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:

We are expanding our in-house engineering capability in the Group Platform Tribe and we are looking to hire a top quality, enthusiastic engineer from a relevant background to work in our lean squads.

Join one of the most exciting tech teams in the UK as a Software Engineer working with the latest technologies on our next generation in-house platforms, primarily written in Kotlin and leaning heavily on message-oriented microservice design patterns.

No previous experience in sports betting? No problem - we have many experts to learn from, and the technical excellence you'll bring is what we value. Salary and benefits packages reflect the high standard in our tech teams, with excellent training and development opportunities for all engineers

You will be keen to share your skills and experience with more junior members of the squad to help them in their development.

You will be self-motivated and willing to contribute to design at all levels, listening and learning from the talented people around you. We believe we have a strong culture and we want you to be a part of it.

How you'll do it:

Reporting to the Lead Software Engineer, you will:

  • Turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using industry standard languages and technologies such as Kotlin, Java, Spring Boot, Kafka, Kubernetes, Docker, MySQL, RabbitMQ, AWS.
  • Actively participate in application design, database design, data-flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact
  • Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate
  • Share your experience by mentoring more junior squad members
  • Actively support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes in line with SB&G delivery/release evolution plans

How we work:

  • Our engineers work closely with colleagues in all positions, so a good level of interpersonal skill is important to us
  • We are not building a monolithic enterprise app - think microservices and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment. This should be something you're passionate about too
  • You will need to demonstrate good levels of skills in Java, Kotlin, or something comparable, and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API
  • Data features heavily and you should appreciate there are many storage patterns, knowing the strengths and weaknesses when compared to traditional relational databases
  • You will be happy to pick up code in other languages, especially those in the open source web development arena
  • We expect candidates to be comfortable working in a Linux environment
  • Hands-on experience with AWS is a bonus
  • 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 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.
