About GRID

Currently, esports data is not widely accessible, very granular or available in real-time. GRID is solving these challenges by working closely together with tournament organizers and game publishers, transforming their raw bespoke data into a suite of game agnostic and easy-to-use APIs.


On top of this solid foundation, GRID (and partners) is building robust fan-facing applications, statistics and predictive models, worked on internally by respective specialized product teams. The general esports industry is growing every year and as we face an increased demand for our services, we are looking to expand our team with ambitious and bright minds that can help us solve the challenges that the industry faces.

For the modeling team we are looking to hire an experienced data engineer in order to ensure that the data quality which feeds our predictive services are of the highest quality.

What we offer

A unique and delightful way of working

  • Sustainably.
    We’re not a typical start up. We want our engineers to be rested and able to perform. Regular length days, less than 5 hours of scheduled meetings per week and Friday afternoons free to take on the projects you choose, is the norm.


  • Organized.
    We strive for considered decisions, creating software that lasts. We document them in decision records, which any engineer in any team can drive.


  • Agile & Inclusively.
    We’ve developed our own kanban-based way of working that is constantly being improved and adapted by the self organizing product-engineering teams. Opinions and ideas are valued from all.


  • Prioritizing quality.
    Achieved by ensuring detailed stories and epics, high test
    coverage, a thorough code-review process, consciously taking on technical debt and an open culture of sharing opinions.


  • Pragmatic.
    GRID thrives on being pragmatic, allowing us to make the best decisions, rather than keeping to rigid processes and procedures that don’t work well for us.

  • Impactful. With a robust CI/CD process, and a full suite of automated tests our engineers ship daily, allowing you to make impact on the product from day one with peace of mind.

  • Fostering growth. Empowering engineers who are determined to grow by providing a self-development budget and strong career advancement opportunities.
