A leading gambling company are looking for a Tech Lead to join their team due to expansion. You’ll provide expertise and direction to the Horse Racing team, making hands-on technical contributions and end-customer delivery as the technical owner, helping to influence the current and future direction of the brand through the decisions you drive.
How you’ll do it:
Working alongside the Horse Racing team product owner, you will be jointly responsible for providing the direction for the team. You will consider the needs of the business when deciding the technical direction for the team and work together to prioritise accordingly.
You will provide demonstrable significant strength and technical clout in at least some of the core technologies and tools the Horse Racing Team uses, across the stack: React and other JS/HTML/CSS for client-side, Node and PHP for server-side, Kubernetes, AWS, Docker and Jenkins for deployment. You will put these skills into practice both directly and in consultation with the Team’s engineers.
You will work closely and practically with the Engineers of all specialities (Software, Test, Ops) in the team to guide and coach the team to success, using your technical expertise to lay down the best practices and aims for the future.
As part of the company’s technical leadership team, you will influence the technical direction for the brands as a whole and consider this in the decisions you make for your team.
You will provide hands-on skills in analysis, elaboration, implementation, test and deployment.
The Horse Racing team works closely with a variety of people across the business who care about what is best for their customers betting on the 1500+ meetings that take place throughout the year. The Racing calendar helps us work towards the company’s busiest day of the year - the Grand National - and they all understand and work for our customers first and foremost.
As a team, you’ll work collaboratively and respectfully to make decisions. As Tech Lead, it is your responsibility to provide direction to the team, but decisions will be made as the final stage after discussion with the team, not in isolation.
They use Kanban to help us deliver what is needed at the time it is needed. Each item of work is a collective endeavour and it is the team’s job to deliver each ticket. They respond to change positively and they welcome improvement.
Our successes are celebrated together, our challenges are worked through and learned from together.
All technologists in the team have Friday afternoons dedicated to Learning and Development to use as they want towards their self-set career goals. Coupled with the Tech fund of £1,000 a year to spend on learning, they have a growth mentality at our core.
What’s on offer…
This is a chance to join one of the highest-performing teams in the industry. They will challenge you, support you, teach you and are keen for you to teach us.
Our rewards are as unique as our culture, and they want to attract the best people and keep hold of them. So, you can look forward to all of these things and more.
They also offer an attractive relocation package for candidates that live outside the Yorkshire region, including those outside the UK.
