You will need to demonstrate good levels of skill in some of the following: React, PHP, Node, Chef; and be comfortable with techniques such as message queues, data stores and know what makes a good RESTful API, as examples. Data features heavily and you should appreciate there are many storage patterns, knowing the strengths and weaknesses when compared to traditional relational databases.

Our '10% time' policy means Friday afternoons are your time to remain at the top of your game.

Based in Yorkshire, we have grown to become one of the UK's leading online betting and gaming companies. A business driven by bleeding edge technology, that brings the excitement of sports betting, casino games, poker and bingo to over 200,000 customers a day & growing!
