About Kickback

Since being founded in December 2014 we’ve built some of the largest skill-gaming and gambling products for desktop games on the internet. We’re funded by some of the best in gaming, including Mark Pincus (Zynga), Justin Kan (Twitch), and Y Combinator.

We are constantly solving tough and interesting problems — AI algorithms for matchmaking; automated anti-fraud; automated server hosting + scaling packaged up and delivered quickly through a beautiful frontend powered by ember.

Our engineering team has a strong focus on operating efficiently and automating everything that could help us move faster. We rely heavily on continuous deployment and constantly ship small, incremental changes. From the beginning we were built by a remote-friendly team; half of our current team works remotely.
