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.

What you'll do:

A key role in our Bet Trading Tribe: leading a multi-disciplinary squad of highly skilled individuals. In collaboration with the Product Owner and the Principal Engineer, you will lead the delivery of high quality products to production, ensuring your squad focuses on the highest priorities.

You are self-motivated and willing to contribute at all levels, listening and learning from the talented people around you. You have an eye on the bigger picture and can plan ahead so there are no last minute surprises. You care about energizing your squad to deliver fantastic services for our customers.

You will line manage up to six Software Engineers in the squad and be responsible for their career development. Our mission is to create the best place our people have ever worked at, and we need you to help us achieve this.

How you'll do it:

Reporting to an Engineering Manager, you will:

  • Line manage and coach the Software Engineers in the squad
  • Encourage squad members to lead initiatives and develop themselves
  • Work with the Principal Engineer to drive best practices and technical improvements in the squad
  • Work with your Product Owner to determine the best way to deliver the roadmap. Be the driving force for the team and own getting ideas to Production
  • You will need to demonstrate good understanding in some of the following: Node, Java, Chef; and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API

How we work:

  • Yes, we do gambling. No, we don't have a high-pressure, competitive environment. Your colleagues want you to succeed as much as you do
  • We encourage squad autonomy. If you don't like the way something is done, do something about it!
  • Friday afternoons are your personal learning and development sessions. Use this time to spend your £1000 Tech Ninja fund, collaborate with your colleagues - we want you to be excited about this!
  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a high level of interpersonal skill is important to us. We need everyone in the squad to understand the goal for the week
  • We are not building a monolithic enterprise app - think micro-services and a lean approach with quick running tests, automation and deployment
  • We promote incremental deliveries: giving value to the business quickly through feature-based delivery, observing and adapting as you go
  • We value previous experience developing for high-demand & high-availability environments

We will consider remote working (with at least 50% of time being in the base office), part-time working and flexible hours to accommodate your personal circumstances, providing we can meet our business needs.

We also offer an attractive relocation package for candidates that live outside the Yorkshire region, including those outside the UK.

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.

Our People Ambition is to attract & develop diverse & talented people to meet the current and future growth needs of SB&G. Together, our aim is to create the Best Digital Business to work at.
