Our quantitative research team aims to challenge the state-of-the-art in sports analytics. We aggregate techniques from leading open-source sports prediction models and develop our own proprietary methods to incorporate live data into a real-time market making strategy.
You’ll work on advanced models and data ingestion pipelines as part of the first end-to-end sports trading platform ever built. You’ll apply your experience in machine learning and prediction modeling to build a rigorous understanding of sports analytics. With specialized knowledge in at least one of the major American leagues, you will also serve as the stats specialist for your respective sport domains.
We are taking the first steps toward the “financialization" of the sports betting industry, and it starts with our focus on research and technology.
We’re a nimble team of researchers, engineers, statisticians, and other flavors of nerd who want to tackle some of the most challenging open-ended problems at the intersection of sports, game theory, and technology.
If you enjoy solving hard interdisciplinary problems, then you’ll enjoy working at Novig.

At Novig, we are building the first high-frequency, commission-free sports trading platform in the US — essentially the NASDAQ of betting.
We guarantee bettors the best odds and eliminates the need for traditional sportsbooks. We do this by enabling users to bet directly against friends or the market, rather than against the house, making the betting experience more efficient, fair, and, most importantly, profitable.
Novig’s founders, Jacob and Kelechi, are recent Harvard grads with experience at Jane St & BoA who started Novig with the believe that a commission-free P2P exchange model will replace the exploitative and unprofitable betting model of traditional sportsbooks. They themselves were sophisticated sports bettors who grew increasingly frustrated by the latency, discriminatory practices, monotony, and non-profitability of the retail sportsbook betting experience.
As the regulatory landscape evolves in the United States, Novig is positioned to become a leading innovator in sports betting with our unique focus on research and technology.
We are big believers in providing excellent compensation to everyone on the team as we build the future of sports betting.
We are embarking on an ambitious journey and are committed to providing generous benefits, even at this early stage.
