Who we are

SportsIcon are bringing fans closer to their sporting heroes through NFTs.

We’ve just closed a pre-seed round with some all-star investors including Chad Hurley (Youtube), Nas (rapper turned investor), Roham Gharegozlou (Dapper Labs), Andrew Masanto (Hashgraph Hedera) and many more.

Through a combination of athlete curated digital art and bespoke content created exclusively with the athlete by the SportsIcon team, we enable fans to get closer than ever before to their sporting heroes.

A growing community, unlockable content and award-winning digital artists creating an incredibly high spec product.

The day-to-day

As this is a senior developer role, you will largely set your own priorities, goals and ways of working and figure things out on the fly. But some key elements will likely include the following.

Your domain will be growing to own our NodeJS API which connects to our core services to cadence smart contracts. As the months go by you will have the opportunity to expand your influence over the entire stack. Don’t worry if you don’t have experience with Flow and cadence we can support you to level up.

Month 1:

Spend high-quality time onboarding with the product and technical team. Get to grips with the NodeJS API and cadence codebases.

If you need to level up your smart contract work with the team, we will be on hand to help you out.

Start contributing to your first code, which will be a core part of our NFT issuance platform.

Month 2+

Work with designers and the product team regarding our future projects including an NFT marketplace. 

Build a relationship with the Dapper Labs team with regards to contract audits and more.

Our tech stack

  • PHP/Laravel
  • NodeJS
  • React
  • Cadence/Flow
  • AWS

We use ChipperCI for our CI/CD tooling and Laravel Vapor as our serverless deployment platform.

  • Energized by the challenge and opportunity of working with new languages and programming paradigms.
