About Skillz:

With over 200 game studio partners and hundreds of thousands of matches played daily, Skillz is changing the gaming industry with the first mobile tournament platform featuring real cash prizes. Our technology enables a unique monetization method that enhances gameplay instead of interrupting it, increasing revenue by monetizing gamers in a way that aligns with their competitive nature. Now, game developers can enable a full-featured multiplayer gaming system with cash and point prizes, achievements, loyalty rewards and more with a simple 10 minute SDK integration. 

We are venture-backed by well known venture capital firms including Atlas Venture and Nextview Ventures and growing rapidly.  In our quest to make games better for both gamers and developers, we seek the right team members to join in our vision. 

Our culture:

Our team is comprised of passionate, sharp, creative individuals who constantly seek out new challenges and knowledge.  We come from diverse backgrounds, having funded and sold successful startups, built award-winning games, and worked at well known companies such as Google, Atari and ITA Software. We know how to build and scale disruptive technology companies, and we want your help!

You can find us playing video games in the office every Thursday night or discussing everything from hip-hop to Bitcoin to cutting-edge player matching algorithms over dinner.  The rest of the time, 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 out our 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:

  • Marketing/Public Relations support
  • Finance/Admin/Human Resources support
  • Product/Publisher Relations/Customer Service support

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.

Your skillz:

  • 4-year degree from a top tier university, or a fantastic explanation for why you don’t need one.
  • 0 - 2 years professional experience, ideally in a technology company (mobile gaming preferred!)
  • Highly polished written and oral communication skills.
  • Excellent problem solving skills.
  • A history of achievement demonstrated by professional accomplishments or a top GPA.
  • Preference for social media and blogging knowledge.
  • Ability to work autonomously in an unstructured environment.
  • A desire and willingness to learn about all areas of a business.

Our office is located right downtown in San Francisco. We're a small team of just over 20 where you’ll get startup equity and big company benefits. We’re aggressively growing so drop us a line!
