About the Team
Fanatics Collectibles is a new company working at the intersection of collectibles & technology. Backed by some of the best investors, sports properties & operators in the world, we are integrating with Fanatics' global digital sports platform - which includes 900 sports relationships & more than 81 million reachable fans - to reimagine the collectibles business for the 21st century.

We are a startup building products to transform the trading card industry. We aren't a startup in the traditional sense, though. While we are a small team building new products from the ground up, we also have the backing of Fanatics - the world's largest sports merchandiser with over 900 sports relationships & more than 81 million reachable fans. We have exclusive licensing deals with the MLB, NFL & NBA & the products we build will be used by millions of trading cards fans from day 1. We are out to reinvent the trading card industry, which is a bold & ambitious mission.

What does this mean as a member of the engineering team?

We move fast. We have a lot to do & are looking for folks who will drive projects to completion with a sense of urgency, but not at the expense of quality, scalability & performance. We think about scale. The trading card market is large & we will be the de facto entry point into the hobby. We're pragmatic. We embrace new technologies, but not just for the sake of it. We like server-rendered HTML, using a PaaS for deployments, & writing enough tests to give us confidence but not striving for code coverage numbers just for the sake of it. We are product-focused. We're building products that will reach millions & always tie our work back to how it will add value for our users.

The Role

We are building a multi-product ecosystem - live auctions, real time buying, streaming & more - & are looking for Fullstack Software Engineers to build our first products. Fullstack engineers feel comfortable working across the entire stack to implement features for our ever-growing product suite. Maybe you don't like being boxed into a specific specialty or maybe you love the entire software design process from delightful UI interactions to data modeling. Either way, we work in collaborative, cross functional teams & are looking for engineers who can fill the gap” - taking ownership of features & products that may oscillate between front & backend intensive work.
Today, our stack is Elixir / Phoenix, Live view (server rendered HTML over websockets) & Postgres. Needless to say, we're big fans of Elixir, but as the company grows & we take on new challenges we won't shy away from using the right tool for the job.
