The Crown Is Yours

We're growing quickly and we’re looking for a Lead Software Engineer to help establish and lead a team centered around the mission of providing a best-in-class experience for our customers. This position requires strong technical skills and a bias toward collaboration. You will be working across teams, informing business decisions, and helping to expand our enterprise software platform.

What you’ll do as a Lead Software Engineer

  • Take ownership for the design, development, maintenance, testing strategy, and operations of a full-stack team, with API services written primarily in C# with SQL databases hosted in AWS.

  • Collaborate with business leads across the company to define milestones and deliveries for new functionality to be added to existing applications.

  • Care about agility as much as you care about scalability. We roll out products very quickly and are looking for a team that can pivot at a moment’s notice.

  • Work with your team under fast deadlines to design, build, and deliver innovative applications.

  • Lead your team in design sessions and ensure your team delivers high-quality work that aligns with the missions of our applications and platform.

What you’ll bring

  • 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 with at least one object-oriented language like C# or Java.

  • Experience with .NET Framework or .NET Core is preferred.

  • You have strong relational database skills using technologies like MySQL or SQL Server.

  • Familiarity with modern cloud technologies, such as AWS services and infrastructure.

  • You also have the ability to write automated comprehensive test suites at all levels of the architecture.

Join Our Team

We’re a publicly traded (NASDAQ: DKNG) technology company headquartered in Boston.
