Prophet, the first pure peer-to-peer U.S. sports betting exchange has announced the establishment of the company’s headquarters in Hoboken, New Jersey, the epicenter of the fast-growing U.S. sports betting market. Prophet’s headquarters will be home to the company’s leadership and operational teams, supplemented by additional staff working remotely worldwide, enabling Prophet to attract and employ a diverse, highly skilled and experienced team in each of its core business areas.
“The establishment of our headquarters in New Jersey is another important building block in the development of Prophet ahead of our full consumer launch in Fall, 2021,” commented CEO and Cofounder Dean Sisun. “New Jersey has solidified itself as the new home of sports betting in the USA, thus making it the natural place for us to have our headquarters. The physical space we will occupy in Hoboken provides us with the opportunity to build the company culture we want to create at the heart of our business.
“Over the coming weeks, we will be announcing a range of significant new hires to all levels of our team,” Sisun continued. “We are bringing in experienced, creative, passionate people from some of the biggest names in the global sports betting industry who are energized by what we are building at Prophet, and who are all focused on helping us achieve our targets. Most of those new hires will be based in New Jersey, while others will work with us remotely from different parts of the world. This mix gives us the chance to employ the very best people in the business globally, irrespective of geography, and at the heart of our team will be the creative, innovative culture that will define who we are, and which will help guide the development of Prophet for years to come.
“Developing the right culture will be a key foundation for the long-term success of Prophet,” Sisun explained. “Prophet is a unique peer-to-peer sports betting exchange – our users will be able to set their own odds, take advantage of even (+100) odds on spread and total markets as well as drastically better odds on moneyline markets, and have no limits on their action. This is truly a one-of-a-kind sports betting marketplace, and we want our business to be fueled by a culture that recognizes and supports the unique position we have and our ability to offer such an attractive product to our users. Our team will be comprised of sports bettors building and operating the best product for sports bettors.”
