FanDuel – Why Work For Us?


The birth of Daily Fantasy, as we know it

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.

Work where you want – Wherever that is

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.

The FanDuel way

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.

    Web Developer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FanDuel in May 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical challenge was a mix of technical skills and problem solving. Difficult to prepare for, but working through it with the interviewers was suggested to see how you could also work as a team. If you think clear and discuss it should be doable.   Answer Question
