Come and work with us!

A great career opportunity for you in 2018 - the Results Base team are expanding and we are looking to add staff in key areas: Technology and Timing

The Technology role is to help develop, manage and maintain our timing, networking and infrastructure both at our Milton Keynes offices and out in the field at events. You'll need at least a good understanding of wired and wireless networks, SQL databases and general office applications like Office365 and Sage. We also expect you to have an inquisitive nature as part of your role will be looking into new technologies and their potential for our business.

The Timing role will involve being part of our growing team of event timers and you will need a clean UK driving license and an aptitude for working with both technology and people in sometimes stressful situations. Full training on the timing systems will be given but you will need to be familiar with PCs and Windows.

If you are interested in one of these exciting and cool positions please email us at info@resultsbase.net

New Android App

With the whole world running their lives on mobile devices these days we thought it was about time we updated the way that our online entry and results could be accessed - hence our new mobile app. No longer will you have to scroll around the screen trying to fill in an online entry form or search for a result, it's all been mobile optimised and will scale from phone to tablet.

The app is available for download for Android devices from the Google Play store (HERE) and is available for the Apple family of 'iDevices' as well (HERE).

The eagle-eyed will also notice that there's a GPS option in the menu and this is being rolled out for 2017 and will allow live tracking of a competitor within an event as long as they are carrying their mobile device with them - ideal for sportives and long runs. More details on this feature shortly!

Results Base - event timing without compromise

ResultsBase was officially launched in April 2014 with a central base in Milton Keynes and an additional Southern and two Northern offices. However, we are by no means a new starter in the timing industry! Every member of the 12-strong founding team has many years of experience working first-hand in the events industry. This outstanding combined experience across all areas of event management, and, of course, event timing, means we are in an un-challenged position to support every aspect of your event.

We provide timing services to over 300 events per year with our core business areas being running, cycling, multisport and obstacle races. Using our in-house designed Black Box timing systems we can tackle anything from a simple charity run to a multi-day, multi-stage cycle event and anything inbetween. And our timing options go way beyond the simple 'mat on the ground' with a phenomenaly reliable 'chip-on-bib' system which delivers mass participation timing for events like the London Winter Run or our LiveTiming app which puts accurate live-to-web low cost timing in the hands of small event organisers for whom a full-blown chip timing option is not an affordable option.

Beyond timing and results we have plenty to offer event organisers with race bib production including full personalisation options, event pack production and delivery, a fully integrated online entry service that seamlessly links with all our timing and results options and more besides. If you want to upgrade your event with instant results at the finish line, race clocks, a commentator display, customised message and information displays on large screens, PA systems and rigid or inflatable arches with custom branding then all of this and more is possible and part of our regular service.

If you are interested in seeing what really can be delivered by a timing company committed to supporting your event then get in touch: info@resultsbase.net will put you through to our main Milton Keynes office and the start of what could be a very worthwhile discussion.

Two massive events, one monster day!
