Job description

We’re broadening our horizons – are you?


It’s an exciting time to be involved with Technology at William Hill. We’re a global betting and gaming company, growing into new markets all the time. We wouldn’t be able to do this without a talented technology team – and that’s where you come in. There’s a lot going on #behindthebet. 


About us


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.


Your role in the team


Working as part of the William Hill US Product Development team and driving our exciting US business and technology expansion with potential future opportunities in the US you’ll be a key member of the software development team. Creating a great customer experience through the latest web technologies to deliver exciting sports betting features, you’ll write high quality, clean code that meets the customers needs.


As part of a delivery focused software product development team that promotes functional programming and its benefits, you’ll push the boundaries of how we approach software development by moving our software development structure to be vertically aligned and feature driven. Here you’ll work in the exciting and dynamic growth business of US Sports Betting with a focus on Retail technology (Kiosks, EPOS and Omni-channel features).


As a Front End Developer, you’ll also contribute to and improve the software development life cycle (SDLC), collaborate with QA and own the CI/CD improvements with the Devops engineers. You’ll help establish and promote an “internal open-source” development model to enable William Hill’s development teams to grow and thrive in a more feature driven way.


Here, you’ll have the opportunity to develop and become more than purely a frontend developer with the aim of operating in the full stack.


Skills Needed


You’ll have a strong background in software development, with extensive experience writing clean, maintainable and high-quality JavaScript. You’ll be comfortable with HTML5, CSS3 and being hands on with anything web tech to get the job done with experience in automated software testing through unit/functional/integration test suites. Additionally, you’ll be comfortable developing rich interactive features in vanilla JS without depending on 3rd party libraries.


Ideally, you’ll also have experience with Type Script, React, Jest, Git and GraphQL with exposure to Agile delivery principles and practices such as Scrum or Kanban. A degree in a computing-related subject and experience writing systems composed of small modules, each with clear responsibilities would be an advantage.


What We Offer


We take the safety and wellbeing of our employees seriously, especially at this challenging time. We have put in place robust Covid19 measures and are supporting our new employees with a smooth remote onboarding and training programme to make you feel welcome and part of our team.


We will soon be able to welcome our teams back to the office, however, we want to offer a balanced approach to office and home working - now and for the long-term future. We know that not everyone is the same, many people have embraced home working, whilst others can’t wait to get back. Therefore, we are offering our employees the opportunity to work from home up to 80% of the time with 20% of office time built in to ensure we get some face to face collaborative team time - and the chance for a coffee and a catch up. 


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.
