Sky Betting and Gaming

Work our way, and build a career your way.

Description

Here at Sky Betting and Gaming, we’ve all got different daily schedules. Different career needs. Different ambitions. And different plans for the future. But what connects us all is our passion for greenfield tech – and the opportunity to drive it forward in a working environment without boundaries. It’s called working our way. But it’s really about doing things your way, and it offers the flexibility to mix your work with your other commitments (or even to join us with limited experience) and build a tech-focused career that you can take wherever you like.

Here, you’ll work at pace and push new tech to its limits as you help us deliver resilient, scalable, high performing systems. You’ll work with the industry’s best digital minds as you create innovative products and applications. And you’ll develop systems and software that can handle huge challenges - like 11m financial transactions on a Saturday afternoon.We’re passionate about developing our people to be the best they can be. In fact, we have some of the most talented technologists in the country so it’s vital we keep up our game. That’s why our Learning and Development team offers tonnes of opportunities for everyone to learn new and exciting things to develop you in your role - and beyond.

We’re looking for experience in everything from MongoDB, MySQL, and SQL to React, Node, Kotlin, Kubernetes, Java8, Scala, Akka, Clojure, Chef, Grafana and Splunk. We want expertise in high traffic/availability websites and in scaling event driven architecture. And we need people who can get to grips with a range of tools like LAMP stacks, AWS, Fortigate firewalls, F5 loadbalancers, Icinga, Grafana, Graphite, NewRelic, Redis, kafka, RabbitMQ and more.

But equally, we’re looking for people who are taking the first steps in their tech careers. People who can think big, and act bold in a lively, family-feel working environment that’s supportive, respectful, collaborative, and most of all fun. People who can thrive in a culture that nurtures talent, listens to its people, and trusts them to get on with the job.

People who can work our way.
