Spotlight: DraftKings

Founded in 2012, DraftKings has quickly risen to the top of daily fantasy sports, a market which allows users to take part in day-of and day-long competitions, rather than be forced to commit to an entire season.

The company, based in Boston, boasts over 2 billion dollars in prize payouts. In addition to being the “Official Daily Fantasy Game” for Major League Baseball, DraftKings has partnered with the NFL, as well as the NHL. It is considered to be the foremost company in the daily fantasy sports industry.

DraftKings is hiring full-time employees for the winter of 2017. It is looking for passionate, focused individuals who have experience in business data analysis, or product operations analysis, or video editing. Analysts need to be comfortable with and well-versed at interpreting data, a skill essential to growing the company. Video editors are expected to produce content for hundreds of thousands of DraftKings users

Regardless of position, employees should be self-motivated, as DraftKings, which originally operated out of co-founder Paul Liberman’s garage, boasts a strong startup culture and requires employees to take the initiative in order to get the job done. In addition to a strong work ethic, employees should expect to foster a passion for sports. It isn’t difficult to imagine why sports would hold a special status at DraftKings.
