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.
Sky Betting and Gaming aims to bring the excitement of sports betting, Casino, Poker and Bingo to a rapidly growing number of customers in the betting and gaming market. Through our close relationships with Sky Sports we can provide a unique opportunity to deliver a real experience that makes us stand out in the online gaming sector. We're striving to be the best digital business in the UK and we're well on our way, this year we've been nominated as one of The Sunday Times Top 100 companies to work for as well as bagging a handful of accolades at the 2016 EGR awards and we're not planning on slowing down anytime soon! From our base in Leeds and across all our sites, we are experiencing rapid growth and are constantly looking for the best talent to help us in our continued success. Are you in?
Who are you?
*As a Delivery Manager in the Data Tribe at Sky Betting and Gaming you will be responsible for managing the end to end delivery into service of software products and initiatives, throughout the lifecycle from "Idea" to "Validation of the outcome".
*You will have significant experience in a similar role within a large, fast moving online business and will be an expert in Lean and Agile software product delivery. Specifically, you will have a proven track record of delivering better customer experiences, whilst delivering major product enhancements and supporting significant growth in customer and transaction volumes. You will also have a reputation of delivering complex technology initiatives in a fast paced results driven Agile environment and have developed tools and techniques for working with autonomous Agile teams and bringing them together to deliver large business and technology initiatives.
*You will be passionate about Lean and be an experienced practitioner of the core principles of Lean Startup such as MVP, quick feedback loops, adaptive planning, eliminating waste, reducing WIP, fixing bottlenecks, delivering fast, continuous improvement and short planning cycles. You'll be equally adept at managing delivery via third parties using agile and more traditional methods.
*You will be responsible for the end to end delivery of key business initiatives, working with an array of business areas such as technology, marketing, operations and many more
*You will manage multiple dependencies and roadmaps across squads and tribes, ensuring these are planned and aligned to successfully deliver on time
*You will be responsible for work planning, delivery schedules, budget management, risk management and business reporting
*You may be faced with blockers either internally or with external 3rd parties. To resolve these, you will need to build genuine relationships across the organisation and remove these at speed
*In a fast moving business like SB&G, there are many competing priorities. Your challenge will be to ensure the teams are working on the correct priorities and know when to pivot or apply tolerances at the point prioritisation decisions have to be made.
*Many of the initiatives you will be responsible for will be technically challenging and require the collaboration of multiple teams and disciplines. Your goal will be to keep these teams energised and aligned. Ensuring the projects are delivered on-time, without compromising on quality or customer value.
*It will be your role to drive the pace of delivery across a number of squads, whilst respecting and fostering their Agile cultures and ways of working. To do this, you will have to adapt a number of approaches and not take a one size fits all tactic.
*You will need to take an holistic view of in-flight initiatives, assessing whether squads are delivering enough customer value. But are equally focusing on risks reduction, revenue protection, stability and technical advancement.
*On a daily basis you will be managing and reporting to multiple stakeholders. It's important to ensure they are all aligned and expectations are well managed.
What can we offer you:
*A culture where you are free to experiment - if you make a convincing pitch - no-one is going to say "no"
*A team that will support you even when things don't work - it's ok to fail as long as we learn
*Flexible working with a competitive salary and a bonus scheme where we share in the company's success as a team
As a valued employee you will benefit from Free Sky+HD premium package, an excellent Pension Scheme and Private Health Care together with a range of other benefits to help you make valuable tax and national insurance savings.
