Job Description

JavaScript Developer

You’ve got a knack of making us look good

As a JavaScript Developer, you’ll have crafted an array of front-end skills that will enhance the look and feel of our customers’ digital experience. And your healthy obsession with reviewing technology will keep us on top of our game, at the forefront of a fast-moving gaming industry. Or put another way: you’ll know what it takes to make us look good… and stay looking good.

Your role in the team

Working on the very latest tech, you’ll be a key part of our agile Retail Technology Team, focused on developing and delivering excellence across all our digital touch-points. Whether a customer’s navigating, placing or playing, it’ll be up to you to make sure their experience is smooth and fun, each and every time.  What’s more, you’ll be actively encouraged to put your ideas forward, and with no barriers in place, there’s no limit on how far you can progress with us.

Working on the very latest tech, you’ll be a key part of our agile Retail Technology Team. Whether a customer’s navigating, placing or playing, it’ll be up to you to make sure their experience is smooth and fun, each and every time. And by getting to develop our in-store IT gadgets, like our fixed odds and self-service betting terminals, you also get to say, “I did that”, as you stroll (slowly) past our windows. Your ideas will also be welcome and we’ll give you everything you need to develop and progress your career – without limits.

Skills needed

You’ll be a ‘real’ team player with an expert understanding of JavaScript (ES5 or ES6). Additionally, experience in the following will help set you apart:

  • Developing single page applications
  • Writing maintainable CSS on a large website or application
  • Developing interactive features
  • React, Jest and Git technologies

What we offer

In addition to the benefits you expect, like healthcare and company pension, we’ll welcome you on board with 25 days holiday (not to mention 8 bank holidays and an extra day for your birthday) and proper flexible working, where HR leave it up to us to agree on what works. You’ll also have access to your own Tech Ninja Fund to aid your development, a rewarding bonus scheme, healthy gym discounts and a flexible benefits scheme.

Plus, our season ticket loan and handy Metro Card loan will save you money getting to work and getting around town. And if you see the journey to work as part of your fitness regime, you’ll just love our Cycle to Work scheme.

William Hill in Leeds

Right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK sit both of our Leeds offices. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies – there’s also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingly.

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.
