Genius Sports calls for Vilnius recruitment drive to support its global duties

Genius Sports is recruiting for ‘multiple roles’ within its ‘Vilnius Lithuania development hub’ to support the sports tech firm’s global operations and future growth projects.   

Updating the media, Genius confirmed that it has launched a new hiring programme to bolster the capacity, talent and resources of its Vilnius tech support and development units.   

Genius has operated its Vilnius tech hub since 2015, with its Lithuanian office playing a central role in maintaining the firm’s core business services in relation to sports data, technology and live streaming provisions.

The sports tech firm has expanded its Vilnius presence following a series of contract wins and client renewals, with Genius maintaining its profile as data rights collector and distributor for FIBA basketball, US college NCAA leagues and over 500 other sports organisations globally.

Marked as new projects and future objectives, Genius’ Vilnius hub will work on the development of a ‘new digital competition management system for world football’, in addition to the firm’s next enhancements of its basketball data solutions and further innovations for engaging sports fans around the world.

Matthew Cowling, Head of Product Innovation at Genius Sports, said: “The products that our team here in Vilnius develop and implement every day are relied upon by sports in over 150 countries worldwide. 

“Amidst the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, we’re excited that Genius Sports’ operations in Vilnius are continuing to expand and look forward to welcoming several more outstanding people to our team.”
