Building a team starts with valuing the team. We hire the best of the best to ensure you’re working with people you can constantly learn from. You’re trusted to get your work done your way while testing the limits of what’s possible and what’s next. We work hard to provide a culture where everyone feels supported, and our employees feel it—their votes helped us become one of Newsweek's Top 100 Global Most Loved Workplaces in 2023.

We also value sports. Not just because of the big wins and highlight-worthy plays, but because of the lasting impact sports can have: the lifelong lessons in teamwork and dedication; the influence of inspiring mentors; the priceless opportunities to play at the next level. Sports can change lives—that’s what we value.

Our team helps the world see sports differently through products that make it easier to capture video, analyze data, share highlights and do a lot more.

Your Role

We're on the lookout for a talented Product Designer to join our team and be dedicated to crafting cutting-edge tools for high school athletics. As the technology landscape in American high school sports evolves, Hudl is at the forefront, integrating video and data into practices and games.

In this role, you’ll:

  • Focus on the customer. You’ll shape, conduct and translate user research to help the team understand latent needs beyond the basics of what users say they want, digging deeper into the “why” behind user feedback. You’ll create actionable insights that will help drive physical and digital product experience strategy and design.
  • Be a visual and verbal storyteller. You’ll craft and communicate compelling concepts that are forward-facing, differentiated, and relevant to customer and business needs.
  • Add clarity to ambiguous problem spaces. You’ll tease out the important characteristics of users, their environments, and the market’s expectations to support prioritized and intuitive experiences.
  • Collaborate. By forming close partnerships with multi-disciplinary counterparts in Engineering, Product, Design, Scrum and Quality, you’ll help define requirements and deliver clear and focused digital user experiences.
  • Design process, quality and delivery. You’ll advocate for tactility, accessibility, customer needs and design excellence, all as you shepherd your project to release. After delivering on-time solutions, you’ll measure and own the results of how well those solutions address design and product needs.

For this role, we're currently considering candidates who live within a commuting distance of our offices in Lincoln or Omaha, Nebraska. But with our flexible work policy, there aren't any current requirements for the number of days you come to the office.


  • Strong communicator. You thrive in a collaborative environment that fosters open and honest communication. You have excellent presentation skills and can confidently sell ideas based on solid rationale and objectives from cross-functional teams. You’re comfortable being respectfully blunt when giving and receiving feedback.
  • Iterative prototyping skills. You’re proficient at using low and high fidelity prototyping tools and wireframing techniques based on the needs of the project.
  • A problem-solver. You have the ability to think critically and holistically about user interactions, and can address complex design challenges to provide innovative solutions that factor in technical, business and design constraints.
  • Organizational skills. You can assess the appropriate level of design and research necessary to achieve your goals, with a plan to reach final deliverables.
  • Technical proficiency. You’ve used modern component-based design software (e.g., Figma and Adobe Creative suite) and tools like Miro to workshop concepts and drive alignment with remote stakeholders.
  • A robust portfolio. You’re able to showcase a variety of projects that demonstrate your expertise in UX design, including examples of user flows, wireframes, prototypes and final design solutions.


  • Research and insights experience. You’ve planned and conducted qualitative and quantitative user research, and know how to translate insights into actionable product and design outcomes. You’re adept at using various research methodologies to optimize the end user experience.
  • A sports enthusiast. You understand the unique challenges and opportunities within the sports technology industry.
  • Growth mindset. You’re committed to staying up-to-date with industry trends, emerging technologies and design best practices, and have a strong desire to continuously learn and evolve.

Our Role

  • Champion work-life harmony. We’ll give you the flexibility you need in your work life (e.g., flexible vacation time, company-wide holidays and timeout (meeting-free) days, remote work options and more) so you can enjoy your personal life too.
  • Guarantee autonomy. We have an open, honest culture and we trust our people from day one. Your team will support you, but you’ll own your work and have the agency to try new ideas.
  • Encourage career growth. We’re lifelong learners who encourage professional development. We’ll give you tons of resources and opportunities to keep growing.
  • Provide an environment to help you succeed. We've invested in our offices, designing incredible spaces with our employees in mind. But whether you’re at the office or working remotely, we’ll provide you the tech stack and hardware to do your best work.
  • Support your mental and physical health. We care about our employees’ wellbeing. Our Employee Assistance Program, employee resource groups and fitness partner Peerfit have you covered.
  • Cover your medical insurance. We have multiple plans to pick from to ensure you’ll have the coverage you (and your dependents) want, including vision, dental, fertility healthcare and family forming benefits.
  • Contribute to your 401(K). Yep, that’s free money. We’ll match up to 4% of your own contribution.

Inclusion at Hudl

Hudl is an equal opportunity employer. Through our actions, behaviors and attitude, we’ll create an environment where everyone, no matter their differences, feels like they belong.

We offer resources to ensure our employees feel safe bringing their authentic selves to work, including employee resource groups and communities. But we recognize there’s ongoing work to be done, which is why we track our efforts and commitments in annual inclusion reports.

We also know imposter syndrome is real and the confidence gap can get in the way of meeting spectacular candidates. Please don’t hesitate to apply—we’d love to hear from you.
