Who is Askott?

Askott Entertainment is a full-service development company that combines our love of Esports with the regulated iGaming space. Having introduced the first esports daily fantasy site in 2014, we moved to develop a full suite of esports-first iGaming products. Well funded and growth focused, we are excited to hire for this key role.

Here is why people choose to work with Askott:

  • The Esports space is growing exponentially, it's exciting to be building products as new opportunities emerge, and this experience will be on your resume forever
  • The CTO is a co-founder, which means you will be highly involved in robust conversations on how to do things and how to make them better
  • Askott is the direct opposite of "do as you are told" - you are not a widget maker here
  • We offer all our employees competitive salaries, flexible work schedules, regular remote working, a generous flexible vacation policy and a comprehensive benefits plan.
  • We use modern continuous integration and deployment processes, so users have your work in their hands early and often.

This is why this particular position is worth considering:

  • Askott has more emphasis on the market itself and Esports- a young market, a start up company, a match made in heaven for growth
  • It has that energy and buzz where the best people are wanting to work
  • Lots of companies have their 1 product, 1 app, and simply adding features to it
  • Here, it is really a collection of front end products and you will develop, edit, and improve them - the number of prodcuts is growing
  • Whether it is adding live streaming or new scoring formats, there is exciting work ahead

If this resonates with you - please see if you are a match for this permanent, full time position.
