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

FanDuel are looking for a Senior Java Software Engineer to join our Account vertical which oversees our most critical platform and services. Our Account Vertical is responsible for Registration, Authentication, User Identity and Verification journeys. Basically, if you've registered, logged-in, and managed your account on our platform, our engineering teams own this and more. There is a huge scope for innovation in this role from technical and feature innovation through to improving our customer experience and we're only just getting started!

Working closely with Product, as a Senior Software Engineer in our Proton team, you'd be working on a range of activities focused around our onboarding customer journey flows.

As a Software Engineer, you will work in empowered, multidisciplinary teams, autonomously tackling complex challenges that provide the very best experiences and products for a growing community of millions of players. We’re looking for passionate technologists, strong communicators, and those with a commitment to continuous improvement. The ideal candidate will have the confidence to propose pragmatic solutions to complex problems and be eager to learn from and educate others.

  • Experience working with AWS cloud based infrastructure and technologies.
  • Experienced working with containerisation tools such as Kubernetes.
  • You use technology to solve straightforward problems, seeking input and guidance from team members.
  • You can take defined design and turn it into code and deliver it on schedule, applying appropriate technologies and current software engineering best practices.
  • You write secure, stable, testable, maintainable code with minimal defects.
  • You participate in team design, scoping, and prioritization discussions.
  • You are a passionate advocate for your customer.

What You Can Expect

  • Interesting work - working in a fast-paced and ever-changing industry, new problems and exciting solutions are never too far away. There are always opportunities to learn new skills and broaden your horizons.
  • A sense of achievement - Our teams own their own software and when that awesome new feature ships to users and the positive feedback starts rolling in, you can feel really proud of what you and your team created.
  • Personal development - clear and defined career pathways for every role at every level, a supportive manager, loads of learning opportunities and even 10% of your time to dedicate to your learning.
  • Belonging - everyone at FanDuel works for each other, we win together, make mistakes together and have lots of fun doing it.
  • Trust - A trusting work environment where productivity is valued above all else, giving you autonomy and ownership of your time and work.
  • Great financial package - Including salary, bonus, pension, private healthcare, share save scheme, flexible working & holiday policy along with a number of other benefits.
