Jackpocket, a third-party lottery app, was awarded a ‘Best Places To Work’ Award in the Best In 2022 awards. 

The lottery app firm featured in Best In’s ‘Best Places to Work and Best Midsize Companies to Work For lists in New York City’ as part of the awards program recognising ‘companies of all sizes, from startups to those in the enterprise, and honors both remote-first employers as well as companies in the eight largest tech markets across the US’.

“Jackpocket has grown immensely over the last year and we’ve truly doubled-down on making sure our culture and benefits would not only fully support our team, but also set an example for others,” says Peter Sullivan, founder and CEO of Jackpocket. 

“We’re honored to be recognised for the company culture we’ve worked hard to build — an egoless, collaborative atmosphere where people can create and grow. Our amazing team is what makes Jackpocket the leading digital lottery app in the U.S. We couldn’t do it without them.”

Jackpocket has experienced a period of growth following a $120m Series D funding round announced in November. 

Led by the consumer-internet-focused Left Lane Capital, the Series D funding comes from star names from business and entertainment including Kevin Hart, Whitney Cummings, Mark Cuban, Manny Machado.

Utilising the funding, the firm opened its second headquarters premises in the Santa Barbara Tech Sector, creating new jobs and growing its team on the West Coast, where it aims to make 15 new hires.

“It is my honor to extend congratulations to the 2022 Best Places to Work winners,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer of Built In. 

“This year saw a record number of entrants — and the past two years fundamentally changed what tech professionals want from work. These honorees have risen to the challenge, evolving to deliver employee experiences that provide the meaning and purpose today’s tech professionals seek.”
