About Us

Who We Are

It's incredibly simple. We love sports and we love technology. We spend every day pouring our heart and soul into crafting a software platform that, we believe, will profoundly enhance the world of youth and amateur sports.

“Companies always have visions and goals, but Sport Ngin really lives and breaths our values everyday.” Tim C., Sales

Core Values

We are guided by a collection of shared principles that shape all that we do:

1

Leave Everyone in Awe

Go above and beyond what is expected. Always over-deliver. Let your actions speak for themselves.

2

Boldly Embrace Change

Fortune favors the bold. Our world is changing at break-neck speed, and only those who have the guts to question the status quo will survive. Embrace this change and look for opportunities. Confidently continue to learn and innovate your craft. Don't be afraid to fail.

3

Be Honorable

Do the right thing. Conduct yourself with a sense of authentic integrity. Put yourself in the other guy's shoes. Leave your ego at the door. Strive for honesty, transparency, and accurate communication.

4

Work Hard, Play Hard

Approach work and play with passion. Work to cultivate and celebrate Sport Ngin culture. Have fun. Be socially, mentally and physically active. Persevere against odds to achieve personal and collective goals.

5

Cultivate Family

We are both a team and a family. Value strong relationships in all areas: with managers, clients, business partners, co-workers and personal family members. Be compassionate, friendly, and loyal. Stand up for each other. Humbly offer and accept support. Earn and value trust. Celebrate individual and collective accomplishments and successes.

6

Value Craftsmanship

Take great pride in the work you produce. Work efficiently, but don't cut corners. Strive to create things that are both visually beautiful and a joy to use. Practice "quality through creativity."

Our Culture

Sport Ngin is the melding of collective passions and talents. We are a team in every sense of the word. We believe in fostering an open, entrepreneurial culture that encourages each of us to use our skills and talents to enrich the experiences of our customers. We thrive in an open, relaxed, creative atmosphere. We celebrate every success, and are ecstatic about our company and the products and services that we offer. Great is in the details, and we sweat the details.
