We're growing quickly and are looking for a driven and experienced backend engineer. You will solve unique, complex technical problems. You will manage API integrations, build algorithms, and be responsible for building Wagr's early matching engine as we enable a marketplace. You'll work directly with the founding team to build a product that consumers love and rave about.
You care deeply about efficiency and optimization, and providing an unparalleled user experience. You know how to communicate technical concepts to non-technical teammates. You enjoy thinking about our product and how to make it better. You're a great listener, but are willing to speak up when you see something that needs to be fixed. You ask questions when something isn't clear, and you take ownership of your work.
Wagr is building a sports betting experience for all fans; one that is social, super intuitive, and always safe.
Sports have a superpower: they can eliminate the artificial divisions that permeate our society and help build tightly-knit communities around them. But these special qualities are notably absent from one of the biggest opportunities to emerge in recent history: the legalization of sports betting in the US.
Today, sports betting is still a complex, solitary, and often predatory experience. Products are only designed for gamblers, and brands only speak to men. We felt that sports betting was missing the mark on most fans (people like us!), so we started wagr to fix that.
We want to build communities, strengthen friendships, and give fans a reason to chuckle... even when their favorite team loses.
