What we’re building, and how you can help

At Silbo, we’re building a digital marketplace that lets officials earn more by managing their own schedules while also enabling leagues and tournaments to set specific criteria for the officials they need — eliminating hours of headaches and endless phone calls. Silbo takes care of all the paperwork and helps officials build their resumes, which helps them get more games.

We've created a mobile and web app for sports officials and leagues - imagine Uber for Sports Officiating - to cut out pesky middlemen and streamline the referee-to-game transaction.

We're looking for a Finance & Operations Director to grow our business from 4 to 10 US states in the next 12 months.

You'll be in on the ground floor of an early-stage startup. You can influence product direction and build a name for yourself. This job requires deep commitment, but every day you’ll see the direct impact you've had on sports officials, leagues, and the company itself.

Wage and Benefits

The intended salary is $80,000 and we can negotiate stock options as well. We offer healthcare and other benefits, too.
