DevOps Engineer at Lottery Now (Remote)
Who we are
Can you think of an $80 Billion industry in the US that’s still experienced almost entirely on paper? If you guessed “The Lottery” you would be correct! When you add the cost and time of having to go to a retail outlet, pay cash for your transaction, and then ultimately dispose of your paper based ticket in a landfill, you can see that the industry is ripe for modernization.
At Lottery Now, we are on a mission to make playing the Lottery more sustainable, more convenient, and ultimately deliver more community impact by bringing the player’s experience into the 21st century. And most of all, we want to make the Lottery experience a lot more FUN! Our app, Mido Lotto, makes it simple to play the Lottery from the safety and comfort of your home, office, deck, or wherever you happen to be! With nearly 10,000 five-star reviews in the Apple App Store, we pride ourselves on having built a product that people love.
We are a small but growing team operating under the leadership of seasoned Silicon Valley titans. The company is experiencing astronomical growth and is hiring across all sectors of our business. We are looking for key people to join the founding team in making an out-sized contribution to both the direction and velocity of our organization.
