Senior Frontend Engineer at Sorare
New York City, NY, US

Sorare is at the intersection of sports, gaming and NFTs. Through tradable digital cards, Sorare is designing a collective fantasy football experience where you can manage your favorite players, hone your passion to earn prizes and be part of a community. Anyone, anywhere, can connect with the game on Sorare. The company’s mission is to build “the game within the game” and to give fans, players and clubs the platform to celebrate, share and own the game.

Founded in 2018, Sorare has seen tremendous growth. The platform had a card sales volume of over $130M (€110M) since January 2021 across 160 countries. Sorare is backed by a world-class team of investors including Softbank, Benchmark, Accel Partners, and footballers Gerard Piqué, Antoine Griezmann and Rio Ferdinand.

We are looking for a Senior Frontend Engineer to join our growing Engineering team.
