Skillz is working hard to change the gaming world and we need your help! Skillz is the first mobile tournament platform with real cash prizes, enabling a unique monetization method that enhances, rather than interrupts gameplay. Now game developers can host both cash and virtual currency multiplayer tournaments inside their mobile games with a simple 10 minute integration.
Our team comes from diverse backgrounds having founded successful startups, built award winning game companies and managed teams at well known companies like Atari. We know how to build and scale disruptive technology companies.
Skillz is venture-backed with funding from well known venture capitalists including Atlas Venture and Nextview Ventures and is growing rapidly. We are looking for the right team members to join us on our quest to change the video game world. Are you ready to play?
We are a team of intelligent individuals who come from successful startups and companies including Google, Kayak, ITA Software, and The Mathworks. Each day at Skillz begins with at least one video game and each week finishes with a bucket of cold beers. In between, we’re working tirelessly to build a truly novel and groundbreaking company. We are creators and builders with a “do whatever it takes” mentality, and we’re building a core team who will constitute the foundation on which monumental success will be built.
Who we’re looking for:
You epitomize versatility. You’re comfortable wearing many different hats and have a strong action-orientation. You are relentless in your approach to problem solving. Finding a killer idea and really smart co-workers is more important to you than job titles. You are ambitious, hungry, and smart. You’re looking for an early-stage startup that is as high potential as you are. Specific activites will include:
We typically have the associate fill this role for approximately 1 year and then help them transition into a role within one of the Skillz departments.
Our office is located right downtown by the Boston Aquarium with T access in building. We're a small team of just over 15 where you’ll get startup equity and big company benefits. We’re aggressively growing so drop us a line!
