Forza FC is a team of 20 people from different countries, passionately crafting solutions using modern technologies to reinvent football club membership by enhancing the value for the club and the fans. We're based in the heart of Kyiv, Ukraine. 

We are working with leading clubs and organizations in the football industry to develop a digital membership platform that delivers next level experience to fans whilst enabling clubs to establish new and increase existing revenue streams, and to increase the quality of customer synergy. We have already launched with Arsenal, Brøndby IF, Olympique Lyonnais, Tigres UANL, Kerala Blasters FC, Galatasaray, and Club Atlético River Plate with over half a million active users.

At Forza FC we keep things simple, and avoid lengthy company policies and bureaucracy.

We do not hire solely based on experience or university degrees. Rather, we want to hire people who are smart, passionate and self-driven and can learn and adapt quickly to change. We are an equal opportunity employer and are excited to expand our team with diverse talents from different backgrounds and cultures.

Our motto is that if the team is feeling well, the company is feeling well. That's why we created what we believe is one of the best ways of working where every employee has the autonomy to create a good balance between work and free time. As with everything, we strive to make the work environment and our products even better.

We value self-reliance, and believe the success of the company relies on the actions of each individual.

Additionally, you have an opportunity to benefit from:

  • Relocation support (if necessary)
  • Technical setup according to your request
  • Unlimited paid vacation
  • Flexible work hours 


We are aiming to reduce bias in the very first stages of the recruiting process. That is why, when firstly submitting your candidacy, we offer not to provide us with your name, gender, origin details, so your identity is protected. In case you submit your CV that includes the hints to the subjects mentioned above, before sending it for a team review, we'll process it, so the data is preserved.

Workplace & Culture

We’re connected by our passions, regardless if they are about changing the world of football, technology or the game itself.

Our company is different than others, which is why we're experimenting with how a company usually works. We see the individuals instead of the whole, that's why we continuously question the company norms.  We do believe it's important that each person finds their best way of working in order to get a long term life balance, and the flexibility in our company is a proof of that.

We work in teams, members and what not (let’s not get into details yet). Our company structure is constantly developing, changing and improving, because we are not perfect and will probably never be, and that's the beauty of it. 

At Forza FC you are welcome to come as you are - no matter your gender, personality type, sexuality, religion, background, ethnicity or disabilites. A diverse team is the most innovative, creative and clever one, and it is through those dissimilarities we will be able to reach every football fan and club in the world.
