BallerTV is a venture-backed startup that is building the world's largest sports network from the ground up. Our mission is to connect families and communities everywhere through the unifying power of live sports. We are in a unique position with our live streaming tech, network of videographers and logistics foundation to deliver on this mission and own this lucrative youth sports media market. Similar to the early days of ESPN, we are building a generational business that will forever change the landscape of sports broadcasting. We have a clear path to scale, and our VP of Operations will play a critical role in building this into a really special business.
Our ideal candidate will have hands-on experience quickly scaling a complex, boots on the ground, logistics operation. You'll have strong leadership skills, and a passion for tackling difficult unsolved problems. You'll be a member of BallerTV's Executive Team, and report directly to the company's founders.
Responsibilities and DutiesThis role will be responsible for owning and strengthening what we call our "four pillars". Our four pillars are the foundation of what is required to provide live and on-demand video coverage for sports. Although these four pillars may seem simple in a vacuum, the challenge of this role is to find a way to deliver coverage through these pillars at a massive scale.
+ People: We are a boots on the ground organization, and have tens-of-thousands of videographers in our network spread across the country. You'll be responsible for ensuring individuals to show up on time and provide quality game coverage for our audience.
+ Equipment: We have three warehouse locations (CA, IN, MA), and 10,000+ assets we ship and track. You'll be responsible for making sure the right equipment shows up at the right place at the right time.
+ Internet: We cover events in over 1,000 different venues across the country, many of which are in remote locations or "metal boxes" with limited access to internet. You'll be responsible for finding the best and most efficient way to access internet for our live feeds.
+ Technology: We built a platform that makes it easy someone with no experience to create a quality live sports broadcast, along with an extensive library of logistics and event management tools. You'll be responsible for setting the roadmap to continue to leverage technology as much as possible to reduce our friction to scale.
Qualifications and Skills
+ Relevant Experience: 10+ years of overall operations experience, ideally including experience at a high-growth logistics focused venture backed company.
