Simplebet is using modern technology to enable sports betting market creation and trading to become best-in-class with automation and algorithmic odds. This creates more betting opportunities between development of new markets, enables more efficient pricing and significantly increases uptime.   

We are also recreating the sports betting user experience – enabling casual fans to interact with products that are simple, intuitive, and entertaining.    

We are in growth mode as we look to enhance our risk management services team and provide our partners with a complete end-to-end solution for in-play wagering. 

The Role: We're looking to hire part-time US Sports Traders to oversee our specific markets for college basketball, college football, MLB, NBA, and NFL on a game-by game basis. This role will be split between a few main responsibilities that include risk management, odds compiling, and live trading.

Primary Responsibilities:

    • Monitoring all pricing for real-time odds and ensuring that our data flows from our data collections partners are being recorded accurately
    • Live trading of all Simplebet markets as it pertains to college basketball, college football, MLB, NBA, and NFL
    • Trading operations to include settlement of markets, suspension of markets and creation of markets
    • Analyzing and monitoring risk in accordance with Simplebet risk management procedures.
    • Enhancing customer experience with real-time support, communicating effectively with both internal and external partners regarding any feed issues or market mechanics
    • Working closely with our Sportsbook Monitoring team to ensure that odds are being displayed accurately on operator's sites
    • Building out customer risk profiles and working with our Customer Analytics and Games team to enhance personalization within our betting ecosystem
    • Monitoring and analyzing customer betting patterns and trends. 
    • Analyzing pricing and trading performance while working closely with our machine-learning-engineering team to enhance our models
    • Maximizing uptime of all Simplebet markets with manual market creation if necessary
As a US Sports Trader, you'll play a pivotal role in the overall execution and performance of Simplebet markets. You will join a fast-growing team that is looking to revolutionize the power of in-play wagering. You will immediately gain an understanding of the different market types we offer, and how to manage these markets to ensure we maintain a high level of performance for our customers. This is an opportunity which requires working Saturdays and Sundays and holidays during live sporting events but with flexible hours throughout the week. This is an entry-level role and an amazing opportunity to learn about our industry!
