By Simon Wright, Last updated Jul 1, 2023

Leading player platform technologist and visionary strategist, Jesse Cary, has joined Strive Gaming as Chief Technology Officer, enhancing and future-proofing Strive Gaming’s ability to serve the US and Canadian markets.

Cary spent a couple years shy of a decade at Bede Gaming, an iGaming platform, spearheading its technical direction and holding several roles including Head of Technical Architecture prior to it completing a major stake sale to the Gauselmann Group.

Most recently, he held roles as Vice President Strategy at High 5 Games and Interim CTO for Avantage Entertainment based out of Florida. His familiarity and experience with regulatory challenges in North America are unrivalled having led the delivery of Player Platform to the Ontario Lottery.

Cary also oversaw one of the largest migrations in the industry while he was Technical Director of Bede, where he played a key role in migrating The Rank Group to their platform.

Cary, born and raised in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, spent considerable time based in Philadelphia working for the major media conglomerate Comcast before relocating to the United Kingdom. His understanding of the technical requirements and desires of players in the US are among the very best in the industry.

On joining Strive Gaming as CTO, Jesse Cary said: “I evaluated the iGaming platform competitive landscape in North America, and I quickly identified that what Strive has in terms of tech stack and expertise is market leading, so I’m delighted to join.”
“I’m excited to contribute from a technical strategy perspective to ensure we can deliver upon our customer pledge of performance at scale in such a challenging and dynamic market, which happens to be my home country. I can’t wait to get started.”

Damian Xuereb, President and CCO of Strive Gaming, said: “Jesse’s wealth of experience with iGaming platform architecture, deployment and development coupled with his understanding of the North American market requirements and culture is second-to-none. This makes him the ideal fit to drive forward Strive’s technical ambitions.”

“We have some of the most advanced player platform technology in North America and we strive to be at the cutting edge technically for years to come.”
