An Insider's view of Caesars Sportsbook & Casino

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I partner closely with our Digital Hub team, comprised of Product Tech, Digital Operations, and Marketing. The Executives who lead these teams are some of the most innovative and driven leaders I’ve ever worked with. As we continue to rapidly grow, our goal is to ensure that we build a collaborative culture, set clear objectives, and have fun

Alexandra

Assistant Director of Human Resources

What are some things you learned at the company?

The need to strategically plan to scale personnel at exponential rates is one of the biggest learned experiences for me. Proactively hiring and building teams ahead of lofty, yet realistic growth expectations has ensured we scale effectively and efficiently.

Chris

Manager of Digital & Marketing Talent Acquisition Partner

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

I believe in a non-hierarchical way of managing my team which leaves room for honest and open discussions. I genuinely believe this encourages the team to work deferentially and organically forces them to think of ways to be innovative and be true to their respective creative problem-solving selves and to be part of the solution.

Vanessa

Program Director U.S. Digital State Expansion

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I am just as excited and motivated today, as I was during my initial on-boarding and that is a direct result of the success achieved through the ability to work together. As a member of the team, I am confident that no matter what challenges may surface, Caesars Digital will conquer them together.
