What are we building?

Based in Austin, we are a team of designers and developers building a better customer experience in the fast-growing online sports betting space. On the back of a Supreme Court decision in favor of allowing the legalization of mobile sports betting in the USA, states across the country have begun regulating and opening up sports betting. Since 2018, over $25 billion has been legally wagered with the vast majority from mobile devices. While sports betting is a new industry in the US, the legacy technology powering the industry is not. We’re here to change that. We’re a passionate group of sports fans who are building the future of sports betting with customer-focused products and cutting-edge technology.
