We're thrilled to announce that Jackpocket has been named a Built In 2024 Best Places to Work winner!
The annual awards include companies of all sizes, from startups to major enterprises, nationally and in the eight largest tech markets. Check us out on the 100 Best Midsize Places to Work in Los Angeles list.
This is the third year in a row that Jackpocket has received recognition in the Best Places to Work awards program—and we couldn’t be prouder.
"It’s an honor to be recognized again by Built In as a Best Place to Work, a testament to the hard work of our amazing team this year and the collaborative environment we’ve built together over the years," said Peter Sullivan, founder and CEO of Jackpocket. "As we embark on further expansion into the entertainment space, we remain committed to nurturing our distinct culture anchored in transparency, respect, and innovation. The work of our dedicated team continues to propel Jackpocket as the leading lottery app in the nation."
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation and benefits. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.
What It's Like to Work at Jackpocket
Jackpocketeers enjoy competitive salaries and stock options, 401(k) matching, generous PTO, comprehensive health insurance packages, access to perks and benefits like SoFi and Fetch, and career growth and promotion from within.
Everything we do is based on our core values of transparency, persistence, and respect. We work hard to emphasize a feeling of belonging. A few of our favorites:
We have several employee-led resource groups including Pride @ Jackpocket, Women of Jackpocket, and Asian Pacific Islanders Plus to provide support and create a safe space in the workplace.
Jackpocketeers can sign up to be paired with random teammates for a digital Meet and Greet. We can get matched with new teammates quarterly for a chance to connect across regions and job roles, so an Operations Associate in Arizona can chat with a Designer in New Jersey and more!
The entire company logs on monthly for virtual Friday Wins—all of us on Zoom celebrating successes across individuals and departments and made complete with a delivered lunch to every employee's door. Success can be big or small like a new internal contract routing system that will save us time, the wrap on our latest commercial shoot and the behind-the-scenes process for naming a new feature.
We love shoutouts! Our entire team votes on Jackpocketeer of the Quarter, recognizing one of our teammates who went above and beyond. The winner is announced in our Quarterly Newsletter with plenty of glowing quotes from the folks who nominated them.

Jackpocket continued our remarkable growth in 2023, including launching in new locations like Arizona, Massachusetts, Nebraska and Puerto Rico, unveiling our first desktop product, forging new partnerships with Gannnett (USA Today Network) and professional sports teams like the Boston Red Sox, and expanding our entertainment options beyond the lottery.
