Mission: Make sports more exciting!
What started as a backyard Texas brainstorm between 5 co-founders is now the driving force in a multibillion-dollar industry. FanDuel got its start at the 2009 SXSW Interactive festival — right there in that backyard — when our founding team decided to focus their efforts on changing the game in fantasy sports.
The season-long game would be simplified. The winning amplified. The money real. And the result? A new way to play fantasy — fan vs. fan in a test of sports knowledge and fantasy knowhow — where winners can taste victory on any given day. Not just once a year.
We have offices in five cities across two continents. All great places to call your home turf. Yes, you’ll get to travel abroad if you want. Plus, you can work from home when you see fit.
What does “winning” look like at FanDuel? It’s recognition for your hard-earned results, a culture that brings out your best work — oh, and a roster full of talented coworkers. You could count the seconds ‘til 5 o’clock in some cubicle. Or you can help us shape the face of a fast-paced, billion-dollar industry. Did we mention it’s fantasy sports? Because that’s pretty cool.

The company communication can sometimes feel a bit deceptive
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FanDuel in May 2014.
Initial communications were clear and concise.
Arrived and was briefly shown around the office before interview start. Friendly and welcoming.
First hour (roughly) spent on general questions surrounding myself, my past experience/education, how I might fit into the company and what I know about the company.
Second hour (roughly) was a technical interview. Went well, more focussed on problem solving on general coding knowledge instead of the ins and outs of a language.
Third hour (roughly) was similar to the first, but more focussed on the technical side of my abilities.
Plenty of refreshments offered throughout and quite a casual feeling which helped make the atmosphere more relaxed, yet still formal.
Overall a good experience.
