Software Engineer - Backend

About Our Company:

Daddy Sports is committed to making sports simulation widely accessible. The future of sport is practiced and played at-home or in specialized training facilities. We’re making simulators affordable and accessible starting with Golf. We built a $99 golf simulator that is disrupting an industry where the average cost of a simulator is $5000. On all fronts we’ve received tons of recognition, but we’re most proud of our community of over 200,000 supporters on TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube. We started 2 years ago and we’re very early on in our journey, join us today as we blast through an otherwise slow industry and be part of this sports revolution where we turn every sport into an every day option.
