We Want Talent!

I am likely to be severely reprimanded for using this forum to post a blatant advertisement. Apologies in advance.

While others are downsizing, and we face a reduction in trading volumes after the election we are still looking to add to our small team. This contrarian behaviour which you may rightly view as at-odds with crowd wisdom is probably another reason for being reprimanded.

If you are interested in being part of a small team who are passionate about the role and potential of prediction markets, a new niche that Intrade has in part created you will find details here.

Some additional information…
  • We have a small number of big initiatives that need additional resources
  • There are less than 20 full time people employed at Intrade everyone has the opportunity to have a big impact
  • Our comment to the CFTC on the treatment of prediction markets is here, and all industry comments are here
  • We have an exciting plan for a future that needs better information and transparency
If you really believe you have a lot to offer, I would love to hear from you.

Best regards,


John Delaney


Update October 28: We are thrilled to have received over 100 high quality applicants in the last week or so. It will take us a little time to work through them all and revert to people. Thanks for your patience in the interim.

    Hi John,

I'm a big fan of Intrade here in the UK, and opportunities opening up in Europe?

    Do you have a need for online marketing experts? (specifically a Pay Per Click manager who would manage search and content marketing?)

Also, are you willing to hire a candidate from the US?

    Hi I'm a political science college student at an Ivy League university in the US, and I think that this site could draw some major interest among students. Anything opportunities for me to work for you? Even non-paid?

Hi J.P.,

Thank you for your interest.

Why don't you consider applying for one of our summer internships to recruitment@intrade.com?

Additionally, if you wish to send a couple of articles to us we will be very happy to consider them for publication before next summer.

Best regards,
