Insider's spotlight

How does your team reward individual success?

A few ways. First, there's spoken recognition during daily scrum when different teams meet to go over what we accomplished the day before and what we're currently working on. Everyone, including our CEO, gives shoutouts for great work on Slack. Then at Friday Wins, people have the opportunity to show the rest of the company what they've achieved.


DevOps Engineer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Anything that will help Jackpocket users is part of my realm! Day to day that could mean working with developers to "check under the hood" and investigate potential issues, with the marketing team to ensure we're using consistent brand voice with our customers, or with product strategy to report customer feedback so we can continue to enhance.


Customer Service

What are some things you learned at the company?

I joined Jackpocket in the early days, when there were only 6 of us, and knew absolutely nothing about the lottery industry. It’s exciting because there is no roadmap for the problem we’re trying to solve. We get to build everything from scratch. It’s a unique opportunity and a challenge—nothing phases us!



How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

If we have ideas, we can run with them. And then before you know it, it’s a key feature to our business. People aren’t telling you no. I’ve been with Jackpocket since the beginning and a couple of big company milestones came about from a question like “Hey, could we get this to work…?” that someone took ownership of and ran with.



What’s the vibe like in the office?

It’s a friendly, comfortable atmosphere, and we interact with each other in a low-pressure way. We love to go to lunch and happy hours together, and we have a rooftop deck where we can relax or even grill. Maybelle (our office dog) is usually running around. The people are a family.
