VP, Engineering


We believe each moment in sports can change the plan, change the game and change lives. That’s why our mission is to build the world’s most powerful network of sports video and data to empower teams to make every moment count.

How? By hiring people around the world who want to help us support coaches, players, analysts, recruiters, teams, clubs and fans. Hudl customers use our products to capture video, analyze data, share highlights and a lot more. They stay ahead of the game with the latest technology and we help them achieve their goals.

Want to join us?

We’re looking for someone to be our Vice President of Engineering to guide, grow and nurture a diverse, global team of 150+ engineers. Our plan is to double in size over the next five years and the VP of Engineering is a part of the team responsible for getting us there. Our team spans the U.S. and Europe and includes software engineers, hardware engineers, data scientists and data engineers. It’s a group of servant leaders—they’re responsible for creating solutions that solve some of the toughest problems in performance analysis, recruiting and fan engagement. These solutions weave together:

  • Hardware (like our smart camera Hudl Focus)
  • The cloud (the heart of Hudl’s product)
  • Mobile and Mac apps that are mission critical for more than 200,000 teams
  • A video breakdown service that tags over a million games each year with in-depth stats

Hudl has a flexible location policy. Once we can safely return to our offices, we'll leave it up to you to choose where you want to work: one of our offices in Lincoln, Omaha, Boston, or London, or remotely within the U.K or U.S.
