We are #TeamSBTech, an award-winning leading provider of sports betting solutions, and you know us. We have been in this market for 4 years growing, building amazing technology and family.
And as of April 2020, we combined with DraftKings (Nasdaq: DKNG) – a digital sports entertainment and gaming company known for its industry-leading daily fantasy sports and mobile sports betting platforms.
DraftKings Inc. is a digital sports entertainment and gaming company. It’s simple, at DraftKings, we’re committed to responsibly creating the world’s favourite games and betting experiences. Headquartered in Boston, MA, with offices around the globe, we believe we can continue to define what it means to be a technology company in sports entertainment. We love what we do, and think you will too.
What is our technical challenge?
Our unit is responsible for sports content delivery. Sports data domain is very reactive by nature, so we have to push a huge number of changes (several thousand per sec) to several thousand clients in near real-time manner. One part of our solution is a data streaming platform. In addition to data streaming, we are building a PUSH-based queryable API which allows retrieving data with SQL-like queries and subscribing to PUSH updates. This concept is very similar to RethinkDb ChangeFeed.
What is our tech stack?
We extensively use .NET Core and microservices approach. From the code perspective, we are mixing C#/OOP (for IO bound operations, infrastructure) with F#/FP (Domain logic, TDD). We keep our functional code approachable to C# developers and we’ll help you learn FP and distributed systems design. Our data streaming platform is based on Kafka and stateful services. For logs, we use ELK, for metrics — InfluxDb + Grafana. The API is based on ASP.NET Core. We use MongoDb for data snapshots.
Here we’re working really hard (yet not burning-out-hard), but also learning and developing fast (like Usain-Bolt-fast). We are looking for smart and focused people who represent the team spirit and are trustworthy allies in achieving great results. The business environment provokes us to be dynamic and innovative and that’s exactly what we are. We offer great career opportunities – you simply must seize them.
