FanDuel Group is a world-class team of brands and products that deliver sports betting, gaming and entertainment to millions of US sports fans every day. That’s no easy task, and wouldn't be possible without a fantastic team who have helped us pioneer new products and innovative features that make us a leader in the industry. Whether you’re looking for better career progression, improved financial security or just a better sense of belonging, we believe we’ve created a culture in which everyone can succeed, no matter how you got here.

The Position

Gaming Platforms makes up part of the Casino vertical, which is responsible for back-end services and applications to enable customer facing journeys, and to bridge gaming transactions from the front end with our account and wallet systems. We are primarily a back-end focused team, accountable for developing, deploying, and operating our own systems at scale.

What We’re Looking For

  • Willingness to support our systems as part of the out-of-hours support rota.
  • An eagerness to go beyond – learn new things, challenge existing norms, and generally look outside of the ticket you’re currently working on for bigger picture improvements.
  • Ownership of all areas of development from initial requirements through to deployment, we’re not a team where testing or deployment is thrown to another person to complete, everyone gets stuck into every stage.
  • A can-do attitude and willingness to speak up if you spot areas of potential improvement.
