About us
At SaberSim, we’re a fully-remote team of sports geeks, data scientists, and professional gamblers on a mission to help average Joes beat daily fantasy sports.
We’re built on... 
Backend - Python
Data - MySQL, Postgres, Redis
DevOps & Deployment - Google Cloud Platform, Github

Our tools are easy to use, but there’s a lot of complexity behind the scenes and powering it all is our custom machine learning algorithm.
The algorithm accurately predict the outcome of every game for all major sports by pulling in data from dozens of sources and simulating each game thousands of times, play-by-play.
Through our web-based app, our players can easily use that data to build strong lineups in a matter of minutes.
