About The Role

Our technology teams won’t settle for second place when it comes to keeping millions of customers up with the action. That’s why we give them the best resources to work with. Bring your focused expertise and drive to a business that will give you the freedom to innovate and explore. Join GVC as a DevOps Team Lead in Stratford and grab your opportunity to make things better for millions of sports betting and gaming customers worldwide. For the good of entertainment.

Do you like having passionate discussions about container PaaS, SCA tools, technology architectures, alerting and monitoring services? Have you led a team of expert platform engineers? Do you like to sit down with your team and get some hands-on time finding a solution to a particular automation problem? Are you looking for somewhere less corporate, and more fun to work and build your career? If so, keep reading.


As a DevOps Team Lead in our Technology & Product function, you'll lead an increasing team of super smart, fun and motivated DevOps, SRE and Platform Engineers across London, Lviv and Hyderabad. You’ll be part of the Tech Services team, supporting and working closely with Luis, our Head of DevOps and SRE, and managing the team. Oh, and you’ll probably be asked to cover your laptop with stickers. Full disclosure.


Most days you’ll be in Stratford (we have a cool Tech office with a running track, table tennis, drinks fridge etc… sort of thing you’d expect from the world’s number one sports betting and gaming business). Check it out; https://youtu.be/y2ZkHwBvEQU


The purpose of the role is to make sure we enable the best Tech talent to help keep our apps working, performing and evolving, and to entertain and keep our customers safe. We’re advocates for our developers, testers, platform engineers and we focus solely on driving collaboration, reliability, security and quality best practices.


Our vision in Platform Engineering is to become a beacon of best practices and to always act in an “open-door” attitude. Questions are to be asked, ways of working are to be improved, technologies are to be tested and adopted, but most of all, processes and people are to be mentored and brought along in the journey of “automate as much as possible” across the whole landscape. You’ll be required to know your Technology Architectures, understand industry standard products and technologies that cover: IaaC, SCA, Monitoring, Orchestration, VCS, APM, Logging and other areas.


You’ll be expected to have an opinion on Native services vs Agnostic tools, and above all else, be a mediating voice between technical opinions and delivery needs, balancing speed of delivery without compromising on reliability, security and availability.


This was Luis’s role, but he got a promotion. Career development isn’t a buzz-phrase here.


Tech Stack: Terraform, Ansible, K8s, ECS, ELK, AWS, GCP, Jenkins, on-prem Infra
