An Insider's view of DraftKings

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

A couple of weeks into my first month I had some family matters that I needed to help with -- my team didn’t even blink an eye and supported me throughout the entire time. DraftKings truly does care about its employees and it’s evident by the work environment & community it has built.

Hoa

Product Owner

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

I've been working closely with my teams to explore opportunities to align several methods we use to give back to our users - from promotional offers to missions - and discover opportunities for optimization in that space. While I don't have a technical background, my teams have involved me in technical discussions since my first day at DraftKings.

Kate

Senior Product Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

The collaborative culture. I have heard how competitive it gets in companies that are in a hypergrowth phase, but I was pleasantly surprised at how helpful everyone was when I started working here.

Parth

Product Experience Associate

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

First, it’s critical to get to know employees personally to build a relationship. Then I like to roll up my sleeves and partner with teammates to accomplish initiatives. I like to encourage discussion, debate, transparency, and communication.

Graham

Chief People Officer

What projects are you most excited about?

I got to work on the first online sportsbook in New Jersey and the teams here being able to architecture elegant systems and pull that feat successfully is a testament to the fact that you are surrounding yourself with really smart people. This often rubs off on you and makes you motivated.
