WE EXIST TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE OF ATHLETES AND TEAMS

Our mission is to improve the performance of athletes and teams, which we do by engineering the premier technology platform for sport. We've been at the forefront of sports technology and science since 2006 - we don't just work in the sporting industry, we are actively changing its future.  Our solutions are designed to help athletes and coaches “play smart” in a world where 1% can literally mean the difference between winning and losing.

We work with over 3,000 teams around the world, empowering coaches, managers and trainers in premier teams in the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLS, EPL, AFL, NRL, NCAA and more. We provide the information they need to optimise athletes’ health, game-day readiness, and performance, as well as in-game tactics.  Our solutions include wearable technology, video analytics, and athlete monitoring solutions, and we are passionate about helping sports organizations at all levels to better scout, recruit, teach, and win.

WE WANT PEOPLE WHO ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT PROVIDING AMAZING SERVICE

We are currently evolving Catapult's historic portfolio of task-specific products into a comprehensive platform capable of delivering value across an entire elite sports organization.  We have created this new role to work with stakeholders at our most key accounts, to ensure they are getting the most out of their relationship with us.

You are an enthusiastic self-starter who loves working with customers to build solutions for their problems. You are observant, naturally curious and a quick learner.  You can think on your feet, you are adept at recognizing and understanding customer problems, and you use data to inform your decision making and recommendations.  You are highly organized and have the ability to  keep multiple projects moving forward simultaneously.

  • Demonstrated experience developing customer solutions based on an understanding of their needs ("customer first" approach)
  • Previous consulting or consultative selling experience would be ideal

  • Familiarity with web technologies (deployment, maintenance, debugging) including REST APIs
  • Experience with at least 1 programming language (R, SQL, Java, Python, JavaScript, etc. ); this role requires scripting, macros, R / DB queries, and the like, as you will in most cases need to play a hands-on role in building/delivering the customer solutions you develop.
