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.

Who are you?
We're looking for developers of all levels, people who are passionate about creating great software, with stories of their triumphs and scars from their failures. You'll be a fluent coder with a keen sense of architecture and be able to recognise the patterns that work and those that don't. You'll be continually learning and have an eye on the tech coming over the horizon.

Techniques like TDD, DDD, SOLID, CI and CD will be more than abbreviations on your CV, they are your standard way of working. You can articulate the advantages of platform-as-a-service and data streaming versus the alternatives.

You'll take responsibility for code quality, security and scalability and have an equal grasp of the overall system you are working on and how it meets the needs of the end users.

You'll know what happens when work is checked into Git and have a role to play in the CI automation from running the tests to deploying to production.

Agile & DevOps

We're committed to agile development principles and require people who demonstrate a matching commitment, who understand what a good 'definition of done is', who support all elements of the work of the team from analysis, design, development, test and operations - team commitment is an essential part of our daily lives. You will want to be integral to the self organising team agile requires and have views on scrum vs kanban and other aspect of team organisation.

We are equally invested in our DevOps culture, breaking down functional barriers, working to understand operational concerns and addressing them as early on during our work as we can. You will fearlessly dive in and help your colleagues throughout the full delivery lifecycle.

Frontend engineer or backend engineer?

We're looking for people with an interest in both and if your interests and strengths are more specialised that's great too. We value breadth and specialisation across the team.

We don't build monolithic Enterprise Java apps, think microservices and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment. If that's not your bag look away now.

Your frontend engineering skills mean you have an eye for good UX, can make CSS and HTML come to life via Javascript and develop rich and responsive client applications using your intimate knowledge of javascript frameworks. JQuery is a prerequisite and experience in Angular or, ideally, React. You will also know LESS from Sass and have views on both. You may have skills in UI design to complement your coding knowledge.

Your backend engineering skills cover message queues and event sourcing, you know what goes into building a good RESTful APi. Java is a primary skill but we want people with a variety of experience so knowledge of Node, JavaScript, Scala, Clojure and / or Python also helps. Databases feature heavily and an appreciation of NoSQL and hands-on experience of at least one such DB, its strengths, and weaknesses is important to us. You may also have skills in high volume data processing and streaming. Other tech we use includes Chef, Salt, Git, Jenkins, Graphite, Splunk, Drop Wizard, Play, Akka, Kafka, PostgreSQL, Docker and a range of AWS services … amongst many others.

Bring your experience of other technologies, help us build better software!
