Our vision is to become the world’s best betting experience. We’re on a mission to disrupt the betting market. And you could be part of it.
But we weren’t always industry leaders. Like many great startups, our story began with three founders launching a business from a humble back bedroom in 1999. Since then, we’ve been acquired by Sky (in 2007), by CVC (in 2015) and most recently, by The Stars Group (in 2018). Our latest ownership creates an exciting new chapter for us, as we meet the challenge of being part of the worlds’ largest listed gaming business.
We’ve come a long way, in every sense of the word. We moved into our oddschecker office in Hammersmith in 2015 as 47-strong team, and there’s now over 100 of us split into a number of squads aligned to our core business areas. This means our teams work end-to-end, taking ownership of products and directly influencing their success, and delivering client brand awareness and acquisition for bookmakers. All powered by the latest cutting-edge technology.
The bottom line is that the UK online gambling industry is one of the fastest-growing and technologically innovative sectors.
And here at oddschecker, we’re no different.
oddschecker - A core part of the sports betting industry since 1999, the oddschecker website is available on desktop and mobile, and is the place to be for up-to-date odds, tips and trends, and best value bets for our customers. In 2015, we expanded our reach to Italy, Spain, Germany and Australia. After spending time researching betting culture in those territories, we launched with local teams who have a wealth of knowledge in the industry and who are currently growing our presence.
Our Apps – When it comes to client brand awareness and acquisition for bookmakers, our iOS and Android app has been a transformational product that has changed the way our customers bet with us.
OC Connect - Our B2B product for publishers and bookmaker partners leverages our place in the industry to provide valuable insight and give our customers better ways to bet.
Our culture is unique, thanks to a team that’s made up of loads of nationalities and heaps of different skillsets and talents. Behind our doors you’ll find marathon runners, weightlifters, gaming pros, amazing foodies and much more!
What brings us together is a shared ambition. An incredible desire to try new things without worrying if they don't go right the first time. And a huge appetite for taking ownership of our own development.
We constantly strive to be a high quality and progressive organisation and our people are central to that success. We want to achieve our vision, but we understand that will only be possible if we have highly talented people throughout our organisation, who are trusted and empowered to impact our business.
However, talented people always have a choice, so our commitment is to create a stimulating environment that enables, encourages and rewards you to push yourself, seize opportunity and maximise your potential. In other words, we want you to choose us.
The kind of qualities and behaviours we value the most are:
- The drive to make things happen
- A highly collaborative outlook, with the ability to seek feedback and share ideas
- A huge appetite for development
But you won’t find these qualities and behaviours printed on the walls, or in your notebooks. They’re just there… we live and breathe them and we always hold each other to account.
And that’s just what our culture is built on: mutual success. In other words, as our business grows, so will you and your career.
Everyone here at oddschecker has the trust, encouragement and support to make their mark on a hugely exciting, successful and, most of all, fun business.
On top of that, we also offer:
- Competitive bonus
- Free Sky HD package, Broadband and discounted Sky Talk
- Subsidised PureGym membership
- Free healthcare with Bupa, life insurance and income protection
- Pension scheme with up to 9% contribution from the company
- £1,000 training fund each financial year, to spend on your professional development
- 25 days holiday which increases by 1 day for each year of service (up to 30 days)
Our head office is in the Aircraft Factory in Hammersmith – a building with loads of history and everything you need to build an exciting future with us. We’re open plan, with lots of breakout spaces and room for company stand-ups to help our teams work the best way they can, together.
Toby Bentall, Group MD – Oddschecker Global Media
“We encourage our people to be guided by one question "what would you do if this was your business, or your money?". We believe in giving people responsibility, whether that’s to take on large projects or start a new business; this includes providing them freedom to make the big decisions, take ownership and shape how their ideas come to life.”
