In every single F1 race Sportradar systems track 360,000 car positions. That's 8,280,000 car positions in every season. And that's just Formula 1. Our engineers are there for every kick, pass, shot, mouse click and change in the odds. That's 300 million odds changes every month. A data set that's growing by 30TB every month. A team committing at a rate that triggers 30,000 CI pipeline executions a month, to codebases more than 30,000,000 lines long…
Ensuring that all that data is reliable and accurate is no mean feat. We value local decision-making and empower our engineers to shape their roles. With 'make it better time', you get to propose and show us where we should change/innovate. Using the Spotify model ensures we can make decisions quickly with increased emphasis on autonomy, the organization becomes more flexible, adaptable, and productive. We are actively adopting test-driven development as it matches our engineering principle 'if it's not tested, it is broken'. We follow a cloud-native strategy; managed services enable us to focus on the problems that interest us most - and we invest in our people with AWS training as we recognize the skills modern developers need to succeed. We have a preference for modern lightweight microservices; we leverage the right tools for the job - our most widespread languages are Java & TypeScript. If this sounds interesting, we should talk.
