Posted on Monday, June 17, 2024

We’re defining what it means to build and deliver the most extraordinary sports and entertainment experiences. Our global team is trailblazing new markets, developing cutting-edge products, and shaping the future of responsible gaming.

Here, “impossible” isn’t part of our vocabulary. You’ll face some of the toughest but most rewarding challenges of your career. They’re worth it. Channeling your inner grit will accelerate your growth, help us win as a team, and create unforgettable moments for our customers.

The Crown Is Yours

DraftKings is growing quickly and we’re looking for a Senior Lead Software Engineer to direct our engineering teams and influence our product roadmap. This is more than a technical position, though. You’ll be collaborating across teams, informing our business decisions, and creatively finding solutions to all of our scaling challenges.

What you’ll do as a Senior Lead Software Engineer

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

  • Collaborate with business leads across the company to define milestones and deliveries on very short time frames for new functionality to be added to existing systems.

  • You will be the first voice for the engineering organization on the systems your team owns.

  • Lead your team in design sessions and ensure your team delivers high-quality work that aligns with DraftKings' engineering strategy.

What you’ll bring

  • 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.

  • Solid cloud-native experience with containerized microservices, data grids, auto-scaling, and managed infrastructures.

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

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

  • Familiarity with AWS services and infrastructure.

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

  • Prior experience helping scale a rapidly growing company is a plus.

  • Excellent troubleshooting skills, real-time decision-making, and responsiveness to problem-solving that put the customer experience first.

Join Our Team

We’re a publicly traded (NASDAQ: DKNG) technology company headquartered in Boston. As a regulated gaming company, you may be required to obtain a gaming license issued by the appropriate state agency as a condition of employment. Don’t worry, we’ll guide you through the process if this is relevant to your role.
