Sporttrade is a venture-backed fintech company disrupting the $10b sports betting industry. We are a sports betting exchange with a mission to elevate the sports betting industry by bringing innovation, liquidity, transparency and protection to customers.

At Sporttrade, we lift others up by valuing and encouraging positivity, empathy, and respect toward all stakeholders. We are curious, iterative, and innovative. We are unafraid to fail, and we support each other as we tackle and overcome rewarding challenges.

These responsibilities include inspiring change by defining research initiatives, delivering oral and written presentations, and contributing to the development of future strategic research and design decisions.

You should have experience creating and monitoring major research efforts, including the creation of customer feedback loops, be able to leverage both qualitative and quantitative research, generative and evaluative research, and surface invaluable insights to influence next steps and key decisions.
