Gamesys Group is one of the world’s leading gaming operators, with millions of players and 1500+ employees. We believe passionately in what we do. Quite simply, we craft entertainment with care, building trusted brands and creating great experiences that always put the player first.

Our award-winning ventures – including Virgin, Jackpotjoy, Monopoly, Heart and Vera&John – are some of the best known in the industry. Join us and you’ll be joining a big, international group with some great brands and an exciting future. You’ll feel part of one global family, working with smart people, and delivering a great experience for our players. There’s one thing we expect from you, over and above everything else. Be yourself. One of the values in our DNA is ‘stay wonderfully weird’ – and that applies to all of us.

What we do

Our team works in a relatively new area of the business, building a platform aiming to allow the business to integrate more easily with external third-party operators and game providers to give players the best selection of games and the most enjoyable experience possible!

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for someone who can bring their passion for code quality to the development team. You will collaborate daily with the development team within a primarily front-end agile team to deliver new features and improvements, helping to achieve a high-quality product that offers one of the best player experiences in the market. The team is currently using JavaScript-based front-end tech.

Whilst being proficient in front end technologies is essential, this is not a purely coding role. A developer in our team is responsible for software development in the context of continuous delivery. Focusing on helping the team to improve their KPI’s like lead time, release failure rates, deployment frequency, number of bugs, system availability, code quality, etc. The developer will also play a crucial role in getting requirements right from the start and working with the development team to deliver the right solution.

Responsibilities

  • Deliver high quality, well tested software that meets the agreed requirements.
  • The ability to work to in-house standards, guidelines and processes.
  • Work under pressure and close deadlines.
  • Propose and implement improvements to our software development and delivery processes via our sprints and Agile ceremonies.

Requirements

  • JavaScript Developer
  • HTML5, CSS3
  • Jira/Confluence
  • Git (GitHub)
  • Experience producing cross-browser compatible code

Desirable

  • A passion for automation (from automating the day-to-day, to CI, CD, testing, and beyond)
  • Experience with and knowledge of design patterns
  • Agile (Scrum/Kanban)
  • Any full-stack experience
  • Experience with TDD/BDD

Benefits:

We believe this process works both ways, so what can we do for you?

We offer some of the most competitive benefits in the market including continued personal growth, career development plans and performance bonus. We also believe in providing an environment where employees can flourish – you’ll be working in a very modern work environment – and we will make sure you will also have enough time to unwind with our monthly office events and team-building activities.

This is Gamesys Group and we’re here to make gaming everything it should be. You’ll have fun making fun every day, and that’s a promise.
