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 will do...

As an Agile Delivery Lead you will be working within the Enterprise Services tribe within Sky Betting and Gaming. The tribe supports the technical delivery of the customer operations platform and all employee centric services within the company.

As an Agile Delivery Lead, you will;

  • Take responsibility for the planning of key initiative and sprints, managing external dependencies, day to day management of 3rd parties, issues and risks
  • Ensure the right squad ceremonies are in place. (sprint planning, backlog grooming, standups, retrospectives)
  • Manage cross-team communication and coordination to ensure that dependencies are understood and well managed in order to deliver the end product successfully
  • Prevent, identify and proactively remove blockers to enable progress of the Squad
  • Support planning delivery timelines with the engineering manager based on feedback and estimation from squad and identifying any potential disruptions before they become a problem
  • Provide over arching delivery plans where required
  • Work with the business to provide communication plans
  • Work alongside the relative internal support functions to manage and coordinate 3rd party negotiations for both new and existing contracts
  • Evolve agile and lean techniques - developing the squad's Kanban, and lean ways of working to optimise delivery
  • Facilitate the inception and delivery of new initiatives outside of your usual team domain
  • Report to multiple stakeholders. It's important to ensure they are all aligned and expectations are well managed
  • Have lean process awareness and a continuous improvement mentality

How you will do it …

Reporting into the Head of Architecture and Delivery

  • You will have a good understanding of Agile principals, including Scrum and Kanban methodologies, along with a willingness to evolve these principles
  • You will focus on cross squad and department communication, which is critical to delivery success - you will be at the forefront of making this happen
  • Your exceptional leadership skills will ensure that you are seen as a role model and able to influence teams with your knowledge and experience of delivery and Agile ways of working
  • You will be approachable, open minded and have an ability to work well with people at all levels of the business
  • You will be outcome focused with the ability to determine what adds value and what does not
  • You will demonstrate initiative, inquisitiveness and never be satisfied with the status-quo - always challenging the team and supporting them to be more efficient and advance their skills.
  • You will use clear, concise and influential communication, using insightful reports and raising issues to stakeholders and keeping them up to date on a regular basis
  • You will be confident and credible when working with the leadership team
  • You are passionate about communication, group dynamics and coaching and you are not afraid to raise issues and drive change to remove impediments from your team. You'll be working with a very talented team who love what they do - and we expect no less from you
  • You will have an insatiable appetite for learning new things and improving existing ones. If you're the right one for us, you pay attention to details and take great pride in your work

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 700,000 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.
