Software Engineer (Gaming)

Who you'll work with

The Gaming tribe are responsible for the Sky Vegas, Sky Bingo, Sky Casino and Sky Poker products . We work hard to plan, design and deliver multiple concurrent initiatives and strive to give our customers the best experience and offer unique features to differentiate ourselves in the marketplace. We see huge volumes of traffic with our customers coming on site to play games, spin prize machine and take part in our amazing promotional campaigns. You’ll work closely with engineers at all levels, testers, business analysts, product owners and delivery leads to ensure we are delivering high quality solutions to business challenges and requirements. 

Your role in 'better'

Reporting into 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 Typescript, React, GraphQL, Docker, Prometheus, AWS, and Terraform. 

  • Actively participate in, and in some cases lead on, application design, data flows and detailed technical design. Ensure that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact. 

  • Passionate about code quality, security and scalability and have an equal grasp of the overall system you are working on and how it meets the needs of the end users, and business objectives. 

  • Balance the commercial needs of the business against the ideal technical design, proposing sound phased or tactical implementations where appropriate. 

  • Understand the importance of non-functionals such as real-time monitoring, good alert design and great logging strategies. Ensuring systems perform well to deliver the best user experience possible is something you consider as part of the normal delivery process. 

  • Support the implementation of continuous integration to enhance deployment processes. 

  • Work with other Engineers, technical and non-technical stakeholders, and system architects to envision, design and deliver industry leading systems, and to set a sustainable forward strategy.
