Along with helping users on FanDuel, he enjoys cheering on his Irish, 49ers, Lakers, and Dodgers.

Martin ScottLead Java Developer
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 ShayCustomer Support Agent
Jake is a veteran sports blogger, podcast host and die-hard NY Giants fan. When not making dubious fantasy trade offers and prop bets, Jake can be found leading the company hoops team in both rebounds and missed jumpers. Just watch out after a Giants loss, and NEVER ask about the Knicks...

Pawel WitekJava Developer
Alex worked in financial services software for 18 years before achieving every slacker's dream of getting paid to think about fantasy sports at FanDuel. He's played fantasy since the days when 'live scoring' meant that the commissioner was able to pick up a copy of the Wednesday USA Today for the box scores, and claims to be the only person ever to calculate 'home lake advantage' for fantasy bass fishing tournaments.
