Founding Engineer

Gambling/Betting StartUp - Hybrid NY

One of the clients we’re recruiting for have raised $6m and are looking to build a team out in NY. Here are some more details:


Our client is the first high-frequency, commission-free sports trading platform in the US— essentially the NASDAQ of betting. This platform guarantees bettors the best odds and eliminates the need for traditional sportsbooks. It does this by enabling users to bet directly against friends or the market, rather than against the house, making the betting experience more efficient, fair, and, most importantly, profitable. $300B annually bet on sports in the US and the size of the market is rapidly growing given the number of states legalizing sports betting

Founders are recent Harvard grads who started the company with the believe that a commission-free P2P exchange model will replace the exploitative and unprofitable betting model of traditional sportsbooks. They are seeking a Founding Engineer to join their growing team.
