$2M - $5M Funding
Pre-Series A

We are building a mobile-first sports betting app with a focus on social and game mechanics.


Why join us?
  • Best Time to Join - The company is well-funded but still small which is the best time to join because you get all the upside of getting in on the bottom floor (e.g. maximizing equity) but minimize the risk of not having enough runway to survive.

  • Quality of the Team - Truly high-performing teams are hard to come by; joining FTW gives you an opportunity to collaborate with, learn from, and grow together with like-minded, successful tech veterans who have a track record of building great products at companies such as Zynga, Google, and Groupon.

  • Chance to Build Something Revolutionary - The market is ripe for disruption and there's no doubt that whoever cracks the puzzle will win the market. This is also a rare opportunity for you to build a large-scale consumer app that potentially millions of people will use (instead of, say, boring old enterprise software that few people touch!).

  • Be A Cultural Founder - Getting in this early means that you get to actually mold the company culture and experience what it’s like to be a true entrepreneur.

Engineering team and processes

We are a very small team that follows Agile processes. Our sprint cycles are two weeks long and we end each sprint with a retrospective and sprint planning meetings. That being said, since we building out our initial team, you will have a say in setting up our operating practices and evolving it over time.

Technical Challenges

Since we are building realtime systems that with a high level of concurrency. The challenges on the backend are to process events in realtime at scale with an extremely high uptime and resilience.

Challenges on the frontend range from creating elegant and user friendly interactions to processing realtime events over a websocket connection and maintaining a consistent state across both the frontend and backend.
