Working with us:

“We have fun! We love to think of the future, we’re not just about delivering what’s in front of our faces, we need people who think ahead, beyond what competitors are doing, who obsess about going back to first principles to design new solutions to old problems (and new ones). People are always out going for coffee, lunch, socials after work – yes we talk about work quite a lot but that’s just because we enjoy what we do.

Obsess about the customer. Sports betting has a lot of ‘legacy thinking’ – we’re looking to smash down these old walls and build new ones, we’re fresh thinkers, the sort of people who don’t mind disagreeing with the leadership team because we know, based on customer research, that we’re right.

Think global. We’re building a global platform, not territory specific, we love to find the nuance between what works in a specific country and what will work everywhere. We think about all of our brands, Sky Bet, Betstars, Fox Bet. We’re global and you should be too!” Nick Cockerill – Head of Product

What’s in it for you?

Our experience-based salaries are competitive. Plus, there’s a discretionary annual performance bonus. And we provide advice and dedicated assistance to those moving to Leeds.

Your package will include:

  • discounted gym membership
