Hudl Company Overview

Hudl is a sports + technology company and we are changing the sports industry.

We create software that helps coaches win, athletes look like pros, and recruiters find more talent.

We’re drafting the best talent across the U.S. to help.

We help teams win with video.

  • Teams upload their game film to our site, study it, and "break it down" by adding text notes, ink telestrations, and tagged metadata.
  • Coaches then share the edited segments of video with groups of players on their team.
  • Athletes can study the video on their mobile devices throughout the week to prepare for their next game. If an athlete notices a great play, he or she can highlight it to appear on a public profile for fans, parents, and recruiters to see.
  • Recruiters have access to thousands of games, highlights, player profiles, and academic information.

We are growing

There is no shortage of awesome stuff to work on here. We need your help to create tailored products for each of these sports:  football, volleyball, basketball, soccer, track & field, & lacrosse.

Interested in working at Hudl? Awesome. Here’s what you need to know.

Our goal is to change the way coaches, athletes and analysts prepare for and stay ahead of the competition. Whether it’s with video, stats or a combination of the two, we want our tools to help every step of the way. That’s why we’re always hiring, and we need the best because a product is only as good as the people behind it.

Hudl needs a strategic thinker to evolve the language, models and systems it uses at all levels of the organization. We believe information architecture (IA) should be influenced by every department in service of our customers. We believe managing and overseeing this process requires a dedicated and experienced caretaker.

You’d be responsible for developing language, models and systems that align with the company’s 3-5 year strategic objectives. You’d also advocate for and train IA competency with key leaders and stakeholders on product, design, finance and marketing.

Yes—we are really hiring a true Information Architect, not a UX designer. We have a team of 25 product and UI designers in place. We need a really damn good specialist with all the stuff above and below.

This position will be located in our brand new Lincoln, NE headquarters or Boston, MA. If Boston, regular travel to Lincoln HQ will be necessary.

You will:

  • Model, diagram and define. Guide the core concepts within Hudl’s business and products (e.g. Video vs. Clip vs. Playlist).
  • Create guidelines and principles. Your frameworks will strengthen the systems team’s effort to assist teams at Hudl with repeatable, reusable patterns.
  • Influence. Development of new content taxonomies and data structures will go through you.  How should we catalog every stat from every high school football game in the USA? How might we organize a hierarchy of team sports globally?
  • Advise. Department heads will look to you for help when they deploy our IA within their domains and tools.
  • Work cross-functionally. You’ll build relationships with other systems teams like data analytics, user research, and data engineering.
  • Organize and maintain a controlled vocabulary. Hudlies and customers will be be able to communicate consistently across channels and contexts. What synonyms should we allow? Where? Why?
  • Facilitate collaborative workshops. You’ll lead the conversations about IA that will improve  Hudl’s KPIs. You’ll train and educate Hudlies about IA tools, processes and concepts.
  • Report to the VP of Design. You’ll also work closely with the VP of Marketing and Chief Product Officer. They’ll depend on your critiques and high-level presentations about the tradeoffs of strategic IA decisions.

You are:

  • Experienced. 5+ years practicing high-level, strategic information architecture (sometimes called “Big IA”).
  • Passionate. Your enthusiasm for IA excites others about IA.
  • Organized. You can present a portfolio of controlled vocabularies, clarity-inspiring diagrams, governance activities, and taxonomy designs.
  • Energized by complexity and ambiguity. You can tease out the nuance between a dozen different words for “video” (and strive to simplify).
  • A teacher. You can share specific stories of guiding employees less familiar with foundational IA concepts.
  • Dedicated. Have you heard the phrase, “strong opinions, loosely held”? Ultimately, you keep an open mind about what’s best for the product, your peers and most importantly, customers.
  • Comfortable asking tough questions, regardless of who’s in the room including senior executives, directors, and founders.
  • Happy with change. You are comfortable working in a fast moving environment of constant iterative deployment.

We will:

  • Treat you like an adult. It’s all about a healthy work-life balance. We’ll trust you to get work done and take a break when you need it. (Hello, unlimited vacation policy!)
  • Give you what you need. We’ll supply the environment and tools for success, allowing you to focus on professional growth and career development.  
  • Challenge you. You'll be surrounded by people equally committed to the company's success, allowing for constant collaboration.
