About The Role

Are you looking for somewhere less corporate, and more fun to work and build your career? If so, you might just have hit the jackpot.

Tech Stack: Java 8+ / AWS/ KAFKA / ELK/ NOSQL / Springboot and microservices architecture.

We’re looking for an experienced Senior Engineering Manager, who will be contributing to the delivery of the biggest IT transformation in the company with hands-on and exciting technology stack.

Most days you’ll be in East London (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 here.

You’ll play a big part in helping to keep our apps working, performing and evolving, and to entertain and keep our customers safe. You’ll work closely with the DevOps team who are advocates for our developers, testers, platform engineers and focus solely on driving collaboration, reliability, security and quality best practices.

Our vision in Software 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.

The Project:

You’ll be key in our Betstation project. BetStation is now an established part of our in-shop proposition, offering customers the opportunity to bet on a wide range of different markets on a wide range of different sports, with fantastic features that are exclusive to the terminals. With our own in-house product, it also gives us the opportunity to develop exclusive features and content that sets us apart from our competitors.
