Employee Testimonials

Manasa Konidena
Software Engineer

"The inclusive spirit is a huge motivating factor to working at DraftKings. When you are working on a project as a team which most times is already fleshed out by product teams and managers and gone through reviews, at project kick-offs and review meetings, your ideas and opinions are heard and taken seriously. An atmosphere is created where giving an opinion which you believe is valuable is the organic decision you make."

Tyler Dowse
Business Data Analyst

"Since my first day on the job, I’ve always felt like my ideas have been valued. Because DraftKings is so reliant on data-driven decision making, everyone in the company is willing to open up to your ideas if you have the data to back them up. Age, position, and experience have no negative impacts on how you are perceived at DraftKings, which makes for a very productive and collaborative workplace."

Ellen Kim
Senior Software Engineer

"I've found that working with really intelligent people to build new products motivates me to continue our journey at DraftKings together. Learning and sharing a variety of knowledge with each other, and solving technical problems together keeps me really interested in the industry and makes me feel highly valued at DraftKings every day."

Jessie Haffey
Senior Software Engineering Manager

"The problems we solve are unique because we’re dealing with live sporting events. Most tech products deal with relatively predictable traffic, as where our traffic on an NFL Sunday could be significantly higher than any other day of the week and might vary drastically minute to minute based on the game."

Jeff Singer
Tech Lead

"The first time I saw the engineering team work on a production outage, I was amazed by the deep understanding of our systems, the professionalism, and the urgency that my colleagues brought to the table. I have never seen anything else like it in my career as a software engineer."
