DraftKings
125 Summer St., Floor 5

Were reimagining sports and technology.
DraftKings is bringing sports fans closer to the games they love and becoming an essential part of their experience in the process. An industry pioneer since our founding in 2012, we believe we can continue to define what it means to be a technology company in sports entertainment. We love what we do and we think you will too.

Love data? We do too.
DraftKings is growing quickly and were looking for a Tech Lead to direct our data science teams and influence our business roadmap. This is more than a technical position, though. Youll be collaborating across teams, informing our decisions, and creatively finding solutions to all of our data challenges. Sound good to you? Join us.

What youll do as a Data Science Tech Lead:

  • Take ownership of design, development, deployment, and operations of data science infrastructure.
  • You will research and develop advanced models that uncover insights from raw data and integrate those algorithms into our platform.
  • Collaborate with business leads across the company to plan and execute valuable data science projects.
  • Lead your team in design sessions and ensure your team delivers high quality work that aligns with DraftKings engineering strategy.

What skills you will use:

  • Ideally, you have experience as the expert on a development team where you were responsible for everything from planning to delivering key features and management of those features.
  • Expertise in a programming language like Python, Java, C#, or C++.
  • Deep understanding of quantitative methods, notably writing code to navigate machine learning and data analysis.
  • Ability to effectively communicate technical concepts to non-experts.
  • You will also need an intuitive sense of how quantitative work aligns with business priorities.

Who are we a good fit for?
We love working with talented people but more than that, we seek out compassionate co-workers with a collaborative spirit. Our work moves quickly and were great at coming together to find creative solutions to some of techs most interesting problems. If that sounds good to you, join us.
