It's a great time to join our ambitious team and get involved with a business that is focused, fast paced and a really great place to work.

You'll be encouraged to share your ideas, try new things (and not worry if they don't go right the first time!) and take ownership of your own development. We have a training fund for you to spend each year, as well as the opportunity to earn up to 25% in performance related bonus. We also have; a beer fridge, pizza Friday's, sport always on in the office and regular social events!

Job Title: Senior Software Developer

Location: Remote/Hammersmith

What you’ll do as a Senior Software Engineer…  

 

The Oddschecker US Squad is aiming to build a truly unique experience for our US customers that embraces their passion for sports by offering them data and content they can trust. Our talented Technology and Product teams are at the heart of our US plans and are focused on solving the difficult challenges the US market brings such as personalisation and geo-targeting. We are looking for talented individuals who want to join us on this journey and build solutions that are truly game changing.

 

If you are ready to be challenged, you will collaborate across multiple teams in a highly agile environment to solve complex technical problems. We are a cloud first company, and you will help lead the development of our strategic US odds comparison platform utilising the latest technologies, including ones proposed by yourself.

  • Providing technical expertise and leadership, owning the back-end software delivery for Oddschecker US
  • Building maintainable, testable, resilient software systems including monitoring and operational impact throughout the process 
  • Working with the latest cloud technologies with large data sets and challenging requirements 
  • Working alongside a multidisciplinary squad to design and improve the system 
  • Working as part of a team – mentoring developers and ensuring coding standards are met

 

 

We need someone who… 

 

  • Has experience leading technical teams, bringing new ideas to the table and executing.
  • Is a team player and a self-starter who ideally (but not essentially) has a keen interest in sports and the betting industry. 

 

Our tech stack includes Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, Java 8, GO, NodeJs, ElasticSearch and so much more.

 

You should have knowledge of the following: 

 

Essential: 

  • Minimum of 5 years’ experience of server-side development in a commercial environment (Java, Go, or Python)
  • Experience of working in a fast paced, team environment  
  • Strong communication skills, ambition and an enthusiasm for learning new languages and technology 
  • Rigorous approach to automated software testing 

 

Desired: 

  • Ambition and/or experience in technical leadership 
  • Working with high volume, low latency systems 
  • Experience with NoSQL and RDBMS data platforms (e.g.M ySql, Big Table, Big Query, Elasticsearch, Redis) 
  • Working with distributed systems (RabbitMQ/Kafka/PubSub) 
  • Working with a mixture of RESTful and push APIs (JSON and XML) 
  • Experience with Google Cloud Platform 
  • Experience of Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery

Alongside being challenged daily and a real interest in your development, you will also receive:

  • Competitive bonus scheme
  • Free Sky HD package, broadband and discounted sky talk
  • Free puregym membership
  • Free healthcare with Bupa, life assurance and income protection
