About the role
At Smarkets, our mission is to create and run the best political prediction markets in the world and to make our markets the leading source of information for journalists, traders and citizens. As a result of our recent success in this area, we are now looking for people with similar passion and dedication to join our politics team at a very exciting stage of growth.
You’ll be researching key areas of interest in US and world politics, exploring how to create interesting markets to traders and journalists. You will also have the freedom to take a fresh approach to our markets and potentially have a major impact on the way we drive things moving forward.
If you believe that politics could be better understood if better communicated; if you want to work on real change in politics and want to make a difference, join our team.
- You have a good understanding of electoral systems around the world and the detail of how political systems work
- You have worked with G-Suite and maybe some productivity tools
- You have at least a basic understanding of prediction markets and an interest in political trading

Our people have a large impact on the product - be it changing the direction of our technical stack or pushing new features - you’ll be key in driving Smarkets forward.
Our culture is built on the principles of self-management and rewards people on merit and excellence, avoiding the bureaucracy of pyramid management. Ultimately we are a group of like-minded individuals who enjoy learning, playing, and eating the excellent meals provided by the chefs!
