What do you look for in engineering candidates?
Most importantly, we look for people who are curious. We’re not looking for code monkeys, we’re looking for people who can solve problems.
The government doesn’t stop, so regulations are constantly changing. That means that a great feature we implement today may need to change to fit new requirements tomorrow. You have to be adaptable to those sorts of changes.
It’s important to know, we’re not looking for perfection. We’re looking for people who are willing to acknowledge they don’t know something, are ready to be challenged and to learn.

As a company that has grown so big, so fast, talk to us about how the internal work culture has shifted.
The engineering team used to feel like a startup, but today it feels more like a real company, not because we have a big corporate feel, but we’ve implemented more official processes.
With 50-60 employees, the engineering team is still small enough to get to know most people and work collaboratively. We also work with other teams, but our processes allow each team to have autonomy over their part of the product so that they can put their own touch on things.
Part of our culture is that we’re open to the fact that new ideas come from anywhere. Any employee can draw up a proof of concept and build a demo. If we see value in it, we can implement it the very next day. With our pace of change, you’re able to improve the process and the end product very quickly. It’s exciting. We love to learn about new technology and frameworks.
What does the future of interactive betting look like?
There’s so much more to betting than just sports. There are all sorts of things you can wager on, and markets are becoming more and more open to other categories. So stay tuned, there’s lots to come.
