Solutions Architect

What you'll do...

The 4 delivery squads in the Promotions Group are responsible for delivering product-agnostic promotional and on-site notification capabilities to our portfolio of products. You will be providing technical leadership, architectural design rigour and forward roadmap guidance for the ongoing evolution of these capabilities.

The current architecture is an event-based microservices model. Kafka is used as the event state store, with a plethora of JVM-based microservices (Scala or Kotlin) deployed on Rancher and Kubernetes. These services provide the required functionality to handle promotion eligibility, opt-in, qualification, cash and reward fulfilment and communication of progress back to the customer with robust operational controls. We believe in providing fair, clear and exciting promotions to our customers in a responsible way, for example avoiding the use of mechanisms like wagering requirements to artificially inflate marketing offer headlines.

How you'll do it...

We are looking for someone who has experience in the following areas:

  • Streaming data systems (preferably Kafka)
  • Event-based system design / development
  • Designing highly-available, multi-tenant platforms

Additionally, as a senior technology role, applicants are expected to be capable of providing strong technical leadership skills whilst also having robust experience as an architect or senior developer. You will report to the Head of Architecture & Engineering.

How we work...

As a Solution Architect you work as a member of the wider Gaming architecture team, but also embed yourself directly alongside the squads you provide architecture services to.

An SB&G architect is a demanding role where you will be expected to both outline forward strategy and inform decisions with senior stakeholders, and get hands-on working with individual engineers to help resolve technical problems.

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.

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 .
