This is a unique opportunity to work within our C++ Engineering team, developing software solutions that are at the cutting edge of sports technology and officiating. You will be joining a team specialising in a variety of disciplines including computer vision, algorithm development, computer graphics and real-time video streaming. We work alongside an excellent product team, which allows us to focus our efforts on writing code and not spending lots of time on requirements gathering and testing.
In the SMART (Synchronised Multi-Angle Replay Technology) team we create and support a wide range of products. These are all built on a common platform for ingesting video and audio from broadcast cameras at a stadium, serving up that data across a network and then playing it back, often in a location far from where the sport is taking place.
The most well-known product that uses this system is VAR (Video Assistant Referee) in football. Our software has been successfully used across all of the top leagues to allow referees based in a single place to quickly analyse incidents from matches across a country.
We are also working on a product called Hawk-Eye Replay, which allows replay operators to view many cameras during a live sports broadcast, and then quickly get replay clips out to air. This is used across a variety of sports, most notably in the Emmy award winning coverage of the Masters golf tournament in 2019, where our software was used to power the back end of a website where users could view a video of every single shot hit during the tournament.
Other responsibilities include:
