Location

In the heart of Chelsea, our office is a stone's throw away from the best restaurants, fitness studios, and outdoor space the city has to offer.

An Insider's view of Prizeout

What’s the vibe like in the office?

We've assembled a group of people who genuinely enjoy coming to work everyday. Every person who works at Prizeout is just as committed to projects where they’re the unsung lineman as they are when they’re the hero quarterback. As a result, we really like being around each other, in and out of the office.

KC

Product Marketing Manager

What projects are you most excited about?

I am most excited about working on Prizeout's fraud detection suite. Building out a platform to both passively and actively detect fraud in our systems not only requires an understanding of system scalability, it also requires us to deeply understand the product space that we are working in. It's critical that we always stay one step ahead.

Sagar

Lead Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

We're a team of people who think differently and bring vastly ranged experiences with us. We're all used to wearing many hats, but it's the winning attitude and understanding that what we're doing is truly unique that unites us. It's these attitudes and desires to be great that continue to drive Prizeout's success.

Travis

Director of Product Management

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We've created an environment in which people are encouraged to try everything, measure, and either scale that idea or move on quickly.

David

CEO

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

If the Business Development Team has an idea about changing process or adding a feature, the ideas are not only welcomed, they are enthusiastically put in motion. It gives our team the ability to really take care of our partners and make a big impact on the growth of Prizeout.

Holly

EVP of Merchants
