Sky Betting & Gaming

We are a Yorkshire-based tech unicorn aiming to be the UK’s best digital business.

Born out of Sky, we are now over 1000 colleagues, developing some of the country’s biggest brands in online betting and gaming; including Sky Bet, Sky Vegas, Soccer Saturday Super 6 and Sky Sports Fantasy Football.

Constantly innovating, we’ve doubled in size over the last 5 years and we’re not going to stop there. Here, you’ll grow. You’ll be challenged. You’ll be well rewarded. Our fast-track progression will meet your ambitions. Our laid-back culture has replaced suits and ties with casual dress, pool tables and arcade tournaments. We’ve created one of the most exciting environments in the business. It’s no wonder we’ve been named one of the UK’s Top 100 companies to work for 2 years running.

We have grown to become one of the UK’s leading online betting and gaming companies. A business driven by cutting edge technology, we bring the excitement of sports betting, casino games, poker and bingo to over 700,000 customers a day, and growing!

It’s a workplace like no other, with a mission to make Betting and Gaming better.

And we want you to be part of it.

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

Training & Profiles

As part of the 3-year Software Academy programme, we will fully support you with the completion of a Masters’ degree.

Your training will be a blend of theory provided by university lecturers and practical training provided by Sky Betting & Gaming Engineers. Following your training, you will join one of our tribes where you will work as part of a squad, working collaboratively to share knowledge and complete tasks.

At Sky Betting & Gaming, we don’t have Teams, we have Tribes. Each Tribe is made up of small, agile and autonomous squads who work collaboratively with a shared purpose.

So whether you join our Bet Tribe, Early Careers Tribe or anything in between, you will work with a group of people with raw energy, natural talent, and the kind of spirit that helps us think big, act bold, and change the game.

At Sky Betting and Gaming we are committed to investing in your development. We have a variety of courses available through our L&D function as well as access to our Tech Ninja fund of 1K, whether it be a conference, some learning materials or a piece of kit which you feel will support you whilst doing your role.
