WHAT IS PRIZEOUT?

Prizeout is a first-in-class solution that offers innovative alternative methods to the traditional cash-out process. We connect brands that are looking to acquire and retain customers with platforms that have users who are looking to withdraw funds.

WHY PRIZEOUT?

At Prizeout, you will be able to make an immediate impact at an early-stage start-up with the unique opportunity to grow with us by joining at an exciting time. We are a small, collaborative team looking for like-minded individuals that are eager to dive right in from day one.

WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING:

  •  Design and build systems quickly that scale as our company does

  • Wear many software development hats from building APIs to writing schemas to ensure unit tests and logging services are up-to-date

  • Influence the long term-term architecture and technical direction of our platform and scale our backend systems

  • Ensure our applications are secured and easy to build, test, and deploy

  • Collaborate with other engineers, product owners, and designers to solve interesting and challenging problems and build high-quality experiences for our product

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:

  •  3+ years of development experience, ideally in a microservice architecture using languages such as Node.js and Python

  • Experience working with distributed systems in a cloud computing environment

  • Relational database experience including schema design and best practices; DBA experience a plus

  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic, fast-paced, collaborative, and high-growth environment with the ability to adjust to changing priorities and make tradeoffs when guidance is limited and information incomplete

  •  Team player first and foremost; Self-starter with strong communication skills and a get-it-done approach

Location

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

Head of Content

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

Senior 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

Head of Product

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.

Head of Merchants
