Job Description

Java Developer

We’re really curious to know… what about you?

Where would we be without our curiosity to know? Well we wouldn’t be on top of our game, at the forefront of a fast-moving gaming industry, that’s for sure. It’s our curiosity to know that’s behind our healthy obsession with reviewing technology. Well, how else will we know what’s next? Or, more importantly, how else will we continue to discover, develop and deliver top-quality gaming experiences for our customer across the country?

Your role in the team

Working with the latest tech, including Kafka and Amazon Web Services, you’ll be a key part of our agile Retail Technology Team. In addition to reviewing technology to help us keep pace with the fast-moving gaming industry, 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 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

We’re looking for a ‘real’ team player with professional development experience with Java (7, 8), SQL, Spring Framework, Rabbit MQ

Additionally, exposure to any of the following will help set you apart:

  • Micro-services architecture, AWS, Spring Boot, Kafka, SQL/no SQL, Docker

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.
