    Position: Applied Sports Scientist (USA)

    Reports to: CSO Guided Knowledge

    Guided Knowledge is a U.K.-based company and a pioneer in developing digital coaching technology. Our first product to market is Dragonfly Golf, the next generation of high-performance sports technology making 3D motion capture mobile, accessible, and more affordable.

    The Dragonfly Golf system is a first-of-its-kind 18-sensor smart suit and digital coaching app that offers golf professionals the benefits of 3D technology to improve their game. It translates a host of previously invisible data into practical yet powerful insights via hundreds of performance metrics, 360-degree visibility and instant feedback via your smartphone. No longer trapped in a motion capture studio or tethered by wires like other products, the Dragonfly Golf system allows you to capture, measure and monitor swing performance with unparalleled accuracy and reliability anytime, anywhere to unlock a competitive advantage.

    Today we are focused on golf, with baseball to be released later in 2020. And we are already thinking beyond sport to the future. Whether learning a new skill or mastering an art, we offer people an objective way to measure performance and progress so it’s easier to improve.

    While the company is currently UK based, growth in the USA is a strategic priority given the market opportunities.

    We are seeking bold, smart and attentive individuals who are excited about the prospect of revolutionizing not only golf but the sports industry at-large.
