Smarkets is a betting exchange that offers a secure and transparent platform for trading on all major sports, as well as a range of niche and special markets in Politics, TV and Entertainment, and Current Affairs.
The access they have to deep market data makes Smarkets function as a prediction exchange – used to predict the outcomes of major events, including elections, awards ceremonies, and sporting fixtures.
Smarkets was founded in 2008 and is backed by a consortium of private investors. We are rapidly growing, having posted 400% year-on-year growth, had traded over £1 billion on through their exchange by June of this year, and the valuation swelling to over £100 million within the last year.
Smarkets has a self-management culture: no managers/hierarchy, unlimited holidays, the freedom for developers to work on any project they want to, and full visibility throughout the company. On top of competitive salaries, they offer a bunch of cool perks – free food and drinks, stand up desks on wheels, parties on Friday etc.
