About GameChanger:

We believe in the life-changing impact of youth sports because they encourage leadership, teamwork, responsibility, and confidence—important life lessons that have the power to propel our youth toward meaningful futures. We recognize that without coaches, parents, and volunteers, organized youth sports could not exist. By connecting kids and families through the medium of sports, we celebrate those dedicated heroes and make it our mission to cover every youth athlete like a pro by delivering live video streaming, scorekeeping, and team communication tools to over 550,000 youth sports teams.

So if you love sports, or building cool products is your sport, GameChanger is the team for you. We are a remote-first, dynamic tech company based in New York City, and we are solving some of the biggest challenges in youth sports today.

  • Our backend APIs are built with TypeScript, Node.js, Redis, Kafka, and PostgreSQL and run in AWS. It's not required that you know these, but we prefer that you are open to full-stack development.
