State-of-the-Art, Back Bay Neighborhood Location is the Largest Single-Floor Office Space in Boston
BOSTON, March 26, 2019 – DraftKings Inc., today celebrated the opening of its new Boston headquarters, with Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito joining company co-founders Jason Robins, Paul Liberman and Matt Kalish for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony.
“Massachusetts has been home to DraftKings since our inception, and we take immense pride in being part of the vibrant technology community here,” said Robins, DraftKings CEO and Co-Founder. “Our new headquarters will foster innovation while providing a true homefield advantage as we work toward our goal of being the ultimate sports entertainment destination for fans.”
Tuesday’s ceremony celebrated the opening of a 105,000-square-foot space, which is the largest single-floor office plan in Boston and more than double the size of DraftKings’ previous Boston office.

“Massachusetts is home to a thriving innovation economy, and we are pleased that DraftKings is a part of that economy,” said Governor Baker. “We are glad to support an environment that encourages the expansion of Massachusetts-based tech companies like this one.”
To complement DraftKings’ collaborative workspace and culture, the office offers amenity centers along with lockers, showers and mother’s rooms. Since being founded in 2012, DraftKings has established office locations across the United States in California, Florida, Nevada, New Jersey and New York.
