Second Spectrum is the world leader in building machines that understand sports. We leverage this machine understanding to provide a full suite of products and solutions for sports leagues, coaches, front offices, traditional and digital media, and content owners – constantly innovating to create new forms of information, interaction, immersion, and personalization. We are at the forefront of computer vision, machine learning, big data, augmented reality, and product design and our mission is to revolutionize the world of sports through intelligence. We are currently working with over two-thirds of NBA teams and provide analytic tools for coaches and players to help them improve their game. In addition, Second Spectrum helps broadcasters better display sport games and recently signed a 7-year deal with the NBA to be its official player tracking provider.
Second Spectrum is headquartered in Los Angeles with more than 100 full-time employees, and has R&D offices; in Shanghai, China, and in Morges, Switzerland. The R&D team in Switzerland is in charge of all aspects of the computer vision and deep learning technologies, and takes a central part in the 7-year NBA tracking deal.
As a general approach, we interview for aptitude over specific technologies or languages. However, you will be expected to speak to anything listed on your resume/CV.
