ABOUT US

Gambyt's mission is to make real-money gaming products more relevant and accessible to the world. We are specialists in the lottery industry and create products that deliver life-changing winning moments to players while raising billions of dollars every year for good causes such as public education, nature conservancy, and programs for seniors.

Through our agile software development practice, we create digital products such as games, loyalty programs, and user experiences that are loved by players. Our team consists of extremely talented product managers, UX/UI designers, software engineers, project managers and quality testers that collaborate closely to achieve our vision.

We have rebuilt our company around a remote-work engagement model with a vibrant downtown office space that can be used at employees discretion. We ship cookie subscriptions and offer GrubHub delivery credits to our remote staff to extend office perks into the home and organize monthly virtual activities that help to build strong connections across our team.

We are headquartered in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which was ranked as a top 3 tech hub by Bloomberg, and is located in the first state in the country where all forms of internet wagering (lottery, casino, sports) have been legalized. We are on the ground floor of an industry revolution that is ripe for digital disruption and looking to expand our world-class team.


DEVELOPMENT CULTURE

We work in an agile framework and believe in utilizing strong team communication, pair programming, and CI/CD to drive our success. We take testing seriously and utilize a variety of testing strategies to ensure we are always delivering high-quality software.

Our tech stack consists of TypeScript, Node, Express, Postgres, and Redis. We host and manage our infrastructure on AWS and Heroku. Experience with these technologies is not required and our mentorship and onboarding program is an immersive onramp that will help you become a meaningful contributor to our software engineering deliverables.
