Job Description

Give our customers that fist-pump moment

Retail is the shop window of William Hill. We’re the UK’s largest land-based bookmaker with over 2,300 licensed betting shops in the UK. Our tech delivers real-time odds to customers via 3000 self-service betting terminals spread throughout the UK. We should know – we developed and built them ourselves. We also provide the software to fill our shop video walls with a rich content of sporting data to provide our customers with all information they need to enhance their betting experience.

Your role in the team

Betting can be tricky - there's a lot of data to pay attention to, it updates frequently, and there's always money at stake. As a Javascript Engineer your job is to make it as easy as possible for a customer to navigate the sea of data, find what they want, strike a bet and have fun doing it. This is the point where our entire tech stack meets our customers, and you can help us to shape the future of their betting experiences.  

Skills needed

We’re looking for someone with a thorough understanding of Javascript, either ES5 or ES6 – this is one of the most important factors. We’d also love to see experience developing Single Page Applications, writing maintainable CSS on a large website or application, and developing interactive features. Our other key technologies are React, Jest and Git.

If you're interested in joining us, we want to hear about some of the projects you're proud of, problems you've solved in an interesting way, or even better a link to your GitHub profile so we can see for ourselves - if you were excited about it, chances are we'll be too.

What we offer

We have a great office space in a vibrant part of Leeds City Centre – right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live - a hub for digital and gaming companies with an active tech community. On top of a good salary and package, our benefits include pension, healthcare, bonus opportunities – and a cycle to work scheme (ideal for burning off all the pizza we eat.)

About us

With over 16,000 people worldwide, we make a huge investment in everyone, offering great career development opportunities. Our people are at the heart of everything we do and we offer a fast-paced environment where we have fun, celebrate success and give you all the tools you’ll need to be your best self. It’s not just our colleagues we look after – we’ve got a responsibility to our customers too and we work hard on our ambition that nobody is harmed by gambling.
