Scale up your ambition

Create a buzz. Disrupt the norm. And take an industry by storm.

We design and engineer sports betting websites, mobile apps and retail systems for millions of customers across the globe. And we do it using state-of-the-art technologies, languages and frameworks. The way we work? It’s agile. It’s creative. And it’s bespoke.

The sheer scale of what we do is staggering. Like Google and eBay, we’re members of the API Billionaires Club. We process 135 million transactions every day, and monitor 100,000 data points a second.

We’re always questioning, always inventing, always developing – both ourselves and our technology. After all, why buy your tech off the shelf, when you can create a better version yourself?

Our teams

Networks and infrastructure

As part of a global, 24/7 business, any time our systems go down our customers notice immediately. We have to react to problems, fast. Which is why we’ve deployed a new private cloud platform for our customer-facing systems. And why we have an in-house team of Infrastructure professionals to back it up.

We supply everything from the datacentre cabling to the core infrastructure. Understanding all the component parts not only makes us fast and flexible, but it helps us control and create elegant solutions on a daily basis.

Products, Projects and Programmes

We have a proud history of creating new products that keep us at the front of the pack. Making these new ideas happen takes passion, an encyclopedic knowledge of our systems and a sharp mind.

With us, you’ll create bold new products. You’ll also have the chance to explore in all sorts of directions, as you work closely with teams across our business to define and deliver the new.

Development

We don’t believe in off-the-shelf. We prefer bespoke. We love data and insights, we write code in Java, JavaScript, Scala and .Net and we’re at the cutting edge when it comes to delivery. Agile practices like Scrum, DevOps and Kanban are the norm here.

As you’d expect, we provide software and websites for both mobile (iOS and Android) and desktop (all major browsers). What’s more, our offerings are supported by the same software development practices deployed in private clouds that run on the latest virtualization tools from VMware.

We’re constantly asking: “How can we make our products faster, more reliable and more attractive for our customers?” If you have a killer idea here, we’ll help you bring it to life.

Design

With a large design team spread across multiple locations, we create all of the apps and websites for our brands in-house. We have UX & UI Designers who work closely together – and with Developers and other stakeholders too – to help create the best experiences possible for our customers.

We’re constantly asking: ‘How can we make our products easier to use and more attractive to our customers?’ We also never stop testing, evaluating and improving our existing products to stay ahead of the competition.

Security

The transactions our customers make across the world can be measured in the billions of Euros. We’re the team that helps defend our business and our customers from cyber crime.

By detecting – and then acting on – possible security risks as early as possible, we protect the business 24/7. Enhancing everything from infrastructure and applications to our data security systems, we help make the most advanced technology even more impregnable.

Strategy and Leadership

Delivering strategy for a company that keeps on rewriting the rulebook is a challenge. From real-time trading platforms to innovative e-commerce solutions, we create the bespoke technology that drives our industry.

Our Strategy and Leadership teams work across Paddy Power Betfair to provide strategic thinking around the future of technologies within our business. Assessing how we’re going to build new products and technology services, how they’ll fit into our overall architecture and what our roadmap for the future looks like is intense and rewarding all at once.
