Java Developer

I’m interested


Leeds - St Johns

Contract type


Job description

The simple stuff is simple, the complex stuff is simple.



As a Java Developer you make this true for all our customers. William Hill’s been around for a long time, but our technology has changed beyond belief in the last few years. Look under the hood and you might be surprised by what you find. In our central Leeds tech hub, you’ll find sociable development teams who collaborate to solve problems creatively. And when we make recommendations, the business listens. Our culture is built on trust and encouragement. We’re looking for curious coders who want to push things forward, faster and smarter, never settling for second best. If you’re anything like us, you’ll enjoy and savour tackling that coding problem and won’t rest until it’s solved.



Your role in the team



Our Retail developers are making in-shop betting future proof – we’re no longer just the bookies on the high street. You can help us deliver omni-channel betting to customers – linking their online and shop accounts. Get involved in projects like the roll-out a state of the art EPOS system to over 2300 shops. That’s more UK shops than McDonalds and Burger King combined. What a way to make your mark.




Skills needed



We’re an agile Java house, so we need experienced Java Developers who can join an agile team. The skills we're looking for include Java 8, Springboot, Docker and an understanding of Microservices.  If you’ve got any experience using Kafka, Rabbit MQ, Python or Maven, that would be a bonus.



What we offer



We have a great office space in a vibrant part of Leeds City Centre – right in the middle of the creative heart of the UK. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live - a hub for digital and gaming companies with an active tech community. On top of a good salary and package, our benefits include pension, healthcare, bonus opportunities – and a cycle to work scheme (ideal for burning off all the pizza we eat.)



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.
