At Sky Betting & Gaming we don't have team Teams we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose.

So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.

It all means that we've created the kind of workplace that wins awards such as a place on the prestigious list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For.

What do we expect from you?

We are expanding our in-house engineering capability in the Bet-Trading Tribe, and we are looking to hire a top quality, enthusiastic engineer from a relevant background to work in our lean squads

Join one of the most exciting tech teams in Leeds as a Software Engineer working with the latest technologies on the Skybet.com sports trading platform

No previous experience in sports betting? No problem - we have many experts to learn from, and the technical excellence you'll bring is what we value. Salary and benefits packages reflect the high standard in our tech teams, with excellent training and development opportunities for all engineers

You will be self-motivated and willing to contribute to design at all levels, listening and learning from the talented people around you. We believe we have a strong culture and we want you to be a part of it

How you'll do it

Reporting to the Lead Software Engineer, you will:

  • Turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using industry standard languages and technologies such as Node.JS, Mongo, MySQL, Kafka, RabbitMQ, Chef and Docker.
  • Implement highly modular and maintainable components across a horizontally scalable application framework designed to maximise reuse across multiple channels.
  • Actively participate in application design, database design, data-flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact.
  • Deliver software solutions to specification and on-schedule that are fit for purpose.
  • Work with Product Owners to propose, analyse and negotiate business requirements, and translate them into technical requirements.
  • Participate in the definition of scope of projects and estimates of timescales for development and maintenance work.
  • Analyse functional and non-functional requirements to determine impact on technical systems.
  • Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate.
  • Produce accurate and unambiguous functional and technical documentation of products, systems and services prior to and during development.
  • Proactively suggest ways to improve the quality of software releases. Work with the squad to ensure that development follows an agreed delivery model. Ensure that updates are accurate and reflect known risks/issues to enable progress to be properly reported.
  • Actively support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes in line with SB&G delivery/release evolution plans

How we work

  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a good level of interpersonal skill is important to us
  • We are not building a monolithic Enterprise app - think micro-services and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment. This should be something you're passionate about too
  • You will need to demonstrate good levels of skills in Node.JS, and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API
  • Data features heavily and you should appreciate there are many storage patterns, knowing the strengths and weaknesses when compared to traditional relational databases
  • You will be happy to pick up code in other languages, especially those in the open source web development arena; React for example
  • We expect candidates to be comfortable working in a Linux environment
  • We value previous experience developing for high-demand & high-availability environments

Based in Yorkshire, we have grown to become one of the UK's leading online betting and gaming companies. A business driven by bleeding edge technology, that brings the excitement of sports betting, casino games, poker and bingo to over 200,000 customers a day & growing!

It's a workplace like no other, with a mission to make Betting & Gaming better.

And we want you to be part of it.
