At Sky Betting & Gaming we don't have 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.

The Challenge

The data tribe is responsible for centralised warehousing providing reporting/dashboarding, campaign management and big data analytics capabilities alongside data science and real-time streaming/decisioning capabilities. The data tribe is going through massive growth within Sky Bet as the business demands more from data-driven decisioning and technology.

As the new Data Solution Architect you will help drive change within our data platforms by working closely with key stakeholders and teams of in-house engineers to deliver high-quality data solutions via our big data technology stack.

What you will do….

As demand for work comes into your squad from all other tribes around the business, you will engage with the key stakeholders to determine the best possible solution and, working closely with the in-house team of engineers, deliver what's needed to get the job done.

You will use your vast knowledge of data platforms to shape quality high-level designs taking all functional and non-functional aspects into consideration. You will bring all key stakeholders along with you to ensure full understanding and alignment across all areas of the business.

You will be the SME for our key warehousing platform.

The work will be varied, from large company-wide programmes and RFP work for new capabilities through to minor changes to data-models and schedule changes to improve efficiencies or enable new metrics for reporting.

How you will do it…

  • You will have experience of Data-warehousing and BI including ETL, data quality and dimensional data models.
  • You will be an expert in Big Data technologies including Hadoop, CDH, Hive, Impala, Spark. You will have views on the latest technologies including ELK stack and Kudu.
  • You will be opinionated in Business Intelligence tooling and the varying needs of end-users and have been involved in RFP work.
  • You will be comfortable generating high-level designs, solution options papers, and have expertise in data-model design and data pipeline schedule dependencies.
  • You will also have experience of AWS-based technologies and understand the part they can play in data architectures.
  • You will be an expert at capturing and addressing all non-functional as well as functional concerns within the solution.
  • You will have excellent stakeholder management and communication skills and be used to working in an agile environment with teams of high-calibre engineers.

How we work…

  • Reporting into the Principal Architect for Data you will be part of a close team of architects who are responsible for collectively steering the evolution of the platforms (domain architecture), as wells as designing quality solutions (solution architecture) and data (data architecture).
  • You will be able to inform the data strategy and target architecture and be regularly involved in assessing and understanding other architect's solution and decisions to enable learning and growth within the architecture function.
  • You will be surprised and delighted at the autonomy within the team and the ability to deliver quickly in an agile environment. You will need to be able to balance this with alignment and architectural concerns such as security and compliance.

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
