We’d like to introduce you to the two newest additions to the FanDuel team. Scott Shay (username: ScottAtFanduel) and Jen Giudice (username: JenAtFanDuel) join our customer support team as Customer Support Agents.
Jen graduated from Wentworth Institute of Technology, in Boston, with a BS in Industrial Design. Prior to joining the team she served as Associate Manager at Under Armour. Although she lived in Boston for 4 years, she still stayed committed to the ever-lovable New York Yankees. However, during basketball season, she does root for the Celtics. In addition to following the Yankees and Celtics Jen is also an avid volleyball and softball player.
Scott was once junior ping-pong champion in a 12 and under league, as a 14-year-old. You’ll have to ask him for the details about that one. Scott has a self-described “unhealthy long-term relationship” with the New York Knicks which is something I imagine a lot of Knick fans can identify with. Scott has terrible stage fright, a background in musical performance, and girls usually break up with him during the NBA season.
Scott and Jen are both knowledgeable fantasy veterans and we’re excited to add two enthusiastic and well-qualified members to our team. Scott and Jen will allow us to serve our customers’ needs better and faster than ever before, even as we face a rush of new users for the upcoming NFL season.
We’ve taken another step towards our goal of a fully-featured, streamlined mobile experience. FanDuel users have already been able to sign up, log-in, edit lineups, and view live scoring on their mobile devices. We’re now excited to announce mobile lobby functionality. Entering contests from your mobile device is easier than ever. Upon logging in you’ll be presented with a streamlined menu to select your preferred sport, contest type, and more to allow you to locate the upcoming contests you’d like to enter. Upon entering you will be able to easily fill out your roster using our existing lineup editing feature.
Keep an eye out for our mobile “Add Funds” coming soon, and please pass along any feedback about this new feature.
