Welcome to Player Profile! Each month we’ll feature a member of our all-star lineup with a Sports and Company Culture Q&A.
For this month’s Player Profile, we’re featuring Anna Gillis from our Design team. Anna joined us in February of 2022, and her work has been primarily focused on designing our web app to be as user friendly and engaging as possible. She’s a California native, who loves to paint, hike, read, hang out with her dog, and go to concerts. She’s also a member of our Fantasy Football league on the very punny, “Make it Pretty” team.

Frontrunner is a decentralized sports prediction market where users can buy shares of sports propositions and trade them like they would stocks. Unlike traditional sportsbooks where users place a bet and wait, Frontrunner gives users full control over their portfolios, allowing them to dynamically buy and sell positions as the odds change. By leveraging the power of free markets and the blockchain, we create transparent markets and liquid positions to reduce counterparty risk and fundamentally change the way that people invest in their sports knowledge and beliefs.
