Bet365 about us
We are only as good as the people that we employ so we are constantly ensuring that we provide an environment where our employees can thrive and enjoy their working life. We operate 24/7 and as we are constantly evolving, our working life can be different each day.
What do our staff enjoy most about working for us?
We spend a lot of time interacting with other teams inside and outside of development, gathering progress updates. In order to provide a target live date for a project we would need to create a plan. We will then manage the project until the point where it is ready to release to live. A release plan will be created between the Project Manager and all teams who have something to release to live.
The three things I love most about my role are that no day is ever the same, you are always learning something new about the technology we use, and the satisfaction of completing a project and seeing the changes reflected on the website.
My advice for anyone thinking of applying for a role with bet365 would be…go for it! You won’t find a better place to work alongside some of the most talented people in the business. There are lots of opportunities for good career progression, with a great rewards scheme.
I feel like bet365 has helped to develop me massively, not only in a career perspective but also on a personal level. It’s innovative, exciting, fast paced and rewarding – come and join us!
I’m a Software Developer in the Gaming team, which oversees five different sites – Bingo, Casino, Games, Poker and Vegas. My job role is predominantly writing code on a day to day basis as well as reviewing the code which other developers have written.
Every day we deal with live issues, I come in and the first thing I do is check the server reports, in case we have a major issue from overnight. My technical skills have improved massively and that has given me some great opportunities.
After two years here, we opened offices in Bulgaria, so I had the opportunity to move over there to train the new staff. I lived over there for nine months. That was a point when I really realised, clearly I’m a valued member of staff.
As a person, before joining bet365, I was a little bit shy. In such a big environment, dealing with lots of people on a daily basis, I’ve had to make decisions with colleagues that I’ve never met before, I’ve gone to their desk and said “look, we have this issue, we need to fix this”. It’s definitely helped improve my communication skills.
I used to work for a small travel agency in Greece. In my spare time, I was working on betting projects, making odds for football games and working on trading models, so joining bet365 was something I was very excited about. It’s a big Company – available 24 hours a day, seven days a week – and is growing exponentially. I had to deal with five people on a daily basis back in Greece – now it could be 50 people. You know you are going to face lots of challenges and your code needs to be scalable, in order to be able to support the Company’s vision.
