Your First Job in Esports:
Do you enjoy playing and watching DOTA 2, CS:GO, Overwatch, LoL, Hearthstone or PUBG? Have a deep understanding of the mechanics and metas? Enjoy working with new technologies? Then working for BlinkPool could be your first job in esports.
What is BlinkPool?
BlinkPool is the only UK regulated real-money esports trading platform. Users test their knowledge of esports against the community by wagering on in-game events throughout live games.
What is an Esports Trader?
An Esports Trader’s job is to create interesting and engaging markets (i.e.questions) for BlinkPool users to wager on. This is done using our state of the art computer vision technology and the Trader’s knowledge of esport games.
Who are we looking for?
Although no previous experience in the industry is required we are looking for the following in potential Esport Traders:
A gamer: First and foremost you need to understand the game you are making markets for. You don’t have to be 7k MMR, in Challenger division, Legendary Eagle or Grandmaster but understanding the meta and current patches is imperative.
Analytical: Being an Esports Trader requires more than just watching the game. You will need to watch, analyse and think of questions all at the same time as monitoring the markets and users.
A problem solver: We have some high tech tools at our disposal but things go wrong (a lot less often than they used to) so there will be times when you will need to work out problems on the fly.
Comfortable with numbers: The brain of Einstein won’t be necessary but at the end of the day esports are a game of numbers and so is BlinkPool.
Passionate: Passionate for esports. Passionate for gaming. Passionate for working on something different. Passionate.
Benefits of being an Esports Trader:
The work itself is part-time, flexible and with the ability to work in our offices in London or at home makes it ideal for student life. If you pass the initial selection process, training will be in London. Training is paid for and all travel expenses will be covered.
