Senior Product Designer

About us: why we're buzzing with energy ⚡

We're growing quickly and entering one of the most exciting phases of our company's journey. In 2021 we became the first social betting operator to receive a license in the US! In 2022, and beyond, we'll be focused on scaling quickly, developing and shipping exciting new product features, building an engaged community around our product, and expanding to more markets.

We're bursting at the seams with excitement and opportunity, and we have more ideas and initiatives than any small team could reasonably execute. We're biased, but if you seek outsized ownership over a new and disruptive mobile product, you'll be hard-pressed to find a more exciting opportunity.
