Job: UI Engineer: Frontend

YourSports was built to connect information across history and geography, using interest networks and sports. We believe that underneath the massive amounts of relationship data in sports lays the next great technology company in the consumer and API spaces.

Sports teams and the many nodes connected around them socially thread cities together around the world. On top of those connections, the organization, distribution, creation, and monetization of information can be re-imagined.

Social discovery across historical, geographic, and tribal networks can finally exist.
