Reports to: CTO

Company: Thuzio’s platform connects regular people with sports legends (other celebrities coming soon) for unforgettable experiences. Founded by Mark Gerson (of Gerson Lehrman fame), Tiki Barber (of New York Giants’ fame), and a team of startup all-stars, Thuzio makes booking once in a lifetime VIP experiences easy and accessible for businesses and enthusiasts alike.

Thuzians are young, smart, and energetic bunch and we enjoy building product that make people smile. And we just secured a new round of funding: http://www.bloomberg.com/video/tiki-barber-s-thuzio-raises-6-million-h0yhw6p3S4SxdrCqDQmY1w.html

Position Mission: Imagine having a big client whom you really want to close. Traditionally, you might think to bring them to a ball game if your company has season tickets. You’d get them some beers and some food, tell him what you're all about. They might even listen to you. But what if instead of watching players on the field from a few hundred feet away, your client could meet them face to face?

Enter Thuzio. We’re building the world's largest online marketplace for Sports talent, giving businesses and brands everything they need to find and book the right Sports legend to help accomplish their goals. We’re building and launching Thuzio 2.0 from the ground up with a focus on providing as much relevant data as insights on sports talent as possible.

  • Work closely with the CTO to make decisions on tech stack, libraries and tools
