Effortless soccer game filming and video clip editing for every player.

Job Description


Trace is a ground-breaking technology that automatically films and edits video into highlights for every player on the field.  With Trace, players, parents, and coaches are delivered the edited moments that matter to them instead of the whole game. Just the video you want, without the video you don’t. Our experience is tailored to each athlete. Hundreds of thousands of athletes use Trace monthly, from National teams to kids just starting out their athletic journey. 


At Trace we look for individuals who are passionate about sports, have played sports and understand how to work hard to achieve goals. We’re a collaborative team of top performers that thrive on healthy competition, we push each other individually so we can succeed collectively. We will challenge you to develop personally and professionally if you’re willing to learn, commit to our mission and be coachable. All of this while focusing on the sports market!


As a Market Research Intern, you will support our Sales team by performing in-depth research on the youth soccer market in order for us to make educated, strategic decisions. You will research trends in the club soccer world including the number of registered youth players broken down by state, county, city, etc. Your findings will provide valuable insight for the Sales team to continue to grow across clubs and teams in the U.S.  This is a great opportunity for someone who understands the value of market data analysis and wants to spend their summer working at a high-growth, fast-paced startup passionate about all things sports!


How you will contribute:

  • Provide research support and assistance to the Sales team
  • Perform in-depth research and collect valuable data regarding the youth soccer market
  • Responsible for reading industry research reports and summarizing key points to develop a strong view of the soccer market
  • Accurately articulate and summarize your data findings to assist Trace in making strategic, informed sales decisions

Skills that will help you be successful in this role:

  • Currently enrolled in an undergraduate/graduate program, earning a degree in economics, math/statistics, market research, business administration, sports management or related degree
  • You should be very comfortable working with data – including analyzing data, summarizing data, and articulating it in layman’s terms.
  • Expert communication skills, both written and verbal
  • Proven self-starter who holds a high degree of ownership and accountability. We don’t do any babysitting at Trace, so if you desire autonomy Trace is for you. If you need a lot of structure and structured training, Trace is not for you.
  • Ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment with an exceptional attention to detail.
  • A good sense of humor
  • Knowledge of the club soccer world is a plus!

About you:

  • You are an analytical problem solver and an out-of-the-box creative thinker.
  • You are passionate, self motivated and have the demonstrated ability to take an idea to fruition without much direction.
  • Excellent verbal & written communicator
  • You’re hungry to learn, crave opportunity and ownership

Trace is an equal opportunity employer. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, national origin, marital status, citizenship, disability, or veteran status.
