About Kickback

Kickback is builds products for the esports industry.

We started out in 2014 building a way for the average player of Minecraft or Counter Strike to play against other, equally skilled players for prizes.

We’ve grown since then into building brands on the internet that let users play in video games, esports, traditional games (with a twist) and more. We believe that lies in building transparent, engaging game modes that everyone in the community can play, while providing the best support and maximizing fairness for all our players.

Since being founded in December 2014 we’ve built some of the largest gaming products on the internet. Millions of players have won across our products. We’re funded by Y Combinator.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Kickback. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
