Design Traffic/Project Manager
Location: Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia
Requisition Number: 114
Design Traffic Manager
Genius Sports is looking for a highly skilled Design Traffic Manager to join our UX Prototyping team in Medellin, Colombia.
London-based and founded in 2000, Genius Sports is a global leader in the collection, operationalization, and distribution of sports data to the media, betting, and sports management verticals. Our solutions cover a wide range of uses; from a reporter in Colombia live-updating the action of a football game, to a trader in Estonia setting the odds on a volleyball match, to a gambler at a pub in London betting on their favorite team, to a child in China learning about the top eSports players’ latest stats.
The Genius Sports UX team supports global design production out of our Medellin office. We aim to service our global organization with design and creative services that align with our brand and values.
Our team beliefs
We believe story is the most important communication tool we have. Through story we will learn from the past, envision the future, and bring everyone along for the ride. Story is the vehicle for strategy.
We believe truth is the north star – both destination and guide. Real data collected through intelligent means provide us answers (and new questions). Opinions, while interesting, lack the same value. Truth is the objective of research.
We believe craft differentiates ideation and execution. We celebrate the acts of creation and refinement as deliberate and definite skills that take discipline to learn and lifetimes to master. Craft is the mechanism for design.
Our team values
We are passionate; story, truth, and craft aren’t our day jobs – they’re our reasons for being.
We are curious; we pull loose threads, turn over stones, and wake sleeping dogs.
We are brilliant; our knowledge, our wisdom, our talent… they shine a light.
We are empathetic; we see each other for the beautiful, complex humans we all are.
We are playful; it’s only work if you’re not laughing.
We are generous; we fully offer our authentic selves to one another.
