Senior Software Engineer (Promos)

What you will do???

In the Promos Squad you will be responsible for the presentation of promotional information to customers, including Sky Bet Club, our Promotions Hub, Popular Bets and Event Notifications, working with the latest technologies using React/JS, Kubernetes, Kafka and AWS.

You will help to build industry-leading web and mobile applications, built on virtualised and cloud platforms. You will be working in teams that are evenly balanced with a mixture of specialists across front-end and back-end technologies: it's your attitude and potential to learn and grow we're looking for, not an oracle of any discipline or specific technology. We write a lot of React/JS, Node/JS, Swift, Kotlin and Java; we use Docker and Kubernetes plenty, and we also do quite a bit in Kafka, PHP, Chef, Graphite, Akka, Redis, MySQL, MongoDB and a range of AWS services, depending on whichever product-owning team you're part of. We update our technology stack regularly based on what suits the job the best.

Every engineer is passionate about their team and drives improvements in their discipline and the quality of their team's systems. They share knowledge with others and are constantly learning and adapting their skills to push themselves and their team further: both in the tech that they use, and the way that they approach work, supporting all elements of the work of the team from analysis, design, development, test and operations regardless of title: team commitment is an essential part of our daily lives.

We are not building a monolithic Enterprise app - think micro-services and a lean approach with quick running tests and deployment.

How you will do it???

You will turn concepts and requirements into highly available web applications and systems using industry standard languages and technologies.

You will actively participate in and, in some cases, lead on application design, data flows and technical design, ensuring that analysis includes the wider view of technical and business impact. You will take responsibility for code quality, security and scalability and have a good grasp of the overall system you are working on and how it meets the needs of the end users.

You will also understand the importance of non-functionals such as real-time monitoring, good alert design and great logging strategies. Ensuring that our systems perform well to deliver the best user experience possible is something you consider as part of the normal delivery process.

With your squad, get a deep understanding of your squad's products and services so that you can play an active part in determining the future for them with your squad's product manager.

Continuously learn, grow and improve with your team, for example by critical evaluation of your team's software releases, and finding ways to incrementally make everything you do better and better. Proactively support and mentor other squad members, working with them to help improve their skills.

What we can offer you???

An environment where teams feel like family and everyone works together as one team to achieve your shared vision.

Helping you be a master in your domain is critical to our company's success: that's why we have "10% L&D time" just for you. This means that Friday afternoons are your time to learn whatever you decide you need to stay at the top of your game.

We have close links with the local tech communities and our colleagues will regularly be seen at local events such as LeedsJS & LeedsPHP as well as hosting events at our modern offices in the heart of Leeds city centre.

Our People Ambition is to attract & develop diverse & talented people to meet the current and future growth needs of SB&G. Together, our aim is to create the Best Digital Business to work at .
