DraftKings has opened state-of-the-art offices in Hoboken, New Jersey, and Las Vegas, Nevada, in the last 10 months.
“Among the iconic sports teams and landmarks, San Francisco is an ideal combination of design, culture and technology,” said Matt Kalish, Co-Founder and President, DraftKings North America. “Our committed, in-house marketing team could not be more excited to channel the spirit of the Bay Area in establishing DraftKings as an influential fixture of the West Coast as we continue to provide sports fans with the ultimate in creative sports-entertainment content.”
Occupying the entire fourth floor on Sutter Street in downtown San Francisco, the brand-new office is decked out in DraftKings’ branding and floor-to-ceiling murals of some of the region’s most iconic views and athletes, including the Golden Gate Bridge and Golden State Warriors’ Steph Curry. Made possible through DraftKings’ introductory collaboration with Knotel, a flexible workspace platform, the new space will house top talent with experience and expertise in the tech industry, as well as DraftKings’ marketing personnel.
