FanDuel open new tech hub in Edinburgh
FanDuel has made a move to reinforce its commitment to invest in its people, and the new Edinburgh site is open to staff across the UK and those visiting from the US.
The Hub is intended to bring together skilled project teams across the UK tech, engineering, product and user-experience communities as the sports-tech company seeks to create 250 engineering jobs this year in support of its mobile sportsbook, casino, and racing platforms.
It added that it is enjoying a period of “extraordinary” growth, and its parent company, the FTSE100 gambling giant Flutter, “recently reported earnings driven by FanDuel’s performance”.
This included $750 million (£662m) in revenue in the second quarter, which helped the company become the first online operator to record a profit in the US, according to FanDuel.
