Job Description

JavaScript Developer

You’ve got a knack for making us look good

As a passionate JavaScript Developer, you’re a real front-end craftsman. You love nothing more than making things look better, and feel smoother. You’re on top of your game. And your healthy obsession with testing and reviewing will keep us on top of ours, at the forefront of a fast-moving gaming industry. In other words: you 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. In addition to crafting seamless experiences across all our digital touchpoints, you’ll get to work on projects which are not only reimagining the architecture of our shops, but the tech to bring it to life too. And by helping 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 ES6, React, Jest and Git. You’ll also be confident in your ability to: write clean, maintainable and high-quality JavaScript to best practice standards; test automated software through unit/functional/integration test suites, such as Jest, Moch or Jasmine; develop interactive features without depending on 3rd party plugins.

Additionally, experience in the following will really set you apart:

  • Agile delivery principles and practices, such as Scrum or Kanban
  • Systems composed of small modules, each with clear responsibilities and API

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.
