COMPANY
This is a betting company with a difference. It’s based on the idea that betting amongst friends and fellow punters can be a fun and social activity, specifically designer to limit the amount of money people can bet and instead chooses to focus on the interaction and fun of winning prizes and leader boards. It aims to socialise the sports betting industry!
 
Seeing that sports betting can be a polarising subject, I wanted to add some context if you are on the fence about applying.
 
Sports betting and pokies are two very separate and different industries and people assume that sports betting is the same as pokies/slot machines. Around 70 per cent (~17m) of Australians participate in some form of social and online betting (ABC News). The overwhelming majority bet in a fun and social manner. That being said, 95,000 pokies players are considered problem gamblers.
 
Ok that being said, most people involved do it for fun and the social aspect of it. So, if you are ok with that then read on!
 


ROLE
This is an exciting opportunity to jump in and reimagine the whole concept and product offering! You’ll have Carte Blanche to reimagine the social betting experience.
As the UX researcher, your mission will be to understand the current platform which is 75% mobile and 25% web; it’s pros and cons, opportunities and limitations and then determine what is the best way forward.
The outcome of this contract will be to deliver user-tested ideas on what is most likely to work and succeed as part of the platform rebuild.
 
Day to day, you’ll be involved with UX tasks such as defining user types and personas, conducting workshops and interviews, heuristic evaluation, contextual enquiry, testing hypothesis and coming up with a way to make sports betting more fun and social.
 
You will be well supported by management who are eager and open to listen to fresh and innovative ideas.
 
At its heart the product is a betting platform designer with social at its core. Other than that the sky is the limit. The founders are happy to reimagine the whole platform based on your research, insights and recommendations.

 
 
YOU

  • Experienced background working on a product with folio/case studies to back it up
  • A deeply analytical mind that thrives on research and data as tools to inform designs
  • An ability to conduct deep design thinking, understand the problem and generate innovative ideas
  • A passion for sports or entertainment is a bonus
  • No UI required (but lo-fi prototyping and wireframing ability are handy)
 
BENEFITS
  • High level of autonomy/responsibility to deliver an innovative product, you can start completely from scratch if that is the best way forward.
  • Who knows, this could be your chance to revolutionise the online betting industry!
