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 team are you joining...

Welcome to the future. A new team is being built (we're working on the name!), designed to transform our internal efficiency through the use of technology. Our customers are our colleagues, our job is to make their lives better by thinking about, building and maintaining innovative solutions to replace manual processes with automation, make it easier to do the job and make sure we're accurate and effective in everything we do. Joined by a team of product owners and BA's, you'll be right in the heart of innovation central.

What will you be doing...

We've got a startup mentality, we're here to do things, not talk about them so you'll need to strike just the right balance of building the right thing, building it right and building it fast - an exciting challenge! It will be your job to work with the product team to think of creative solutions to the problems our colleagues face every day (as well as spotting opportunities to change the game!). Our immediate focus is to make sure we get better at what we do now but we'll also constantly be looking for opportunities game changing transformations!

You'll have a pretty open book in choice of technologies and solutions - as long as it gets the job done and its' done in the right way, we want you to express yourself through your code!

How you'll do it...

  • Deploy a mix of different technologies and approaches to solve operational and internal problems for our customers (in this case our colleagues!)
  • Work with product owners and BA's to not just build, but generate ideas and approaches to transform how we work
  • Work in a 'super agile' mentality - a start-up culture where we're more concerned with doing than talking and relish the opportunity to report on and celebrate successes
  • Be commercially minded and able to spot bigger opportunities (can we kill 10 problems with 1 stone!?)
  • By having fun! It's important to us that you express yourself through your code - if you like thinking and doing things differently - this is the team for you

What do you need to be successful in this role...

  • The right attitude - be willing to smash through blockers, think lean and live and breathe agile and be able to instil and reinforce that mentality in the team
  • Have a "get stuff done" approach and to make sure that permeates through the team
  • Be able to act as an agile evangelist in the wider internal teams (for example, the operations team, fraud and risk team) and influence ways of working in the wider SBG community
  • Technical skills might include things like Selenium, PHP, Python, NodeJS - we're fairly open as long as what you use can do the job in the right way
  • Any experience in automating manual processes (e.g. test automation) would be interesting but not a requirement

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.
