DraftKings opens its second office in less than a year
DraftKings has inaugurated its new 7,500-square-foot office space in Hoboken, New Jersey, which features state-of-the-art technology including; Dashboards, Zoom Rooms, and a television wall. The office is expected to cater to more than 50 employees.
“The first year of legalised sports betting in New Jersey exceeded all of our expectations and projections,” said DraftKings COO and Co-Founder, Paul Liberman. “The new office space will allow us to increase our presence in the Garden State and bring even more innovation and offerings to our customers here. We’re looking forward to becoming a bigger part of the New Jersey tech scene as we grow our products, creating the best betting and daily fantasy experience in the market.”
DraftKings has seen an enormous amount of success in New Jersey in the past year alone. The DraftKings Sportsbook app, which launched in the state last August, has taken in more than 17 million bets and paid out more than half a billion dollars in winnings. In addition to being the first-to-market mobile and online sportsbook in the state, DraftKings also opened a physical sportsbook at Resorts Casino Hotel in Atlantic City.
“Since the launch of our Sportsbook, we have seen an unprecedented amount of growth,” said Jamie Shea, DraftKings Head of Sportsbook Digital. “As we look to build on the success of our Sportsbook product even further, the new office will help us provide even better odds, content and rewards to the wonderful people of New Jersey and beyond.”
This will be the second new DraftKings office to open in 2019. The company unveiled a new, 105,000-square-foot headquarters in Boston’s Back Bay in May. The new space in New Jersey takes design cues from the Boston headquarters and features state-of-the-art technology throughout.
