An Insider's view of Jackpocket

How does your team reward individual success?

We have Friday Wins to celebrate what people have accomplished over the last week: new designs, new features in the app, new ads, marketing successes, etc. Throughout the day, people will give you shoutouts for good work on our Slack channels. Our CEO does a really good job of recognizing ideas and giving feedback.



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 so use customer feedback to enhance the app.


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 fazes 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. Maybelle (our office dog) is usually running around. The people are a family.
