About us

Working with us, you'll be at the heart of the technological revolution of one of the world's most trusted betting and gaming companies. We deal with projects ranging from mobile Casinos to online Sportsbooks and everything in between. The software you write will process 500 online bets per second, accommodate 20 million users, and process 160 terabytes a day. You can be sure there are many more challenges waiting for you.

Your role in the team

Our team is building the next generation Sports Betting platform that optimizes flexibility, performance, and responsiveness. The project's technologies include Scala (ZIO/Cats/Akka-HTTP/Http4s/Alpakka), Cassandra, Kafka, Kubernetes, AWS, Postgres, and JavaScript (React/Redux).

As a Cloud Engineering Lead, you'll work directly with the business, as part of an agile team, delivering high-quality, customer-focused, technical solutions to exceed the customer's expectations.

Your responsibilities will include
* Driving our expansion into Amazon Web Services (AWS), through effective DevOps principles, clean Terraform code, Docker/Kubernetes orchestration and automation

We need you to be a real self-starter, driven to succeed and confident taking responsibility and ownership. You're highly organised and committed to producing high quality work with a healthy respect for quality and standards.

You have experience of leading, coaching and mentoring others to develop their skills and knowledge and enjoy nothing more than team collaboration and sharing ideas. This is a hands-on role, utilising your engineering skills, and you will need:

We'll welcome you on-board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday), a rewarding bonus scheme, healthcare, an attractive pension package, healthy gym discounts and a staff benefits scheme.

A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies - there's also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we're in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.
