Under the dedicated leadership of DraftKings co-founder and CEO Jason Robins, the once start-up has become one of the greatest disruptors in the sports gaming and entertainment space since its initial launch in 2012. Since then, Robins has come to lead a company of over 2,300 employees across ten offices around the globe as the ultimate destination for a unique and dynamic daily fantasy sports and sports betting experience.
Job growth has also spiked internally at DraftKings due to the arrival of DraftKings Sportsbook, including a steady percent increase YOY in new hires at DraftKings. Over the past year, DraftKings has opened US offices in New Jersey, Las Vegas, San Francisco and new headquarters in Boston, as well as international offices in Dublin, Kyiv, Plovdiv, Sofia, and Tel Aviv, to complement current teams to serve customers 24-7 regardless of geographic location or time zone. There has been an average growth of ~50 percent for both headcount and square footage per year since 2014.
It’s simple, at DraftKings, we believe life’s more fun with skin in the game.
