The Problem


Digital sports betting in the US is still in the Stone Age. Todays products still use the same antiquated table format that dates all the way back to the early 1800s, when they were writing odds on giant chalkboards. Because incumbents havent adapted to a mobile-first society, the current customer experience is painful, especially for a newer audience.


Backed by top-tier venture capital firms we are led by a team of successful entrepreneurs and tech veterans with experience and leadership roles at some of world's most accomplished companies (Google, Zynga, Groupon, CBS and more). With this team and you we will be revolutionizing the sports betting world.


As our first iOS Engineer, you will be responsible for building our iOS app from the ground up. You will report directly to the CTO and work closely with the design and backend engineering team.
