have confidence in your skills is important; we want you to take ownership of design across the company, from rethinking our logo to exploring the design of our (or a client’s) app, or preparing a sales deck for an important client.
We have a lot of internal web tools which allow our editors to analyse the game in unparalleled detail, but these too need a designer’s eye to improve the look and feel. You’ll upload them to InVision and work with our product/devs to refine them. We’re also developing more and more graphics; we want a designer’s voice here, too. It’s a broad, exciting role – ideal for a university leaver, but we are open to all applicants.
We’re a small team of ten (mixture of editorial, developers, data science) often work remotely via Slack, but we do have space at our office (at The Oval cricket ground in south London) where we meet at least once a week. Hours are very flexible and we watch a lot of cricket. Obviously. You don’t need to love cricket, but an appreciation (or passion) of sport is probably needed.
We think we have the best job. If you think you’re keen, send us a note and let’s have a chat.
* We work at The Oval
* We talk about, analyse and geek-out over cricket all day long
* We have more data on the sport than anyone and have only scratched the surface of what is possible
* We have other sports on our horizon …
* Remote working is fine, provided you can attend meetings in London occasionally.
* No agencies
* We’d consider applicants outside the UK, within a reasonable timezone.
You don’t need to love cricket, but an appreciation of data and sport is essential: we need hard working people who love designing and are comfortable with deadlines.
If you’re a bit inexperienced, that’s fine – just show us what you can do, and send a link to your portfolio if you have one.
This is a full-time role, but we are also open to exceptional applicants who wish to work alongside existing university/college studies, with a view to exploring a more permanent role once the studies have been completed.
