We’re defining what it means to build and deliver the most extraordinary sports and entertainment experiences. Our global team is trailblazing new markets, developing cutting-edge products, and shaping the future of responsible gaming.

Here, “impossible” isn’t part of our vocabulary. You’ll face some of the toughest but most rewarding challenges of your career. They’re worth it. Channeling your inner grit will accelerate your growth, help us win as a team, and create unforgettable moments for our customers.

The Crown Is Yours

Our engineering division is composed of many tight-knit and stable teams that each own a specific area of our platform all the way from the UI to the database. You will be assigned directly to one of these teams and will work alongside senior engineers responsible for bringing you up to speed. We will value your ability to work closely with a group of your peers to achieve meaningful results and can offer an excellent platform for starting your career in engineering.

What you’ll do as a Software Engineer

  • You will be developing systems and APIs that power a rich set of applications used by a large and passionate group of users every day.

  • Care about agility as much as you care about scalability. We roll out products very quickly and are looking for a team that can pivot at a moment’s notice.

  • Triage and debug software application issues.

  • Work with modern technologies on scalable, reliable systems that people use in a 24/7 sports betting market.

  • Contribute to production code immediately.

What you’ll bring

  • Bachelor's degree in Information Technology, Computer Science, or a related field and/or experience across multiple courses where writing software is a primary element.

  • Hands-on experience with Git in a shared repository.

  • Comfort in picking up new languages and technologies quickly.

  • Ideally, you have 1- 3 years of development experience in object-oriented programming, preferably using C#.

  • Experience with distributed systems and microservices, Kafka, MongoDB, CI/CD, and Kubernetes will be a plus.

  • Collaborative, team-based implementation, either in an internship or project setting.

  • Experience writing unit tests.

  • Fluent in English.
