Who are we?
Fanatics are global leaders in licenced sports merchandise. We work in partnership with some of the biggest names in sport.
Our partners include Real Madrid, PSG, Manchester United, Formula 1, NBA, and the NFL.
Our e-commerce platform transacts in over 190 countries, 17 languages, and 14 currencies. It powers all Fanatics territories outside of North America and Canada, so the scope is vast.
Our ambition is to be bigger though. We aim to dominate the licenced sports merchandise industry over the coming years.
Why are we hiring?
$1bn of investment from the Japanese telecoms giant SoftBank is fuelling our team expansion, with 50% growth in IT planned for 2018.
This will push the platform to support more international warehouses, to be more localised, and to perform better around the globe.
There are some significant technical challenges here, demanding skilled engineers.
Who are we looking for?
Our passionate, self-organising, collaborative teams take pride in delivering quality and value at pace. It takes polished and pragmatic development skills, good agile working practices.
It takes a tonne of collaboration. We favour discipline over ceremony, so you won’t find any red tape, and we strive to improve everything that we do, in every way that we do it.
There’s a lot of tech, but a decent developer or engineer can pick anything up given half a chance, so we won't list all the sundry libraries / frameworks.
Here are the essential headlines you should be able to cover :
Of course, you’ll need to love clean code. You should live and breathe SOLID principles, and practice proper OO development.
You should understand the power and importance of TDD, and appreciate that value of a good suite of unit and integration tests.
Our best of breed CI pipeline doesn’t deliver much without them.
For us, DevOps isn’t a job title, but a series of concepts encouraging agility in development, infrastructure and operations.
Our goal is for the entire dev team to own it. After all, when delivering value to the business, how you make your code is as important as how it gets into production.
It is something everyone in development should care about.
