Sky Betting and Gaming

We're looking for a Software Engineer to join the Bet Rep squad.

We are the beating heart of skybet.com powering services such as bet placement, cash out, and publishing real-time event updates simultaneously to thousands of customers

We build the platform which supports consumption and delivery of event data to feed almost every other team in the Bet tribe.

We build services, written in Node.JS, Typescript, Java and Kotlin (JVM), using technologies such as Kubernetes, Docker, Kafka, MySQL, Mongo, Redis, AWS, etc.

How you'll do it

  • Work as part of an Agile Software Delivery squad, contributing to your team’s ways of working and fully embracing a teamwork mentality through practices such as pair programming and a no-blame culture.

  • Get to know our systems, users, and domain, which will help you understand requirements and build the right thing.

  • Involved with all steps of the product lifecycle, from coming up with an initial strategy to tackle a piece of work, through to incrementally coding, testing, and releasing it using Agile development patterns, as well as supporting it after it launches with further improvements.

  • Help turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems, using industry standard languages and technologies.

  • A passion for quality is essential! We're looking for someone to show a determination to make things as good as they can be, with attention to detail and a willingness to suggest and implement further improvements to our processes and ways of working.

  • We own and support our own services, so some of your focus will be on stability, maintainability, performance, and making services easy to monitor.

  • Bring your own experience, ideas and perspectives, and share them with the team to make us even more effective!

  • Continuously learn, grow and improve with your team, for example by critical evaluation of the team’s software releases, and finding ways to incrementally make everything you do better each time.
